Your Gymnastics Classes questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do gymnastics lessons cost?

Gymnastics classes cost $20 to $70 per class on average, depending on the length, intensity, and frequency of the lessons. Most classes last 30 to 90 minutes at local community centers and increase in length the older you are.

Most beginning students take one class per week with a group of other beginning gymnasts of the same age group. As students advance in skills or interests, they may take classes 3 days a week or more. The monthly fee usually includes open gym sessions each week where students can get extra practice on the equipment.

How is gymnastics different than tumbling?

Gymnastics is a sport in which women compete in 4 primary events: bars, beams, floor, and vault. Male gymnasts compete in floor, vault, rings, pommel horse, parallel bars, and horizontal bar events.

Tumbling is a gymnastics discipline focusing solely on floor work. The athletes perform a series of acrobatic skills down a 25-meter sprung track. Each pass comprises elements of jumps, flips, and twists.

Are private gymnastics lessons worth it?

Private lessons are a great way to help students improve skills at a faster pace. Private lessons can be shorter, starting at 30 minutes to focus on a single skill or an hour or longer to work on several skills. In a private lesson, the student gets more opportunities for repetition since they aren't waiting on others to use the equipment or floor space.

In private lessons, the coach can focus solely on one student, giving feedback with every pass. They provide detailed instruction, encouragement, and correction without embarrassing the student in front of others.

At what age should you start gymnastics lessons?

Some gymnastics programs start taking children as young as 2 or 3 years old, but many instructors suggest waiting until your child is between 4 and 6 years old.

For children under 5 years old, tumbling classes are a great way to introduce basic gymnastics moves like somersaults, cartwheels, and backward rolls. Once they've mastered these skills, they move on to introductory gymnastics classes.

Serious gymnastics training can have health consequences for the young. Injuries are common and training too hard can lead to other issues like stunted growth or delayed puberty. Parents must weigh these risks against their child's passion and abilities.

What questions should I ask when choosing a gymnastics instructor?

When meeting with a potential gymnastics instructor, be prepared with a list of questions to help you feel confident you are making the best choice for your child. Here are some questions to ask:

  • How much are the classes?
  • What days and times are classes offered?
  • How many students are in each class? How many teachers?
  • Do you do a free trial lesson?
  • What days and times are available for my beginner gymnast?
  • How do you decide when a child should advance to the next level class?
  • How will you communicate with me about my child's progress?
  • What is your expectation regarding practice commitments?
  • Can the parents attend practices?

How to choose a gymnastics program?

Choosing a gymnastics program or instructor is an important decision. You want to make sure your child is in a safe and supportive learning environment. Do your research and be sure to consider the following recommendations:

  • Visit the gym and check for cleanliness and safety measures in place.
  • Ask other parents about their experiences.
  • Read reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask about a free trial lesson to gauge your child's interest.
  • Ask about the cancellation policy and if you can make up lessons missed due to illness.
  • Don't make long-term commitments until you are sure your child is passionate about the sport.
  • Make sure the gym carries insurance to cover injuries while in class or private lessons.
