Royals Team & PreTeam

The Keene Family YMCA is home to the Royals Gymnastics Team. The team and pre-team options offer gymnasts the opportunity to compete against other teams throughout the season at a variety of meets. Being a member of the team is a commitment for both the gymnast and their parents. It is a commitment of time, effort, and energy…but so worth it. Our competitive gymnastics program offers a great opportunity to push your limits.

To be a member of either team, gymnasts must be Keene Family YMCA members.
