Fall 2020 Class Schedule

Depending on your child’s goals, we will place them in one of our fun recreational classes or in our fast-paced developmental classes. Most children start in recreational classes, and are invited to advance after showing completion of the skills for their level. If your child has previous gymnastics experience, we will schedule an evaluation to determine the appropriate placement. All classes are subject to availability.

Gymnastics has definitely impacted who I am as a person. I have learned through conditioning, hard work, and long practices that teach me how to push through to achieve my goals. I am stronger emotionally because of competing (which can be pretty nerve racking!) and learning how to face my fears.
