What a great month September has been. We’ve enjoyed getting to meet all the new faces at the gym. We hope your kids have enjoyed what they have learned so far. There is a lot more to learn however. So try really hard not to miss a practice. We cherish every moment we get to teach them bigger and better things.
We are “CHUNKING” this year!
In gymnastics each class builds on the last. The skills learned in prior classes become the building blocks for advanced gymnastic skills in future classes. Because it is so important to master a skill before moving on to another, Big Rock Gym is adopting a new and improved coaching technique this year that we describe as “chunking.”
This coaching technique will break down each skill into smaller and even smaller yet “chunks” that students will find much easier to digest, follow and master. In other words, the more a skill can be broken down and taught into parts, the easier it is to master the skill.
We are dedicated to improving your child’s experience at Big Rock Gymnastics. Myself and all the coaches look forward to seeing the light bulb go on in each child’s head as this new coaching technique is implemented.
Please let them rest at home. We want them to feel good when them come and work out and also not spread the illness if it is contagious. So thank you in advance for your consideration. Please call us and let us know if it will be a few days that they will be gone. Team girls should always call when they are not able to make it. We don’t like to worry and we do when the kids aren’t there.
What to do if you want to do a make up?
Call me (Carrie) and see if there is a class available to do a make up in. We like advanced notice so we can make sure we have enough coaches and that you are in the right class.
Yes, we love Halloween so let’s get excited. October 29th – November 2nd we are dressing up and having some fun. They’ll get to earn treats by doing a trick!! That’s the real way to do it, right?! Yes, they can dress up but we do have costume limitations because of the tumbling we do. Please look at the following requirements. I’ll send these in an email when we get closer to remind you.
1. Hair must still be pulled back
2. No glitter or hair dye or heavy makeup (it gets on the equipment)
3. Feet must still be bare (no tights)
4. Must be able to comfortably tumble and function the outfit
Team girls will not be dressing up because of the nature of their tricks. It is too dangerous but we will still be having a little party for them.
Stayed tuned for more fun stuff to come from Big Rock!
