Gymnasts who have advanced through our progressive gymnastics classes and are ready to commit to a higher level of gymnastics can become a part of our Turners competitive team. Our competition season begins in September and concludes with state in March. Spring and summer sessions are optional for our families, but highly encouraged. Gymnasts will compete against other YMCAs around the state to have the ultimate experience.
Participants are invited to be on the team through our progressive gymnastics classes or by individual evaluations. For more information, contact Sam Smazal, Gymnastics Coordinator, at smazal@swcymca.org.
