Our gymnastics programs begin as early as 12 months old as a parent-child class, and continue through preschool, progressive, and even competitive levels. Some Y’s even offer gymnastics specifically for boys!

Gymnastics offers many positive physical benefits and improves confidence and self-esteem!

In the summer, be sure to check out gymnastics camps offered by some YMCA branches.

Continous Enrollment Gymnastics - New!

Three of our YMCA branches – Mid-County, O'Fallon IL and South County – offer extensive gymnastics programs and began to offer continous enrollment gymnastics in January 2018. After that initial session, future sessions will run on an academic calendar (September-May) and some branches will offer summer programs as well. Payments are made monthly. More information including class schedules may be available on branch pages. Click here for our locations page.

Here are the policies for this program and the authorization form for automatic payments. Please register for these programs at the branch so you can supply payment authorization and work with our welcome specialists for class placement.
