    Rec Gymnastics – bring a friend day 

    I’ve always found the best way to build membership in a Rec program is with this kind of promotion. The only major issue is insurance.

    I always hire extra instructors. You can never be sure how many friends are going to arrive. 🙂

    Right To Play USA Gymnastics 

    USA Gymnastics and Right To Play, a global organization that uses sport and play programs to educate and empower children facing adversity, recently joined forces to bring gymnastics and the opportunity to play to children across the United States.

    National Gymnastics Day is a natural vehicle to provide outreach to disadvantaged youth.

    With this year’s National Gymnastics Day less than two months away, USA Gymnastics is offering grants to USA Gymnastics member clubs that are creating special events to celebrate National Gymnastics Day and provide opportunities to children who currently do not have access to gymnastics. …

    … three of the USA’s well-known gymnasts – 2012 Olympic all-around champion Gabrielle Douglas, 2008 Olympic horizontal bar silver-medalist Jonathan Horton and 2008 Olympic team silver-medalist Alicia Sacramone – will serve as Right To Play Athlete Ambassadors and co-chairs of National Gymnastics Day. …

    Up to 25 $1,000 grants are available to USA Gymnastics Member Clubs.

    Gymnastics bring a friend week 

    The most effective way to increase membership, in my experience.

    Insurance coverage is the only issue.

    Mismo – Gymnastics parties 

    Mismo’s First Friday is More than just Gymnastics its FUN!

    Mismo Gymnastics has the best kids party and kids activities in Missoula, Montana!

    First Fridays are full of jumping on trampolines, flying through the air, …

    Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

    Founder of Mismo Gymnastics Kelley Durbin (Facebook) was contacted this week by the producers of reality TV show Dance Moms:

    They wanted to interview me to see if we might be selected for their reality show…oh the poor women I just gave a lecture to.

    I told her that when ever they get around to doing a show about a gym or studio that DOES NOT support drama and prefers to work WITH parents for the betterment of our children’s future, THEN they can call me! Otherwise, I could not support anything that encourages self-promotion, child and parent exploitation, and silliness!

    Kelley is recently engaged, by the way. 🙂

    Class Planning for Rec Gymnastics 

    by site editor Rick McCharles
    Rick_McCharles@hotmail.com

    Presented at the annual BC Gymnastics Congress.

    Class Planning for Recreational Gymnastics

    Successful programs have good leadership: Yearly Plan, Session Plan and individual Class Plans. In this workshop we will analyze the Class Plan and goals in great detail, the objective to optimize every precious minute we have with the kids.

    Click PLAY or watch my presentation on YouTube.

    Our goal is to MAKE THE MAGIC HAPPEN the moment the kids arrive until the moment you deliver them to the parents.

    Gymnastics should be the best 90min of their week.

    Coaches requested information links to the best lesson plans for Rec classes. My personal favourites are for SCHOOLS, but they can be adapted to the club situation:
