Preschool Recreational Programs

Designed for students aged 18 months to 5 years, our Preschool Recreational Programs focus on on teaching life skills while providing a strong athletic foundation through gymnastics. Children will learn about listening, following instructions, and paying attention by participating in circuits designed to improve motor skills and coordination.

Students get to jump, tumble, stretch, and twist, enhancing their body awareness and instilling a love for physical activity.

Welcome to Lil’ Dippers - Champions Westlake’s Parent-Child class!


We are so excited to have you and your child in the program! You and your little one are going to have so much fun together! Below you will find some information to help prepare for your Lil’ Dippers class:

Class Objectives

We understand that all children learn and progress differently and through much experience and training, we have found that children learn best through play and self-paced exploration. Along with that aspect of learning, we also want each Little Dipper to experience a successful transition into our 3-5 year old independent gymnastics class. Our ultimate goal is to provide an environment that fulfills both needs.

Lil’ Dippers are encouraged to climb, crawl, and jump from station to station, with a focus on basic motor patterns. We encourage and practice sharing, taking turns and following simple instructions, which are important to social development.

Champion Coaches will quickly demonstrate skills at the beginning of each station. This helps you know the purpose of each activity, as well as what the skill will eventually look like. However, please don’t be discouraged if your child simply prefers to run or climb instead of practicing the intended activity. After all, running, jumping and climbing are essential skills and we are happy to provide a safe, fun environment to practice all gross motor skills, as well as some of the more structured gymnastics skills as your child becomes ready. The goal is for each child to feel success with any and all attempts, so feel free to encourage, clap, and give high-fives! Repetition is key at this age, so it is a great idea to have your Lil’ Dipper repeat skills and activities. If your child refuses, however, there is no need to force it. We want gymnastics at Champions to be a positive experience for you and your child!

Please feel free to ask the coaches, at any time, if you are unsure of the purpose of the activity, need help spotting your child or need to make the activity more or less challenging.

Safety in the Gym

Parents and Tots share in the excitement of working through each station as partners, so it is important that you stay with your child and participate with them in class. Toddlers are curious in nature, therefore we expect that your child will want to wander off to explore. In order to ensure safety and maintain class organization, please follow your child and redirect them back to the group. Please remember to dress in athletic clothing that will allow you to participate comfortably. If someone else will be participating with your child, such as a nanny or grandparent, please share this information with them, as well.

We can’t wait to see you in class, it’s going to be a fun and exciting experience for you and your little one to share with each other!
