Gymnastics at the YMCA of Frederick County

Gymnastics programs at the YMCA are fun and dedicated to helping every child reach their fullest potential

The Y offers a fun gymnastics program dedicated to helping every child reach their fullest potential. We believe gymnastics training provides an excellent foundation in physical fitness, emphasizing the development of strength, flexibility and coordination.

Regardless of their physical abilities, all children benefit from gymnastics activities. Therefore, we strive to create a safe and fun environment that develops, in each student, self-discipline, self-confidence and enthusiasm as well as gymnastics skills.
