The Buckeye Valley Family YMCA offers a full gymnastics curriculum. Each level is designed to advance gymnasts in a safe, consistent and productive manner teaching safety awareness, body awareness, values and skill instruction.
Buckeye Valley Family YMCA gymnastics programs are designed to provide a safe, nurturing environment for children and youth to develop gymnastics skills as well as the four YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. We teach kids to tumble, run, jump, balance and flip in our gymnastics programs.
From one year of age and up, kids learn movement skills, fine and gross motor skills, tumbling skills 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.
Preschool gymnastics is for children ages 12 months through 5 years of age. These programs provide children a fun way to learn about body movement while gaining increased motor skills, strength and develop social interaction skills.
Team Preparation Gymnastics
This program is designed for gymnasts of all ages who possess the desire and ability to compete. These classes are by Coach Recommendation. The gymnast must perform certain skills to qualify for each of these levels. Teams are grouped according to skill level, not by age. The gymnast will learn routines for all four/six competitive events. They will compete in league meets, USAG sanctioned meets, State, Regional and National Level Championships.

Our class for school age children with special needs will introduce your child to the world of gymnastics in a structured and safe environment. The emphasis of this class is on motor skill development, body awareness, eye-hand coordination, building confidence and social skills while exploring basic gymnastics.
Progressive Youth Gymnastics
Youth Progressive Gymnastics program is for boys and girls ages 5 and up. The Buckeye Valley Family YMCA Gymnastics Program follows the guidelines of the National YMCA Progressive Gymnastics program and the USA Junior Olympic Gymnastics Program. Gymnastics is a sport that takes time to develop and will require time and experience along with practice to accomplish the skills necessary to advance through the program. We work to develop children's coordination, balance, strength, flexibility, and most importantly self-esteem. We focus on safety, encouraging kids to do their best, and to believe in themselves while instilling the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
