Participation in OGC’s Team is by invitation only and requires a one year commitment. Selection to these levels means a serious commitment to gymnastics, for the athletes as well as their family. First and foremost, we feel gymnastics should be fun! Team gymnastics is more demanding than the average recreational class, but the overall experience should be positive while being competative.
Beginning June 1st OGC’s in house Physical Therapist, Susan Cook, will be examining every team gymnasts on a monthly basis at no additional cost to parents!
Non-OGC gymnasts are welcome to speak with the owner or team director anytime for team placements.
