Pre-School Gymnastics:

Let's Get Rolling (Ages 18 months to 3 years old)

This class will teach the children the basic structure of classes as our instructors take them to uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise. Classes are 30 minutes.


Progressive Classes:

The Fond du Lac Family YMCA Progressive Gymnastics Lessons Program is designed for children to learn at their own pace. Advancing to the next level is dependent on the child’s completion of required skills. All new entry level gymnasts must start at Rollers I - 6 years and over.
