Recreational

Everyone can find something meaningful and beneficial in the sport of gymnastics, regardless of age, athletic ability, or the ambitiousness of their goals. Gymnastics can be enjoyed by all!

As children acquire the basics of recreational gymnastics, improvements may be seen in strength, balance, agility, flexibility and overall body awareness. Gymnasts learn to move safely, rotate safely, and jump and land safely. The development of these fundamental movements and sport skills is known as becoming physically literate. It is believed that the acquisition of physical literacy will benefit individuals for their entire lives.

Whether you are a beginner, or returning for the fun and fitness offered in our recreational gymnastics programs, Gymnastics Energy provides classes suitable for all ages and levels. Please see our current schedule for details and class times. We look forward to you having you join us.

  • Fall (September to December)- registration begins first week of August
  • Winter (January to April) – registration begins first week of December
  • Spring (May & June) – registration begins first week of April
  • Summer (July & August) – registration begins first week of June
