Montana Performance Gym is committed to offer what is best for each athlete to grow and feel successful! Safety is our top priority; MPG coaches reserve the right to move athletes to classes and levels that best match the athlete’s ability and age. This will provide a safe learning environment as well as an appropriate amount of challenge for each athlete. Each class level has a set list of skills that must be mastered before a coach recommends him/her to move to the next level. If an athlete is especially eager to advance, you have the option to enroll in more than one class per week. Private lessons are also offered to help athletes perfect a certain skill that might be preventing placement in a more advanced class.
Evaluations for next level are done quarterly at our Show offs. Show offs are the opportunity for athletes to bring in their friends and family and show off the skills they have achieved. This is a free event and we encourage all athletes to take advantage of this opportunity.
