Pride’s Cubs (6-11)
Similar to gymnastics, children will learn how to use their bodies, to create movement patterns and to support their own body weight during both of our cubs classes.
Pride’s Barbell Cubs
Pride’s barbell cubs is a children's course which Pride Performance offers as an introduction to weightlifting for primary school aged children (6-11) using specialist technique equipment. Children will not be allowed to progress into using weight until they are ready to do so and progressions will be slow, steady and within their capable limit. Pride's barbell cubs classes are about allowing children to have fun, learn how they can move and to learn new techniques for a sport which is something different and exciting!
Pride’s Fit Cubs
