- Skills Clinics at Texas East Gymnastics are hour long sessions that give our students an opportunity to learn several advanced gymnastics skills, or improve a challenging skill needed for passing their level testing. The students will be totally immersed in that one skill for the entire clinic to ensure cognitive understanding, recognize his/her strengths & weaknesses during that skill, and to develop a plan to master the skill.
- Students will be introduced to drills which work the pre-skills necessary to build up to the desired larger skill. These drills will also help them gain a better understanding of what is needed to progress in the desired skill. They will then be given practice skills which can be continued at home in order to continue progress beyond the time allotted at the clinic.
- Skills Clinics are usually offered every 4 to 6 weeks. Students can choose to work on one of the four skills offered at that time. Some of the more advanced skills offered include cartwheels, kickovers, back handsprings, pullovers and back hip circles. Sign up is available at the front desk the week of the Skills Clinic.
