About the Developmental Gymnastics YMCA Programs
Team Developmental (Invite only program for girls)
This is an invite-only program that requires a Darien YMCA membership as well as a year-round commitment (We would like a minimum of 50% attendance expected in the summer either registered for a 4-week session of Team Developmental or attending gymnastics camp). This program meets twice a week for an hour each time, to help develop a more advanced skill-base. Along with advanced skills taught on all four events, there is a strong emphasis on strength building, conditioning, and flexibility.
Level 2 (Invite only program for girls)
Like the Team Developmental Program, this is an invite-only and a year-round commitment is vital in preparation for one of our team programs and gymnastics progression. This program meets twice a week for 90 minutes and builds upon the gymnastics foundation they learned in the Tumble Bees, Progressive, and Team Developmental Programs with a strong fucus on strength and flexibility training. The goal is to move into one of our team programs once the coaches feel the gymnast has mastered the skills and training needed and prepared to compete.

A gymnastics assessment is a great way for parents and instructors to understand a child's current gymnastics ability so we can place them in the proper program. This will lead to a more positive experience for the child and create a safe, comfortable environment where the gymnast can learn, grow and thrive.
If you would like an assessment, please complete the questionnaire below. You will be contacted within 1 week to confirm a day and time for your child's assessment.
