Gymnastics Program

Introducing the sport of gymnastics to the youth of our community. Here at the Y our coaches are dedicated to instilling crucial skills for success amongst our gymnasts. The Metrowest YMCA offers classes from 2-14, starting with parent & me classes to independent classes. We pride ourselves on teaching our gymnasts to develop balance and coordination, plus the confidence that’s won as a child takes on new challenges.

The Metrowest YMCA GymKats 

The GymKats Gymnastics Team trains and competes under the curriculums and guidelines of the USA Gymnastics Program (USAG). The Junior Olympic Program (JO) consists of levels 3-10 and the GymKats Gymnastics Team offers levels 3-5. Each level contains more difficulty and as gymnasts advance through the levels strength, flexibility, coordination and endurance are expected to increase. Levels 3-5 are referred to as compulsories, where every gymnast learns the same routine on each event. Our dedicated coaches work vigorously with our team to challenge, support, and encourage their growing interest in the sport of gymnastics. Tryouts for our GymKats happen in the early summer months, practices run during the summer and throughout the academic year. Competition season runs from September into May.
