Welcome to the YMCA of Centre County Bellefonte Branch Gymnastics Team. Our team is a USAG competitive program for girls ages 5-18 and composed of Pre-Team, levels 2, 3, and XCEL.
Gymnastics team participation not only allows gymnastics ability to improve, but also instills self-esteem, leadership, sportsmanship, discipline, and respect. Our goal is to provide every gymnast a safe and fun learning experience, motivating them to excel to their highest individual potential. We are committed to providing a rewarding gymnastics experience through quality instruction and encouragement while instilling the YMCA core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. We hope to produce not only fantastic and confident gymnasts, but also outstanding young role models.
Our team attends USAG sanctioned competitions throughout Pennsylvania. Those that achieve the required qualifying score will attend the USA Gymnastics Pennsylvania State Championship Competition. Team members must be Y members and all practices are held at the YMCA of Centre County Bellefonte branch. Practice times vary based on individual levels.
Team is invitation only, but if you are interested in joining our competitive program, would like your child evaluated, or would like more information contact Steve Greecher at email@example.com or 814-355-5551
