Gymnastics - YMCA of Southwestern Indiana

Gymnastics

The YMCA Sports Academy provides year-round gymnastics programming and training (to include gymnastics, tumbling, dance, cheer, Ninjanastics and Nerf Battle) designed to assist participants with the advancement of their individual skill level.  Each program is structured and lead by experienced gymnastics staff that are dedicated to each child’s skill development.  Gymnastics program levels are available from introductory to advanced (currently Level 3) and program structure is designed to nurture skill development, teamwork and sportsmanship.

Parent-Tot Open Play Gymnastics
This program is designed to function as an open play gymnastics time. Each participant will be accompanied by their parent while moving at their own pace from desired station to desired station. This is a great introductory program for students not yet ready for an instructor-led class on their own! Our gymnastics instructors will be on site if needed to answer questions and to ensure safety. This is not a class led by our gymnastics coaches. Instructor-led classes begin at the junior gym level.  First time participants receive a t-shirt.

A PARENT MUST ACCOMPANY EACH CHILD TO EACH CLASS SESSION AND PARTICIPANTS SHOULD WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHING.
