The JCC gymnastics school offers a comprehensive regimen of gymnastics instruction from beginners to Level 7 advanced gymnasts. Coach Sherri Lamanna works with students to develop agility, flexibility, and self-confidence. Placement is based on skill, not age. For those little gymnasts not quite ready for a children’s gymnastics class, the JCC offers preschool gymnastics classes specially designed for three- to five-year olds.
Students start their gymnastics classes as a beginner which has three different levels. There are also pre-team levels available, level 3 and level 4. Upon mastering skills at the pre-team level, gymnasts will be placed in team levels which are levels five through seven. Team level gymnasts compete in local non sanctioned meets. Past classes have traveled to Cortland and Auburn to compete in invitational meets. The JCC gymnastics programs focus on fun while developing essential competition skills.
Among the highly specialized equipment available at the JCC, the gymnastics department has recently acquired a new tumble track for tumbling.
Gymnastics classes at the JCC are convenient for parents as well. Bussing is available from some city schools, select private schools, and all public schools within the Jamesville-Dewitt school district.
Coach Lamanna’s experience and instruction will make your child’s gymnastics experience an unforgettable one. Classes are structured according to health and safety guidelines and level placement is based on skill, not age.
