Keene Family YMCA Gymnastics

MISSION STATEMENT

Through innovative coaching techniques, supportive parental involvement, and the integration of the YMCA core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility, the Keene Family YMCA gymnastics program provides quality, individualized instruction for children and adults. Each participant is given the opportunity to develop physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially through fun, safe, and challenging activities.

PHILOSOPHY

Gymnastics helps children become stronger, more flexible, and helps build endurance, agility, coordination, balance and speed. Gymnastics enables children to excel at many other sports and activities in life. Our program promotes sportsmanship, encouragement, and friendship. Each child’s unique learning style and needs will be respected. All children, regardless of ability, are welcome in our programs. There is a program for everyone here at the Y.

GOALS

  • To promote a fun, exciting, long term experience to each and every gymnast.
  • To promote independence and self-discipline through challenging activities.
  • To promote team spirit through cooperative team building techniques.
  • To guide each gymnast in developing his or her own immediate, short-term and long-term goals.

Want to work on skills outside of structured class times, but still under the supervision of  Y Gymnastics Staff? Do your little ones need some time to both socialize and work on their spatial and motor skills? Open Gymnastics is a great way to both work on select elements, and keep kids active, while in a fun and safe environment.
