Gymnastics Classes

The Gymnastics facility is located at 4472 Valnorth Dr, Valdosta, GA  31602 off of exit 22.

Our Valdosta YMCA has an outstanding recreational program as well as a competitive gymnastics team! The recreational Gymnastics program offers an opportunity for youngsters of all ages and abilities a chance to be their best while learning self discipline and having fun.

Our 14,000 square foot Air conditioned facility includes a full viewing spectator area and is fully equipped for children of all ability levels.

Athletes are split by age and level into small groups  6:1. Classes are not free play.  Athletes will rotate to each event and focus on skills and drills using our progressive skill chart system based on the USA Gymnastics guidelines.  Each child is continually evaluated and as they master skills they move up within the program.

Pre-school – ages 3-4 – (Co-ed)  Experience gymnastics through obstacle course activities on floor, uneven parallel bars, balance beams, trampoline and pit.

Girls Level 1 – ages 5 – 15 – Learn the basics of gymnastics on Vault, bars, beam and floor, trampoline and pit.

Boys – ages 5 – 12 – Learn the basics of gymnastics on Vault, p-bars, high bar, mushroom, pommel horse, rings, floor, trampoline and pit.

Girls Level 2 – 4:  ages 5 – 15:  MUST  have prior approval to register at these levels using the current  Valdosta YMCA Gymnastics  Skill chart system.

Although the majority of our program athletes participate in the recreational program, the YMCA also offers a Gymnastics Team.   The team provides participants with the opportunity to engage in gymnastics at a competitive level. Competition is exciting and challenges the gymnast physically, mentally, and emotionally. Participation on the competitive team level is determined by the coach and depends on the skill level of the gymnast and their willingness and desire to train.

The YMCA offers a variety of special events including:  Friday Frolic, Kids Night Out,  Parties, Field Trips, Summer and Holiday Camps.
