Leap Frog Program
Children are likely to become bored if an activity is too easy and frustrated if an activity is too hard. Jump!’s goal is to help children develop a life-long love for movement and physical activity. Children being challenged within their ability level is important to us, so we have developed an innovative level system to ensure happy, healthy little gymnasts. The Leap Frog Program takes 90 gymnastics skills and breaks them down into 6 fun and challenging levels (Yellow, Orange, Red, Blue, Green and Tie-Dye).
This ensures that students will feel success early and often while being constantly challenged.
Getting Started in the Leap Frog Program
The Lifetime Membership Fee covers the cost of the Welcome Packet, which includes everything needed to start the journey down Jump!’s Leap Frog Program.
In the welcome packet, you will find a take-home skill chart (and frog stickers). This chart includes 15 skills that will be worked on and mastered during the students current level. The frog heads on the chart represent the progression path up the levels. Also included in the welcome packet is a uniform that represents the color of the students starting level. Boys will receive a t-shirt and shorts and girls a leotard.
Working the Level
At the completion of a lesson, about every 3 weeks, students will receive a ribbon indicating the skills they have mastered. On the back of this ribbon is a label with the name of a gymnastics skill or progression that corresponds to an element on the take home skill chart. Students place a frog sticker inside the box next to the corresponding skill. Don’t worry, if you lose track, we keep up with their progress at the gym too.
Advancing to the Next Level
When the chart is full, it’s time to ADVANCE. No need to wait until the student turns a year older to move up, our Leap Frog Program allows students to advance as soon as they have the skills. Students get to participate in an advancement ceremony where they will demonstrate a selection of skills from their skill chart and receive a medal symbolizing the completion of the level.
Advancement Fees are $30 for Boys and $40 for Girls and include a new skill chart, uniform, a gymnastics medal and a certificate of achievement.
