Welcome to Albert Lea Gymnastics Club! Registration for classes will begin sometime in September, with classes beginning the first week of November!
Don't forget to stretch!
I stumbled upon this awesome cartoon demonstration of the stretch from cheer conditioning academy. When first pike might seem lower , it is mostly only stretching the lower back, but if you want to target the hamstrings the second demo is what you need! keep lengthening from the tailbone as you flex in the hips. Only go as low as you can maintain the long line of the back. @ballet4sports #flexibilitytraining #flexibilitydrills
What a great idea! Get your chalk and have some fun ❤ Show us your skills! 🤸🏾♀️🤸🏻♂️
Congratulations to our very own Coach Kayln for finishing medical school!
Beautiful day for some handstand workout outside 🙃
I know lots of gymnasts are practicing at home right now, 🏠 Are you doing your handstand correctly? 🤸🏼♀️
You can use this image as a checklist to check if you are achieving the ideal position on the right. ✅
If there are some areas that you lacking, now is definitely the time to get in some extra, purposeful practice! 👊🏼

gymmomentum.com Home Conditioning Plan for while your gym is closed.
We are closed as of today, reopening Monday, March 30th if schools reopens. We are bummed, as we have so much in store for our sweet peas at the club, but it's super important we stay home, and let medical professionals stay on top of new cases coming in, and we as a community don't spread the virus. Hoping...our older folks and friends are able to remain healthy.
We will be sending out emails today with info too. And we will put fun videos out on our page for parents to show their kids, what "gymnastics" things they can do at home. And some spotting a parent can do!
Check on your older friends, family, set aside time for longer phone calls with grandmas (missing her one day of week of seeing friends at church, etc.), maybe for yourself😉, etc.
Sending all our love to our families and friends!
-ALGC Staff & Coaches
Hello ALGC Families,
The Showcase this coming weekend is postponed to Friday, May 8th and Saturday, May 9th. This is also the last day of the season.
Next Saturday, the 21st will then be regular classes rather than show.
We will start summer sessions early June ♡
The In-House Competition is still scheduled for April 17-19th.
Classes will go on as normal. We have extra hand sanitizers, and cleaning supplies. We will all take turns washing hands as coaches after a class ends and cleaning floor tumbling mats, equipment after each class ends. There are plenty of us for this to not disrupt the class coming in next to start stretching.
We follow USA Gymnastics recommendations, and their recent protocols.
Remember if you feel sick as a parent or your child, do not come into the building. Remember, we have makeup dates to help families.
In the event that AL Schools were to close, we obviously will follow ♡
Last highlight for today😉😉 We are so proud of you all!

Good Evening! Some parents are in need of a few last minute size ups (finding out last minute kids grew a little😉)and looking for the blue club leotards for pictures Saturday (see email sent today). We at the club are sold out of child small, child medium and child large this week. We do have child xs, and adult sizes remaining.
There is a Albert Lea Gymnastics Club Leotards and Equipment For Sale Group.
We would appreciate if your child sized up this year and if you still have the smaller one from last year.. that you wouldn't mind selling on our buy and sell group. A few parents are standing by!
Thanks so much!❤
💙🤓💚 Our preschoolers learn this on so many levels from their little sized vault, floor skills and dismounting off beam! Come join us!
Children should be able to jump with both feet at the same time on the spot at the age of 2 years. However, with the introduction of more TV and less walking to and from shops, we encourage jumping with both feet by 4 years of age.
In my opinion, children should be able to jump with both feet in a forward direction (like this photo) at the age of 5 years.
I often get asked by teachers "what does jumping have to do with reading and writing".
A lot actually...
Jumping uses the part of the brain called the cerebellum. This part of the brain is responsible for our gross motor skill of balance, as well as focus, concentration, and attention.
Children who typically find it difficult to jump and balance, may also find it hard to focus, and may be easily distracted in the classroom because their cerebellum isn't receiving the stimulation and oxygen that it needs for optimal function.
