Balance, Coordination & Confidence
The Tri-Cities Family YMCA has gymnastics classes you’ll flip for! We teach kids to tumble, run, jump and twist in our gymnastics program while helping them to develop muscular strength, flexibility and body awareness. Our program is designed to provide a safe, nurturing environment for children to develop gymnastics skills as well as the four YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. You’ll love the combination of quality gymnastics and fun provided by our highly qualified staff!
Our beginner dance and cheer classes are designed for kids who like to move and shake it up a little. We offer classes for a wide range of ages and they include opportunities for parent participation, dress up, rhythmic movement and more.
Check out our current Program Guide for class dates and times.
Preschool Gymnastics (3 – 5 Yrs)
Your little one will learn basic gymnastics skills on all four events. As your little one gets older and progresses through the class we will work on transitioning them onto the larger equipment. Our most advanced preschool classes will be primarily on the larger equipment with a focus on familiarizing them with it in preparation for our School-Aged Gymnastics classes.
Youth Progressive Gymnastics (6 – 15 Yrs)
Our beginning classes are designed for children who have little to no experience with gymnastics. As your child progresses, our coaches will evaluate their skills and make a class recommendation. Along with advancing in their skills, your child will learn correct form and build the strength necessary for progressive skills on Bars, Beam, Floor and Vault.
Boys Gymnastics (4 – 12 Yrs)
We will focus on body control, correct form, and flexibility as your child increases in their skill difficulty. We offer classes for beginners and to those who are more advanced in their skill set.
USAG & AAU Competitive Gymnastics Team (Girls only, 4 – 15 Yrs)
Our Gymnastics teams are designed with an emphasis on FUN!
We offer a fun and encouraging atmosphere and have classes for every skill level and age. There are 3 team options, HOUSE, FUN, and COMPETITIVE. The team environment is motivating and will help you learn new skills, make forward progress and help you achieve your goals. The girls will have the opportunities to attend a variety of meets from our home YMCA Fun Meets to competitions held at local gyms as well as huge arenas within the state. You may also choose to travel and attend regional and national meets! The YMCA Team is just that, a group of girls working and growing together, building friendships and striving for the same goal both individually and as a Team. Gymnastics will compete, have team uniforms and grow in their love for gymnastics as they accomplish new skills and goals.
Our Team program runs year around and we recommend you join in the Fall, but we do offer the option to join during the year also. For more information on the team, contact our Youth Sports office.
