ARE YOU NEW TO GYMNASTICS?


WHY GYMNASTICS?

Did you hear about the sport from a friend or neighbor and want to find out more? 

First, you're in the right spot.  We offer programs for boys and girls, both competitively through Junior Olympics and casually through our recreational classes.  

If you have a child that is interested in gymnastics regardless of age or school they are attending, have them check out one of our free intro resources located in the right-hand column. 

Gymnastics is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the country right now. Don't worry if your kid has never been to the gym before, as most kids here haven't so your child is not at a disadvantage.  A lot of kids have only joined the sport in the last year to two, and every year we add more new kids to our programs.
