OLYMPIC DREAMS START HERE

Gymnastic classes

Our Gymnastics program is one of the most successful programs at the Y! We start children out in Parent/Tot classes at age 1! Children can progress through the different stages of Gymnastics and Tumbling and Trampoline. We also have teams that compete against others throughout the year. In February we host our own Tumbling and Trampoline competition that is fun for the whole family. In every class of Gymnastics and Tumbling, we combine learning skills with fun. Safety is always a #1 priority. All branches of Gymnastics and Tumbling help develop motor skills through activities that increase strength, balance and body control.
