Register Gymnastics Schedules 

The KidSpirit Gymnastics Program has been a integral part of KidSpirit since the program was introduced in the 1960s. Our gymnastics program builds the flexibility, balance, and strength that participants can use in any sport – not just gymnastics! Participants learn about perserverance, patience, trusting others, managing risk, and countless other life skills!

  • KidSpirit takes pride in our gymnastics classes, instructors, and facility at OSU. Classes are offered to youth as young as 24 months up to 18 years old. KidSpirit offers a variety of classes for your child's needs. Please read the class descriptions below.

Our recreational gymnastics program builds confidence in its participants in an encouraging, safe, and non-competitive environment. Our recreational gymnasts learn to love the sport of gymnastics and watch their skills progress at their own paces. Recreational Gymnastics classes serve everyone from parent and child classes through level four of the gymnastics progression. Classes are offered Monday through Saturday!

 

Exhibition Registration is OPEN!

The KidSpirit Gymnastics Exhibition is an annual performance that includes a group performance with dance choreography and gymnastics skills performed on the gymnastics floor prior to an OSU Women’s Gymnastics meet. This year's meet will be against UCLA on Saturday, February 2nd, 2019.
