Who is teaching my child?

When we look for new staff members and gymnastics teachers, we first look for people who truly love children. We can teach the skills and supply the technical information, but we can’t teach people to genuinely love children and love to teach children. We hold monthly in-house training sessions for all staff members. Training topics range from class organization to teaching advanced skills. We also send staff to national-level training annually or bring in national-level trainers to train our staff in-house.

Our senior Gymnastics staff members are required to have:

  • a current safety certification in Gymnastics Coaching,
  • passed a national background check
  • current Safesport certification.

Can I watch my child?

Absolutely! All activities can be viewed from our main lobby area or from the upstairs observation area.

Is my child safe while in class?

Safety is our #1 priority at WVTG. Of course, all activities involving height and motion involve a risk of injury. To help minimize the risk to your child, all of our instructors are trained in gymnastics safety, basic first aid, and class discipline techniques.

Will my child have fun in class?

Yes. Although we do have competitive programs in gymnastics and tumbling & trampoline for the more serious students, our goal is not to make every child the next Olympic gold medalist.

We strive to give every student the essential life skills necessary to succeed in whatever they choose to do in their lives. We aim to develop your child’s sense of self-discipline and self-respect, teamwork, and creativity, all while helping them to become physically fit and recognize the importance of exercise in their lives. We do all this while making sure every child has a great time!

Class Interruption

WVTG reserves the right to remove a child from class if they're disruptive to the point that the instructor cannot teach the class effectively.

Level of Difficulty

WVTG accommodates all skill levels: from the recreational student to the aspirational competitor to the serious athlete looking for scholarship possibilities.

Apparel
     We encourage girls to wear a leotard but athletic shorts and a t-shirt is fine. ABSOLUTELY NO JEWELRY ALLOWEDBoys should wear shorts and a t-shirt and socks.  Long hair should be pulled back from the face. If not appropriately dressed, the gymnast may be restricted from some or all activity. Wabash Valley Tumbling & Gymnastics pro-shop has an extensive line of gymnastics clothing, which may be purchased for class or personal use.
