Gymnastics training increases strength and flexibility, enhancing performance and preventing injury in any sport. As well as being a sport itself, gymnastics is often used as cross training for sports like martial arts, swimming, diving, dance, and others.
Whether you train in gymnastics to compete, cross-train for other sports, or just for fun and exercise, the self-discipline, self-confidence, individual responsibility, and sense of teamwork you gain from gymnastics training are positive character skills that carry over into all life endeavors.
YMCA gymnastics classes begin at the preschool level (ages three through five) and progress through youth level classes and on to team competition, depending on skill level and interest.
Open gymnastics time for gymnasts of all ages and abilities wishing to practice in a less structured setting.
Children ages 2 to 4 will be introduced to all gymnastics apparatus in a structured manner. For 2- and 3-year-olds, parents must be present and stay with the child during the class. For 4-year-olds, parent involvement is encouraged but not required.
Budding gymnasts or those with a casual interest in the sport will enjoy this class. Basic gymnastics skills will be taught. For children grades K-6.
Tumbling is the basis of all gymnastics. This class is for gymnasts and cheerleaders of
all abilities. This class will cover tumbling skills,
floor skills, rope, mini-trampoline, spring board,
and hand balancing. No matter what level you are,
we’re sure you will enjoy this class! All ages.

Competitive strokes, endurance, related skills and fun are the focus of our very successful swim team. Although the LRSC have been State Champions for most of the past 20+ seasons, winning is a by-product of our philosophy and approach-not a goal in itself. LRSC strives to offer a fun learning experience where swimmers will thrive.
Follow our 2013 Freedom Tour blogs:
What is “The Theme is Freedom Tour?” It’s a constantly evolving educational journey for 8th grade middle school students designed as an integrated approach to teaching history and contributing effectively as citizens. The program culminates in a 7-day trip in late spring or early summer.
How do students prepare for the trip? Students meet together to learn about the places they will visit and how the history and culture of that place or time impacts our world today. Groups participate in a vision process, learn conflict resolution skills, and discuss expectations and consequences for individual and group behavior.
Where do we go? Plimouth Plantation -- New York City Neighborhoods -- Ellis Island -- Lower East Side Tenement Museum -- Independence Park in Philadelphia -- Amish Country -- Lincoln, Washington, Roosevelt Presidential Memorials and Monuments -- Vietnam, Korean, World War II and Iwo Jima War Memorials -- United States Holocaust Memorial Museum -- Smithsonian -- Gettysburg National Park -- Rockefeller Center -- Ground Zero -- Apollo Theater
Why do we take a trip? More than a class trip and bigger than a history lesson, the program engages students in meaningful activities to build positive social competencies. As democratic ideals continue to take center-stage in international events, we find we have countless teachable moments and a heightened sense of pride in our U.S. history.
Fees - The tour fee is based on the length and extent of the program. The fee covers all prep meetings and materials, transportation by motor coach, meals, hotels, entrance fees and a tour jacket. Financial aid is available through our YMCA assistance program.
