Our Youth Progressive Gymnastics Program is an advancing developmental program. Personal improvement, increased self-confidence and fun are our goals. The YMCA program allows the students to progress at their own rate and work on their individual needs.

The Pre-Team and Competitive Team gymnasts work on compulsory routines and optional routines. The North Suburban YMCA Gymnastics Team travels and competes in the YMCA League and AAU League.
