The YMCA gymnastics program is patterned after
the U.S.A. Gymnastics Federation Junior Olympic Program. We offer
beginner through advanced instruction. Our goal is to help each
child achieve their highest potential through proper skill progression
with safety as our number one concern.
The time that it takes for a child to progress through the levels
depends upon age, strength, flexibility, body type and determination.
Our fully equipped YMCA gymnasium includes uneven bars, balance
beams, vaulting horse, practice pit and 40’ x 40’
spring floor exercise mat, plus an area specifically designed
for the “Minis” gymnast with low beams, wedge mats
and tot-sized vault.
Gymnastics instruction for ages 3 – 5 on all pieces of apparatus.
Children will accomplish skills, learn gymnastics body positions
and develop the listening skills and cooperation necessary for
moving up into the gymnastics program. Gymnastics at this level
is an enjoyable as well as productive learning experience.
