Gymnastics

Pinnacle offers an array of gymnastic classes for Beginner to Advanced.  Coaches will work to create a basic knowledge of the gym, gym safety and skills. Classes are separated by gender and age to create small, focused classes where athletes can learn at their own pace and level. Once a Coach feels like an athlete has grasped the skills of their current level they will recommend the student move up. Should an athlete excel quickly and show natural talent, they may be asked to try out for our competitive team - however, most students will advance at a steady pace and may take months to years to advance to team level.
