Gymnastics at the Old Town – Orono YMCA teaches children skills, confidence, coordination, flexibility and strength. The Y offers a variety of gymnastics including Preschool, Recreational, Tumbling and a Competitive Gymnastics Team.
All gymnastics classes are taught in a fun, safe environment using progressive skill instruction on all gymnastics equipment. Every class emphasizes balance, strength, coordination along with positive encouragement from our Y teaching staff. Not only do we teach your child the fundamentals of gymnastics, we also focus on the YMCA’s character development traits of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. From walking aged class like Preschool Open Play to our school aged Recreational Classes we’ve got something for everyone.
Gymnasts who are ready to take their skills to the next level will be invited on our competitive gymnastics team where the whole person is developed and competition and winning are kept in healthy perspective. The Old Town – Orono YMCA’s competitive team participates in state, regional, and national gymnastics competitions in the Maine YMCA League as well as the USAG League. Team gymnasts practice all year long with their competition schedule from November – May. Gymnasts practice between 2-4 times per week throughout the year to master their skills during the season as well as learn new ones during the off season.

Private Gymnastics Lessons
Is your child struggling with a specific event or skill? Does your child ask for more time in the gym? We offer private lessons for all skill levels in both gymnastics and tumbling.
Private lessons are a great way for an athlete to get one on one time with a coach and master those tough skills they may be struggling with. It is also a great way to get some extra time in the gym to help the individual keep progressing through our program.
For more information regarding Private Gymnastics Lessons or to schedule a session please email email@example.com today.
