Gymnastics

Children benefit from an active lifestyle and participating in any sport. The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that partaking in organized sports provides a chance for young people to increase their activity and develop socially and physically. Gym.Net adds that gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive lifestyle exercise programs available to children, incorporating strength, flexibility, speed, balance, coordination, power, and discipline. Whether they are involved in recreational gymnastics or with a competition squad, skills learned in gymnastics can benefit a child’s overall development.

All school-age gymnastics classes are for ages six and above (unless otherwise specified). For classes for students aged five and below, please check out our fantastic preschool programs! If you’re not sure what class your child should be enrolled in, please stop in or give us a call at 412-220-1195. We will be happy to evaluate his or her skill level so they can be registered in the correct class!
