The Meadville Family YMCA offers gymnastic instruction for children beginning at one years of age. Instruction is designed to be safe, educational, and fun. All children are encouraged and expected to participate to their fullest potential.

Which class is right for my child? If you’re a curious parent our gymnastic instructors will assess the skills of individual gymnasts to determine which class is appropriate for their level. Our Gymnastics Center is located on the third floor of the Bill Lawrence Fitness Building at 940 Park Avenue in Meadville!
