The YWCA gymnastics philosophy: The gymnast first; the sport second. This is a noncompetitive program in which the gymnast learns skills in a positive and safe environment. Classes include floor, balance beam, uneven bars, and stacked mat vaulting.

Beginner 1 Gymnastics is for young athletes (4-8). We will focus on learning forward rolls, backward rolls, pull-overs, and beginning handstands, and cartwheels, and establishing confidence on beam.
Beginner 2 Gymnastics is for older students (9+). We will focus on handstands and cartwheels, pull-overs and back hip circles, basic vaulting, and establishing confidence on beam.
