Aerials Pre-Team Gymnastics-Ages 5+

Using the USA-Gymnastics’ Jr. Olympic Program Levels 1 and up, we will focus on developing top quality gymnastic skills while instilling the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.  Our primary goal is to create well rounded individuals through the sport of gymnastics.

The early Pre-Team levels 1 and 2 prepare gymnasts for competitive gymnastics which starts at Level 3.  Pre-Team 1 and Pre-Team 2 meet twice a week and require a greater love and commitment to the sport of gymnastics.  The gymnasts will gain self-confidence, develop a good work ethic, be a part of a tight knit team, and have lots of fun learning the sport of gymnastics.

Pre-Team 1 and Pre-Team 2 do not not compete.  However, they will have the option of participating in a spring Exhibition Meet at our gym.

Proper level placement is required prior to enrollment in Pre-Team 2.  To register for the Pre-Team and Team programs, contact the program director at 218-464-5172.

The “Aerials” are the Duluth YMCA’s competitive gymnastics team that includes USAG Jr. Olympic levels 3 and up.  Gymnasts are placed on team based on skill level determined by USAG.   The Aerials compete with other small clubs throughout the area in a very non-intimidating atmosphere as well as state qualifiers and meets.

Aerials Gymnastics Team is an on-going, year round program.  Proper level placement is required prior to enrollment.  For more information or to register for the Pre-Team and Team programs, contact the program director at 218-464-5172.
