Gymnastics

Gymnastics is a very comprehensive sport that develops key physical and social skills such as balance, flexibility, coordination, spatial orientation, speed, strength, perseverance, confidence, patience, and self esteem. Gymnastics also provides a positive outlook toward physical activity and fosters a healthy lifestyle. Plus...kids love to flip and tumble!

We are currently working on class options for small group Gymnastics classes for Fall 2020. Please check back for updates!

Our Team Program is designed to prepare gymnasts for USAG competitions. Gymnasts first learn the necessary dance and acrobatic skills on the pre-competitive levels. Building on these skills they then learn the competitive routines they will perform at meets with gymnasts from other clubs in the region. Within the framework of positive reinforcement and encouragement, our coaches provide an opportunity for gymnasts to grow in skill level and confidence, creating an enriching experience that will add to their physical and social development. Extended hours offer team members time for additional practice on gymnastics skills. Time is also spent on  strength conditioning, endurance, and flexibility. Participation on a team is by invitation or scheduled tryout with our Gymnastics Director, Valencia Chang. For USAG levels 1 to 5.
