Broken Arrow Parks & Rec is offering tumbling and gymnastics classes for just $35 per month at the Nienhuis Park Community Center!
The Roly Poly class is a fun-based gymnastics class that encourages the development and progression of fundamental motor skills of children. A variety of physically active games, songs with movement, and other sports-related skills will be incorporated. This is for ages 2.5 – 4 years and is held each Wednesday from 11:15a – 12p.
The Tumbling Tykes class focuses on basic tumbling and gymnastics skills for the beginner but also progressively gets more challenging. Further development of coordination, balance, strength and flexibility will also be a focus. Cooperative games are used to help the children learn how to work together as well as how to listen and follow instructions while having fun. This is for ages 4 – 6 and meets Wednesdays from 5p – 5:45p.
Finally, tumbling gymnastics is offered for ages 6 – 11. This is a very diverse class. Every month there will be a different focus on curriculum. Knowledge of some tumbling is helpful but not required. While the skills in this class do get progressively more challenging, FUN is still the main focus. Team building is also incorporated through games. Classes meet Mondays from 6p – 7p or Wednesdays from 6:30p – 7:30p.
Pre-registration is required for all programs. To sign up, please visit either community center or call 918-259-6550.
