Gymnastics

At the Y, we emphasize individual development and progress through skill-based curriculum, a caring environment, and attentive instructors. Your kids will not only learn skills, but also build self-confidence and character. 

If you have any questions or would like more information about our gymnastics or cheer programs, please contact Shelby Shoemaker by phone at (660) 258-2388 or by email at shelby@ncmymca.org.

We do not allow parents or spectators to watch practice for the safety and concentration of your child in all classes excluding Adaptive, Roly Poly, and Beginner Level 1 classes.
