Women's Intro Competitive Artistic Gymnastics
Interested in joining our highly successful Competitive Programs? Start at the beginning with our Intro Competitive Programs aimed at athletes ages 5 to 8 to build a strong base that will last throughout their gymnastics career. Programs run from July to June (some summer training required in order to continue building a strong base). Commitment for the full year is expected as the athlete is introduced to the yearly schedule of skill building and
testing competitions to assess learning.
The Intro Competitive Athlete should be prepared to attend 2 to 4 testing events as part of the program curriculum, depending on age and level.
