YMCA youth sports encourage and promote healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition rather than rivalry, the value of participation over winning, team-building as well as individual development, a positive self-image and mutual respect for others. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are preparing to offer a modified version of youth sports to ensure the safety of our participants, staff and families. Protocols, schedules, programming and procedures are being adjusted, and additional precautionary measures will be taken to uphold the highest possible standard of hygiene and sanitation practices.
- All GYMNASTICS PROGRAMS take place at our Port Edwards location.
- We will be offering a modified youth summer program.
- We will be limiting class sizes to a maximum of 10 participants per class.
- We will only allow one parent/adult per child into the building for the class.
- Social distancing of 6ft separation whenever possible will be enforced for all youth sports programming.
- As guidelines change, we will adapt and inform you as much as we can on our website and facebook page <click here>.

ROLLERS | BASIC
Participation is designed to enhance strength, balance and flexibility on all gymnastic equipment. Both the Rollers and Cartwheelers gymnastics classes are recreational in nature for our beginner to intermediate level students. These classes are the first skills-based classes offered to our students. The students will learn basic skills on all of the competitive gymnastics events as well as our trampoline. This class will improve most aspects of fitness as well. We follow USA Gymnastics guidelines for all of our skill-based classes.
CARTWHEELERS | INTERMEDIATE
This class is designed for those eager to develop their skills and continue in gymnastics to a more advanced level. Students participate in a structured warm-up period at the start of each class to build strength, flexibility and a solid foundation. Weekly event rotations continue to give students the chance to practice and learn newer and more progressive skills on each event. All instruction is progressive for safety.
AERIALS PRE-TEAM | ADVANCED
Advanced level gymnastics that focuses on skill development, conditioning and flexibility in a fun, supportive environment. In the advance gymnastics classes, students participate in a structured warm-up period at the start of each class to build strength, flexibility and a solid foundation.

New this year, we are establishing a new group of pre-team gymnasts. Our pre-teamers are gymnasts who will have worked very hard in our recreational classes throughout the previous year. Pre-team gymnasts come to class once a week, work more seriously on skill perfection than in our recreational program, and spend considerable time improving strength and flexibility.
Hour long lessons are available with a gymnastics instructor. Call 715.818.9622 to set up a time that is convenient for you.
