All ages and all abilities
The Academy is unique in showcasing gymnastics across the lifespan with many multi-generational families participating together in one activity/sport. With 50+ students over 60 years of age, four in their 90s, and many of them competing in trampoline meets, HA has very inspiring senior/elder students. With about two seniors dying per year there are many family stories of doing gymnastics right to the end of their life (or becoming a competitive athlete in the last ten years of their life). There are many three and four generation families exercising together, even an occasional five generation family. In addition to having students of all ages, HA has students of nearly all abilities: from remedial requiring special assistance to function, to world class athletes... even world champions. By promoting adult and senior/elder participation, children today see themselves as future active adults (like their parents, grand parents, and great grand parents). We have a broad range of adult programs (fitness, trampoline, tumbling, dance, martial arts, & circus skills) and Kupuna (50+ yrs) fitness classes and even teams that compete in trampoline gymnastics (19-98 yrs). We have had two year old to 97 year old state champions on the trampoline and several four-generation families competing in our meets. We have remedial classes for special needs populations and training programs for world class athletes. We provide educationally challenging and fun activities for ALL ages and abilities with gender equality. We aspire to achieve excellence in our programs. But more important than rapid skill achievement is breadth of application and development of personal values and training attitudes that transfer across endeavors throughout one's life. Gymnastics training is fundamental and transfers to all physical activities and sports (video).
We are also one of the largest outlets of Trampoline Shoes in the Pacific. We sell only white competition shoes (Distributed through Carita House in London, manufactured in Italy) for US$22. Orders of 10 pair or more get a 10% rebate check payable to the person making the order. Further discounts available for purchases of 200 and more pairs per shipment.
