Flips Gymnastics Program

Our Gymnastics Program at Flips is designed after the USA Gymnastics Program. USA Gymnastics is the top governing body of Gymnastics in our country. Many of the top gymnasts that you know from previous Olympics as well most of our country’s college gymnasts come have come through this program. We feel that this program will help your child best pursue their gymnastic goals.

In addition we host two exhibition competitions each year; one in December and one in May. The skills and routine sets that your daughter will be working on in her classes, will specifically prepare her for this event. Read more about these special events.
