Gymnastics

 

Gymnastics training increases strength and flexibility, enhancing performance and preventing injury in any sport. In addition to being a sport itself, gymnastics is often used as cross training for other sports like martial arts, swimming, diving, and dance.

Whether you train in gymnastics to compete, cross-train, or just for fun and exercise, the self-discipline, self-confidence, individual responsibility, and sense of teamwork you gain from gymnastics training are positive character skills that carry over into all life endeavors.

YMCA gymnastics classes begin at the preschool level and progress through youth level classes and on to team competition, depending on skill level and interest.

Attire: Please wear a leotard, or fitted shorts and a t-shirt. Hair should be pulled back. Please no long, loose clothing, skirts, or footed tights.

As of May 27, the only class running at this time will be Team Gymnastics. Please review our safety guidelines below.
