Gymnastics Team

Gymnasts on Pre-Team are already skilled in many areas of gymnastics and their goal is to join the gymnastics team. Coaches start to introduce the gymnasts to some of the demands and requirements of team, as well as new and more advanced skills. While Pre-Team is not competition driven, gymnasts have the opportunity to learn routines and actually compete!

  • Day/time: Monday and Wednesday 6:30 - 8:00 pm
  • Monthly fee: $30

The gymnasts on the Meriden YMCA Gymnastics Team, Shooting Stars, compete USA Junior Olympic Levels 3-10 and ALL Xcel Levels at YMCA meets. Our gymnasts range in age from 7 years old to Masters Gymnasts. Coaches Mandy Makein and Tom Puddicombe focus on the gymnasts mastering all areas of gymnastics with performance based training, as well as safety, education, integrity, honesty, caring, respect and responsibility.
