Good Morning Nature Preschool Families! Due to a power outage at the South Shore Natural Science Center, our Nature Center Preschool morning session for today, 9/30, is cancelled.

Discover the Gymnast Within

At South Shore YMCA Gymnastics, kids learn to tumble, run, jump and twist their way from basics on vault, bars, beam and floor, to intermediate and advanced skill development. With core values of honesty, respect and responsibility, the Y offers classes, programs, teams and private lessons for toddlers, kindergartners, school-aged children, and competitive gymnasts. Our programs are designed to let gymnasts learn, have fun and progress at their own pace with weekly sessions.

State-Of-The-Art Gymnastics Center

Located just around the corner from the Emilson Y on Route 53 at 1075 Washington Street in Hanover, MA, our South Shore YMCA Gymnastics Center is designed with the latest equipment for beginners to advanced gymnasts.

  • Spacious balance beam area with high and low training beams[LD26]
  • Uneven bar training areas with full sets, strap-bar, single rail with pit and mat landings
  • Regulation-sized floor area
  • Vault area with table
  • Tumble track area and spring floor with resi mat and foam pit landing areas.

While your gymnast is in class, younger siblings may enjoy KidZone family time at the adjacent SSYMCA Early Learning Center. Come and play!

Team Programs

We have competing options for team gymnasts in both USA program and YMCA programs. Our Synergy Gymnastics Team is available by invitation or tryout for all skill levels, from non-competitive beginners to national skill levels such as Competitive USA gymnastics teams, Excel levels Bronze-Platinum, and JO levels 2-8. Team participants must be under a current YMCA membership.

Private Lessons – Ages 5-17

For gymnasts looking to perfect a certain skill, or need extra help learning a routine, the Y offers Private and Semi-Private lessons in 30-minute and 60-minute intervals.

Private Groups

Gymnastics or Tumbling Classes can be built for groups of 4 or more based on space and coach availability.
