Gymnastics, Tumbling & Cheer

Recreational Gymnastics and Tumbling

Our recreational gymnastics program is designed for girls and boys of all ages and abilities. Our philosophy is to teach gymnastics as a lifetime sport. Classes are specific to age and ability level so gymnasts can progress at their own pace. Children develop discipline, perseverance, self-confidence, strength, and flexibility with a spirit of play and fun.

Check out just a few of our classes!

Ninja Classes

Three levels of Ninja classes are now offered! Mini Ninjas, Ninja Stars and Super Ninjas will explore training drills inspired by American Ninja Warrior using strength, stability and more. Powered in part by a grant from Power Play, there is no shortage of fun in these classes.


Classes for our youngest gymnasts use skill-builder equipment such as wedges, octagons, mini bars, and floor beams to incorporate fun and imagination. Morning, evening, and weekend classes are offered. Classes are with parent (or caregiver).


With both Cheernastics and Tumbling for Cheer classes available, even our littlest cheer leaders are learning skills like technique and form for cheers and the drills to master tumbling.
