Level 5 & Up TEAM

The main objective of these programs are to provide students with an opportunity to maximize their potential while maintaining the highest quality of all other programs listed in this site. We do not support any coaching styles or training methods that do not contribute to the psychological development of the athletes.

Students coming to us from other gyms can enter these programs too, via an assessment exam (call the gym for details).

This program involves a more enriched and intense gymnastic workout. It is recommended that these children attend a minimum of two times per week. More frequent training sessions provide the necessary repetition the gymnast will require to maintain this skill level.

Boys and Girls are coached in separate groups.
