Children must be a minimum of 3 years by the first week of the term, feel confident jumping on two feet, balancing on one foot for 5 seconds, walking up/down stairs holding a handrail, moving forward and backward with agility and catching a bounced ball (some of the time!). Some children may jump backward, gallop, jump from a small height, somersault and swing on a bar.
Jump Three is a gentle introduction to an all-by-myself class. This low-ratio program focuses on the social development necessary for children to thrive in a sport setting; encouraging peer cooperation and turn taking, taking direction from, and communicating needs to, an instructor without a caregiver intermediary and mastering basic skills independently. Support will be given to help children separate from caregivers.
