USAG Junior Olympic Team
The highest level of gymnastics team competition in the country. Our coaching staff is highly committed to helping our gymnasts. We train USAG Teams competing Level 2 through Level 10. Gymnastics is an extraordinary sport that develops flexibility, strength, grace, discipline, control, coordination, goal orientation, confidence, creativity, leadership, a healthy body and positive self-esteem. Through hard work and dedication, gymnasts can improve their abilities and possibly even represent the United States in major competitions. It requires both talent and dedication. Our girls’ teams train between two and five days per week depending on their level. Many of our graduating gymnasts continue to compete in college on scholarships. We now offer TOPS training to those interested in attending TOPS testing.

US Association of Independent Gymnastics Clubs (USIGC)
We also offer a USAIGC team and currently train girls from the Bronze to Gold level. This program operates under the guidelines of USAIGC rules. It is a team designed to allow talented gymnasts who have the ability and determination to compete in the sport of gymnastics, a less intensive training format (in relation to USA Team Gymnastics). The USAIGC team practices are flexible so that the gymnast may have additional time for other activities outside the gym.
Updates: Congratulations girls!
