For girls planning on competing in the 2021-2022 season.
The Gems Gymnastics Team offers talented young woman a chance to compete in gymnastics meets at the state and national level. Gymnasts in Levels 1 – 10 plus Xcel can join team. The competitive season runs October – March, with approximately 10 meets on the schedule. Gymnasts compete against other Y’s from the state of Wisconsin at these meets.
The Green County Family YMCA’s approach to teaching gymnastics is unique and works to build self-esteem and confidence by providing successful experiences for each gymnast. Gymnastics offers many physical, cognitive and psychological benefits. Skills children gain from participation in gymnastics will continue benefiting them throughout their lives.
Every gymnast is tested throughout each session to ensure they are placed in the class that will be the best fit for them. All gymnasts progress at different rates. If you have any questions regarding your child’s placement, please contact our Gymnastics Director, Dawn Lederman.
