Helping Your Child Become a Great Gymnast 

About Us

Valley-Wide Elite Gymnastics in Hemet, CA strives hard to provide quality gymnastics training to all students. We handle each training session with fun and safety in mind, as well as focus on improving our students’ physical and social development.

Each student deserves the best instruction possible. Our staff is dedicated to assisting all participants to reach their highest potential. In addition, our learning environment is designed to cultivate listening skills, confidence, and self-discipline.

Affiliations

Our mentor, Fallbrook Gymnastics, has been helping us prepare for the Gymnastics for All program. This will soon be implemented in the summer of 2016.

Our Specializations

Gymnastics evolved from the exercises used by the ancient Greeks. These included skills for mounting and dismounting a horse, and from circus performance skills. Through the years, gymnastics evolved into a well-loved and challenging sport.

Internationally, all events are governed by the Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG). Each country has its own national governing body (BIW) affiliated to FIG.

The following are types of gymnastics that we focus on.

Artistic Gymnastics

Artistic gymnastics is a sport that involves the performance of exercises, which require strength, flexibility, balance, and control. Competitive artistic gymnastics is the most popular among the gymnastic events.

It typically involves the women's events of vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise. Men's events include floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars, and the high bar.

Rhythmic Gymnastics

In Rhythmic gymnastics, individuals or teams of five or more use one or two pieces of apparatus, including clubs, hoops, balls, ribbons, and ropes. Gymnasts also perform freehand or with no apparatus.

This type of gymnastics combines elements of ballet, gymnastics, dance, and apparatus manipulation. In competitions, a panel of judges assesses gymnasts based on their leaps, balances, pirouettes (pivots), apparatus handling, and execution. The person who gets the most points win.

Gymnasts need to prepare a choreographed performance that covers the entire floor or stage, and it must have a balance of jumps, leaps, pivots, balances, and flexibility movements. In every movement, a high degree of athletic skill is involved.

Rhythmic gymnasts must have strength, power, flexibility, agility, dexterity, endurance, and hand-eye coordination to be successful in this type of gymnastics.

Acrobatic Gymnastics

This is a competitive gymnastic discipline where gymnasts work by pairs to perform complex figures. These figures consist of acrobatic moves, dance, and tumbling set to music.

In this type of gymnastics, athletes have to study or prepare three types of routines.

The first is a 'balance” routine, where gymnasts focus on showing their strength, poise, and flexibility. Next is the “dynamic” routine. This involves throws, somersaults, and catches. Lastly, there is a “combined” routine, which includes some elements from the first two routines. The combined routine is at FIG level 6 and above.

Class Rules

  • Parents are allowed in class, if they are respectful.
  • Gymnasts cannot wear jewelry during training.
  • We encourage the use of good hygiene.
  • Students should have bare feet; socks are not allowed due to slipping.
