Gem City Start Seasons Strong!

Congratulations to our tumbling team, gymnastics team, and all-star squad on competing in their first competitions of the 2018-2019 season last month!

Each team did an amazing job. Check out the results either here on our blog or on our Facebook page.

Good luck, Lydia!

We’re so excited for Coach Lydia Schrand as she will soon move to Denver to continue her college career at Metropolitan State University.

We’ll miss you so much, Lydia! As an athlete and a coach, we’ve always loved the joy and hard work you bring to the gym.

Two New Programs for Spring: Parkour and Adaptive Gymnastics

Gem City will offer weekly Parkour and Adaptive Gymnastics programs during the Spring 2019 session.

The Intro to Parkour class will be every Sunday from 6-7 p.m., starting on February 3.

Parkour is a one hour class, priced just like all of our other one hour classes. It’s open to adults and anyone ages 7 and up. This price is included in family max/ team family max.

Gem City’s new Adaptive Gymnastics class will be offered for children ages 5-12 with differing abilities or special needs. The focus will be on growth and development in the following areas: gross motor coordination, sensory processing, language concepts, social skills, and being a kid while having fun!

This will be a half-hour class from 3:45-4:15 on Wednesday afternoons when the gym is more quiet. It’ll be priced the same as our other 30 minute classes. Every new athlete gets to attend the first class as a “trial” to make sure they like the class enough to make the full session commitment.
