Geneva Gymnastics Academy Preparatory Team Classes

Is your child’s ultimate goal to end up on our GGA Competition Travel Team? Below are classes that gymnasts can progress through to reach the ultimate goal of being on our competitive/feeder travel team. Outside of Level 1 gymnastics, all other classes require a certain skill-set to move onto the next level. Each session is progressive to allow children the opportunity to grow and advance. At the end of each session, our staff will recommend class placement. Please note: each child develops differently in gymnastics; some children will advance more quickly than others. Our staff places all gymnasts where they will be the most successful.
