SA Premier Gymnastics

Gymnastics is one of our longest standing programs within Kinetic Kids!  Within this division, our gymnasts will learn routines and compete on all 4 events: vault, beam, bars, and floor.  Depending upon skill level, gymnasts will participate in the SA Premier team or the Developmental team.  The teams practice weekly throughout the year to progress skills and routine levels.  The SA Premier team will prepare for local and out-of-state competitions, while the Developmental team will show off their skills in one local meet.  Learn more about scholarships here.
