The Y Preschool Gymnastics Program
The Y preschool gymnastics program allows boys and girls ages 1-6 years to experience the world of gymnastics. This progressive program will allow children to begin gymnastics classes with a parent in our Me and My Tumbler class (ages 1-3). Help children learn the basics of gymnastics independently in our Tumble Weeds class (ages 3-4). Develop skills and confidence in our Tiny Tumbler program (ages 4-5). Excel in our more advanced classes in the Rising Stars (ages 5-6). Our goal is that children and their parents have a fun, positive, and exciting experience in our preschool gymnastics programs at the Middleboro YMCA.
The Y Youth Gymnastics Programs (K–8th Grade & up)
The Y youth gymnastics program is created to be both recreational and instructional and to incorporate age-appropriate conditioning for the strength and flexibility needed for the sport. Gymnasts follow specific progressions and guidelines for proper skill development on each of the Olympic events. Participation helps develop agility, strength, balance and flexibility. For gymnasts safety appropriate gymnastics attire is required.
