The SPARKLE Curriculum

NOLA SPARKLE is an eight-week mentorship program at NOLA Gymnastics that helps young gymnasts explore how they can SPARKLE not only as athletes, but as people.

In weekly sessions incorporated within their training, we will use games and storytelling to introduce our athletes to 7 core concepts. While these concepts are important in gymnastic training, the girls will learn how these ideas also can empower them in life outside of the gym.  

The NOLA SPARKLE program will culminate in a very sparkly gymnastics meet and ceremony. Our goal is that the girls will leave feeling empowered, and know that they each SPARKLE in their own special way.

The course will be incorporated into training time at NOLA Gymnastics, so there is no added cost to usual lessons.
