Balancin' Blue Jackets

  • Balancin’ Blue Jackets is a 9 week after-school beginner’s gymnastics program at Aynor Elementary for students in kindergarten and first grade. The program focuses on building a foundation of beginner’s gymnastics skills, such as splits, jumps, rolls, handstands, bridges, and cartwheels. Gymnastics benefits include flexibility, strength, and coordination, as well as benefitting students' social skills and confidence. This program would be a perfect fit for any child with little to no experience who wants to gain a further understanding of the sport. 


    The program is led by kindergarten teacher, Kaitlyn Ryhal, who was a gymnast for 10 years and also coached the sport for 3 years. Her goal for this program is to bring her passion for the sport she loves to the school she loves!
