Our Recreational Program is for girls aged 5 & up and is based off of skill level. Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have a Boys' gymnastics program past our  co-ed preschool program.

Keep in mind, our levels are  double levels. So, it's ok if you child needs to do the same level multiple sessions. Remember, each child works at a different pace. Some skills come easily, and some take more time! When your child is ready to move up, she will receive a move-up certificate or your child's coach will let you know. Otherwise, please register for the same level.

If your child has previous gymnastics experience, please set up a time for a quick evaluation!
