All Mukilteo Academy students participate in 30 minute weekly gymnastics class lead by the Leading Edge Gymnastics Academy (LEGA) mobile unit. Gymnastics classes for this age group cater to the children’s need for social development as well as movement education.
LEGA coaches present our students with basic gymnastics skills such as rolling, swinging, jumping, and balancing. Body positions, which they will use month after month, are instilled through repetition. These positions include tuck, straddle, pike, and stretch (or layout). More difficult skills such as backward rolls, handstands, and cartwheels are taught with the aid of LEGA coaches.
