Gymnastics & Ninja Challenge

At the heart of our Ashland YMCA Gymnastics program is the spirit of community. As we practice cartwheels and pullovers, we also practice kindness and respect. Lifelong friendships are forged, and self esteem is built one handstand at a time.

This program is designed to introduce our Y youth to the fundamentals of gymnastics in a safe, supportive, and engaging environment. We aim to foster physical coordination, confidence, and social skills.
