Recreational and Competitive Gymnastics Club

boys and girls welcome


Our Vision is to bring gymnastics to all members of the community in a well-organized gym with state-of-the-art gymnastics equipment. We support gymnasts in aspiring to and becoming the best they can be, physically, mentally and emotionally.

We use gymnastics as a medium for physical fitness and strive to create an environment where they are shown respect, feel safe, are challenged physically and develop ownership of physical skills. This approach is empowering and enables our gymnasts to explore beyond their normal comfort level, resulting in independent, confident and self-assured young people.

“Some of the world’s greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible.” – Doug Larson
