A little about what we offer
We offer a range of classes that introduce the sport of artistic gymnastics. Practicing skills on the vault, bars, beam, and floor, participants will improve agility and flexibility, gain strength and balance, all while learning a lot of fun skills! The skills learned in a gymnastics class not only prepare an athlete for more dedicated gymnastics training but also provide a solid skill background that can be transferred to almost any sport. In addition to the four main apparatus, participants will also have opportunities to use other equipment in the gym, such as trampolines, rings, rope swings, and much more!
All of our classes require a minimum of 3 athletes to run or the class will be cancelled.
