In the winter of 2014, Prospect Gymnastics began with just one coach and a few students in the back of a music studio. That summer, we opened our own gymnastics facility at 1023 Church Avenue offering gymnastics classes, birthday parties, team gymnastics, camp, and toddler open play. Prospect Gymnastics quickly evolved into a collaborative community where we do our best to serve our neighborhood and promote healthy minds and bodies. Our motto is “Build Skills. Gain Confidence. Have Fun.” This reflects our belief that every time we raise an individual child up, we are building a stronger, more connected community.
What makes us special?
Our curriculum is unmatched. We provide step-by-step drills that aid children in physically recognizing and remembering skills, even in adulthood. Have you ever wondered why you never had to relearn how to ride a bike? It’s because of muscle memory. Here at Prospect Gymnastics we work hard on connecting the dots and creating long-lasting results.
Additionally, our facility is clean, we have wonderful, well-trained staff, love kids, and strive to make a difference every day.
Gymnastics is a great sport to engage all types of children. It can develop strength, agility, flexibility, and/or coordination, depending on the apparatus. Practicing skills on different apparatus means that each child has multiple opportunities to identify their own strengths and areas for growth. The variety of movements and disciplines keeps children happy and physically fit.
Our coaches are carefully selected and trained. Here at Prospect Gymnastics, our coaches go through extensive training of positive reinforcement techniques and methods to create a positive and healthy environment for children to learn and enjoy the sport, even when it becomes challenging. Our gymnastics coaches are USA Gymnastics-certified, sports safety-certified, CPR/ First Aid-certified, and background-checked.
We Believe in…
• Building Skills: Gaining an early movement foundation helps children apply gymnastics methods outside of the gym into life situations where they can prevent an injury, whether it is on the playground or in other sports.
• Gaining Confidence: Accomplishing skills through hard work and taking risks fosters a “can do” attitude in children.
• Having Fun: Learning how to enjoy physical fitness, especially at a young age, promotes a healthy lifestyle in the future.
