Competitive Team Gymnastics
The competitive program is a year round program that focuses on quality competitive training, friendship, good sportsmanship, dedication and fun. Girls on our team begin competing at level 2 and continue competing through level 10. The boy's team competes through level 6. The team program competes in AAU, USAG and YMCA leagues. Competitions are primarily in the southeastern states, but we do compete nationally. All team athletes are coached by certified USAG professional members. For more information, please contact the Head Team Coach or the Gymnastics Director.
