Our Mission

Making kids fit for the future.  It is our belief that gymnastics helps to develop physical qualities such as flexibility, strength, poise, agility and coordination, that it nurtures confidence, self-discipline, goal setting, and dedication.  Thus, our primary objective is to develop the whole person with care by giving attention to each child regardless of their natural physical ability or competitive motivation.  Success in gymnastics competition is an important by-product and goal.

Ages 18 months to 5 years old can benefit from gymnastics in our Tot class or our Parent-Tot class.

Tots gain self confidence while learning to listen and follow directions as well as body awareness in movement, coordination, balance, strength and fitness. Tots will learn gymnastics in a fun and safe environment on preschool-sized equipment. They will learn basic gymnastic skills incorporating fun themes each month.

Level 1-4 (age 5 & older) Students will learn fundamental gymnastics skills on Vault, Bars, Beam, Floor and Trampoline. The Level 1-4 curriculum is based on the skills provided by USA Gymnastics. As a gymnast is able to master skills, they will progress to the next level. They will have the opportunity to participate in Fun Meets in the Winter and Spring to show what they have learned. Stars, USAG and Xcel Teams by invitation only (special requirements apply).

Stars Teams include Tiny Stars, Future Stars, Rising Stars and Shining Stars. Gymnasts are selected out of the Tots and Level 1-4 program considering strength, flexibility, skill and attitude. Stars classes learn USAG skill progressions on vault, bars beam and floor as well as strength and flexibility in preparation for competitive gymnastics.

USAG and Xcel Teams – USA Gymnastics is the organization that governs the sport of gymnastics and selects the Olympic and National Team. Our program is based on the USAG Level 1-10 skills. Gymnasts start in local competitions and build their way up to state, regional, and national competitions. Gymnasts are invited to team considering strength, flexibility, attitude and skill.

Several of our athletes have received college scholarships. Many others have gone on to coaching gymnastics to pay their way through college.
