Gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive lifestyle exercise programs by incorporating strength, flexibility, speed, balance, coordination, power and discipline. Your child can develop sport-specific skills in an environment that focuses on teamwork, sportsmanship, caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Our well-trained instructors, coaches and directors will lead your child through the steps from the toddler exploration stage to the complex skills needed to compete, not forgetting to have fun along the way!

Parent-guided gymnastics class focuses on development of basic gymnastics skills, somersaults, swinging and balancing while emphasizing the importance of toddler socialization.

This is a one hour class for children 6 and up wishing to get stronger and learn the basics of tumbling on a spring floor. This class will focus on skills such as handstand, back walkover, cartwheel, and round off.

At our West Washington Branch we offer a progressive-based Gymnastic Program beginning with elementary school through teens. We teach kids to tumble, run, jump, and twist in our gymnastics programs. Participants learn movement, fine motor skills, tumbling and advanced gymnastics elements in our progressive-based classes. Gymnasts who are ready to take their skills to the next level can get involved in competitive gymnastics where the whole person is developed and competition and winning are kept in healthy perspective.
Preteam is for the gymnast who has desire and motivation to work hard and shows potential for competitive gymnastics. It is a bridge from our progressive classes to the competitive team. In this class gymnasts will be learning skills required to join our Dynamites Gymnastics Team with more focus on conditioning and flexibility.
