In an effort to support kids, families and our community this Fall, we are proud to announce SGA Plus; three different programs intended to provide schedule flexibility, supervised childcare, and most importantly, physical activity and safe socialization for our kids.
All of our programs will be facilitated with the same utmost attention to health and safety SGA upholds every day; adhering to all capacity, distancing, sanitization and wellness mandates to keep us safe. Group sizes will be small and cohorts will be kept together with their Coach, with minimal crossover with other cohorts to limit exposure.
Choose the program best for your family, and bring your friends to form your own pod!
Enroll online through your SGA account, or reach out to us directly and we are happy to help (contact info below).
Gym Plus: 2-hours of engaging after-school activity
Created with schedule flexibility in mind, Gym Plus is intended to achieve multiple objectives during remote learning:
- Ensure kids are still getting physical activity in lieu of missed P.E. at school
- Allow for safely distanced, yet meaningful socialization with peers
- Engage minds off-screen through games and learning activities that are age-appropriate
- Allow parents and caregivers a scheduled time block with supervised childcare
Enrollment: 1 day, 2-days or 3-days per week options
Cost: $194 per month for 1-day option, $280 per month for 2-day option, $330 per month for 3-day option; monthly enrollment required
Group size: 5-7 to 1 coach
Gym Plus will utilize gymnastics-based physical activity, but will be easily approachable, fun and achievable for kids of any ability. Two-hours will be split between time in the gym, and games and/or learning activities that will be appropriate for the age group of the cohort.
*Our Lake City location currently offers a preschool 4-5Y Gym Plus group, which in addition to time in the gym, utilizes the Seattle Preschool classroom and outdoor play space (Lake City also offers 6-10Y school-age Gym Plus groups). Ballard and Columbia City offer Gym Plus for ages 5-10 (all locations’ Gym Plus groups are split into age-appropriate cohorts).
School Plus: A full day, full week student support program
For families looking for a full day of safe and meaningful supervision during remote learning, School Plus is designed to support student’s daily virtual schoolwork, while ensuring bodies are also kept active, along with minds.
Throughout this full 8:00am-3:30pm day, students will have dedicated time for schoolwork with the support and guidance of well-trained SGA staff, as well as time in the gym for guided gymnastics-based physical activity that is fun and achievable for kids of any ability, and plenty of physically-distanced socialization with peers through group games and fun, off-screen educational projects (i.e., experiments, art, etc.).
Days: Mon-Fri – enrollment is for 5 days/week
Cost: $591 per week; 10% discount for monthly enrollment
Group size: 10 students to 1 staff member for school / educational time, 5 students to 1 staff member for activities in the gym

SGA will create structured schedule’s for cohort groups that align with Seattle Public School’s (or your child’s school) confirmed remote learning plan (once provided). Staff will help troubleshoot any technology difficulties, keep students on-track and assist with time management, and keep parents updated on progress or where additional help may be needed at home.
In addition to adhering to learning schedules, the School Plus program will provide morning and afternoon guided active time in the gym and a rotation of social games, collaborative exploration, and educational projects (as allowed per school schedules) to break up the screen time and stay engaged; and of course dedicated time for snacks and lunch (student provided) as well!
Playdate Plus: 1-hour of structured fun for 3 & 4-year-olds
This twice a week 1-hour block will combine 30 minutes of physical activity, plus 30 minutes to work our minds in educational fun things like games or stories. We’ll wiggle, giggle and get strong in a structured environment that will keep our kids and their families safe.
The Playdate Plus program is designed to offer 3 & 4-year-olds an opportunity to exert energy while engaging their minds and bodies. Young kids will benefit from social interaction with peers and a new adult figure – from a safe distance – while also allowing parents and caregivers to have a bit of a break – something we know has been much needed this year.
Enrollment: 2-days / week
Cost: $194 per month for two days a week; monthly enrollment required
Group size: 4
*While we are still holding on offering in-gym gymnastics classes for 3-year-olds at this time, we felt we could successfully offer this hybrid structured hour of physical activity and learning for little ones. We will be working off of gymnastics-based physical activity, however we will not be solely-focused on attaining the gymnastics skills we look to accomplish in a traditional gymnastics class – so that we can better manage the ability to safely physically distance young children in activities they are confident in doing independently (while being actively supervised), and switch to engaging their growing minds in the same session.
Bring your pod!
Have a group of friends, family or neighbors that you want to keep together? Contact us to book your own pod for any of the above programs! We’ll work to create a class just for you based on availability.
A full pod for School Plus or Gym Plus is 5 kids, Playdate Plus is 4 kids. If you have a smaller group, we can help add new friends to your pod to make it full, or groups can choose to pay the full cost of the group and keep the pod smaller.
For School Plus & Gym Plus, we ask that there not be any more than 4 years age-difference between pod participants as to not compromise the quality of the program. For Playdate Plus, all children in the pod must be 3 or 4 years old.
