Our Glider Coaches have the advantage of coaching gymnasts at competition level and can attest that gymnasts are the toughest athletes in the world because they do the impossible! These athletes will compete with grace and athleticism in all four Olympic gymnastics events: Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, and Floor. We believe in making sure that athletes are both physically and mentally prepared to successfully compete at each level. The Glider competitive gymnastics team will travel and compete within the North and South suburbs of Chicago. Competitive gymnastics will teach girls the importance of hard work, ethics, perseverance, goal setting, achievements, teamwork, personal fitness, friendships and life skills that they will take with them far beyond their gymnastics years.
