Competitive Gymnastics

The South Mountain YMCA has a long history with gymnastics that we are proud to continue to offer.  Our ACES Team members (ages 8-18 years) work very hard every week to learn new skills, cheer each other on and get fit while doing so.  The 2012-2013 season was a very successful year for our Gymnastics Team with several team members competing across the state, winning several awards. Our staff members have been with us for several years and are all excellent role models for our team members, cheering them on with every attempt at a medal both individually and as team members.


PRE-TEAM GYMNASTICS

Are you interested in becoming a part of our competitive Aces Gymnastics Team? The pre-team program was created to introduce gymnasts to our competitive program as early as possible to make the transition from classes to the team program a smooth one. Gymnasts will learn the basics of competitive-style gymnastics with a concentration on tumbling and dance connections, routine requirements, and essential gymnastics drills. Work out with the team twice a week improving your skills on all four gymnastics events.  This program is held at the South Mountain Y Gymnasium.

Pre-Team Schedule  (2 days/week)

Monday 5:00 - 7:30pm

Thursday 5:00 - 7:30pm
