About our Club

Welcome to the Elmira Gymnastics Club. We are a gymnastics club and fitness center with over 30 years of service in the Elmira, New York area in the famous Finger Lakes Region of New York State.

The Elmira Gymnastics Club Program

The Elmira Gymnastics Club offers a developmental program of gymnastics for boys and girls starting at 8 months of age. Our curriculum includes instruction in all Men's and Women's Olympic events for boys and girls of all abilities. While gaining strength, flexibility, coordination and agility, girls will learn skills on floor exercise, vault, balance beam, uneven bars and trampoline, while boys receive instruction on floor exercise, vault, trampoline, pommel horse, horizontal bar, rings and parallel bars.

The Elmira Gymnastics Club guarantees a quality program of gymnastics that is built upon the principle that every individual's progress is important. Regardless of age or level of ability, great care is taken to assure that optimum learning conditions prevail. Teacher-pupil ratios are low -- never exceeding 1 to 8, and most often less. Classes are small and equipment is plentiful. Students progress rapidly through a well-developed sequential program. Objective measures are utilized for assessing each gymnast's progress and dividing them into classes by ability.

Physical fitness, the ability of an individual to effectively and efficiently use their body, is a major value of gymnastics. The development of a strong, flexible body is an asset to every young person. Self-confidence, poise and grace are but a few of the desired outcomes of the Elmira Gymnastics program.

We welcome your visit to our website and look forward to seeing you soon at the Club.
