Welcome to Wildcats Team Information!
The YMCA Wildcats team participates in YMCA competitive gymnastics in the northeast region. We offer non-competitive gymnastics for pre-team, Levels 1 and 2 and Xcel Bronze gymnasts. Our YMCA competitive levels include 3-9 Junior Olympic as well as Xcel Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. Families have the option to participate in USA Gymnastics from Level 4-9 and Trampoline and Tumbling. Team members are accepted by invitation or by evaluation. The competition season runs from November to May. Levels 6-9 and Xcel Platinum and Diamond gymnasts have the option to qualify for the annual YMCA Nationals meet in June. Wildcats team participation is an annual commitment that begins in September.
The Wildcats Gymnastics Team strives to provide quality instruction, individual attention, a safe environment, and program growth. This is achieved by providing innovative coaching techniques, supportive parental involvement, and integration of the YMCA core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. We strive to reflect sportsmanship in our daily activities. Each child is given the opportunity to develop physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially through fun, safe and productive activities. We provide an open line of communication with gymnasts and parents, so please feel free to reach out to us!
