Jungle Gymnastics   (Ages:  Walking to Age 5)

The Athletic Edge’s Jungle Gymnastics Program provides

children walking through five years old an opportunity to explore

age- appropriate activities in a safe, fun, kid-oriented environment.  While instructors provide positive reinforcement - the foundation

for a great experience – children are challenged at their own ability levels and praised for their interaction and efforts.  Skills that involve tumbling, swinging, balancing, jumping, rhythm, and hand/eye coordination are all part of the Jungle Gymnastics curriculum, with gymnastics skills developed along the way. Equipment is set up and effectively utilized to keep kids productive through their entire class.  Following directions and developing social skills such as sharing, taking turns, and cooperation are also an integral part of our classes.


Jungle Gymnastics Classes include: Wigglers, Spinners, Bouncers, Twisters, Flippers, Firecrackers, Mighty Mights, and Hot Shots.


Recreational Gymnastics  (Ages: 6+)

At 6 years old and above, all classes are based on skill level, not age. The different levels within recreational gymnastics for girls are Intro, Rec 1, Rec 2, and Rec 3.  The recreational classes offered for boys are Boys Rec 1 and Boys Rec 2/3.




Competitive Team  (Ages 6 - 18)

The Athletic Edge’s Competitive Team Gymnastics Program a.k.a. the Junior Olympic program of the USAG, was developed with the belief that all athletes, regardless of their potential, must have a solid foundation of basic skills in order to advance safely. The program allows the gymnast to advance at her own pace, competing at more than one level in a year, if she so chooses.

The Women's Junior Olympic Program is divided into three major segments.










Women’s Junior Olympic  Competitive Team Gymnastics Classes include:Wigglers, Spinners, Twisters, Flippers,Mighty Mights, Hot Shots, Rec 1, Rec 2, Rec 3 and Boys Classes:  Rec 1, Rec 2 and Rec 3.
