Competitive Gymnastics

The mission of the Pharr Gymnastics Competition Team is to develop happy, healthy, and confident individuals. We strive to find a balance for our athletes that will allow them to be challenged at their current ability level while experiencing both personal and team success. It is our goal that each child develops to the best gymnast that they can be while learning both valuable gymnastics and life lessons.

This program will allow your child to develop her confidence, poise, individuality, mental and physical strength, determination, dedication, and self-respect.

Our Competitive Team is a year-round team for the skilled athlete looking for a competitive experience. Female gymnasts compete in USA Gymnastics routines and follow Junior Olympic rules and regulations against other YMCAs at state, regional, and national levels. We emphasize positive coaching, technical skill instruction, goal setting, work ethic, and team building.
