There are eight four-week sessions starting Jan. 9 through April 4 at City Hall. Each class meets weekly for four weeks. Registration is due Jan. 4 for the session beginning Jan. 9.

There are three different levels for children of different ages:

Dynamic Duo, Parent & Child, for children 18 months through age 3. Participants will learn fundamentals. Each class will include a warm up, skill development period and closing activity. Themes will change throughout the year and include creative skill building activities. Classes starting Jan. 9 meet from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m.

Pond Hoppers, for children age 3.5 to 5. Participants will be introduced to beginning skills on the floor, vault, bars and beam. The course's goal is to develop each child's physical potential and increase self esteem by providing a successful experience in a non-competitive setting.
