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.
