Welcome To GymCats Gymnastics

GymCats Gymnastics was founded over 30 years ago with the main goals of creating athletes as well as the foundations for them to succeed both in and out of sports. We start our classes as young as 20 months and continue to challenge them well into their teens. GymCats Gymnastics is the most modern fully equipped facility in Southern New York State. It is centrally located in Yonkers, Hastings and Dobbs Ferry areas. Each and every one of our classes works to improve a student’s motor skills, body and spatial awareness, lower body strength, upper body strength, as well as challenging their minds through various drills. Our goal at GymCats is to build a physical and mental foundation for all sports and to promote athleticism and good health through participation in gymnastics.

Class Types

Tiny Cats

This program is divided into 2 separate groups: Parent & Me and 3+4 Year Olds.

1) Parent & Me- 35 minute class

An instructional class offered for children of 20 months – 35 months. (A care giving adult must be present and physically able to participate with child.)

Children will engage on all of our age appropriate equipment alongside a certified instructor.

They will learn foundational gymnastics skills, as well as gross motor skills.

Children will also make use of our foam-filled pit, Tumbl Trak®, and in-ground trampoline.

2) 3 & 4 Year Old Gymnastics- 40 minute class

Children attend class with their instructor. (Parents will wait in the waiting area.)

Teacher child ratio is low- 6 students to 1 teacher.

These classes feature basic movement education based upon motor learning principles and include upper and lower body large muscle development, basic coordination skills, beginner gymnastics skills, bar and vaulting skills, as well as body and spatial awareness.

The children are also instructed on the trampoline and Tumbl-Trak® and have the use of our foam-filled pit.

We focus on personal best with this age group.

Little Cats- Ages 5-6 1/2, 50 minute class

All of our classes are co-ed!

No experience is necessary to enter this class.

This class is the beginning of a great foundation for achieving excellence in any future sports. Our program emphasizes safety and skill progression through basic drill skills and apparatus training.

All groups will start with an active dynamic warm up that gets the body ready for physical activity.

Both girls and boys will train skills on uneven bars, balance beam, floor exercise and vault.

All Little Cat classes will also use the trampolines, foam-filled pit, and climbing apparatus as training tools.


Big Cats- Ages 6 1/2-12, 1 hour and 10 minute class

There is no prior gymnastics experience necessary to enroll in this class.

Each Big Cat class is typically grouped within a year and half age range.

For example: 6 1/2–8 years, 9–10 1/2 years, etc.

Girls and Boys will train skills and routines on the appropriate apparatus.

Although a beginner program, we will focus on technique, form, and proper execution of each gymnastic skill learned.

Our goal is for children to build the necessary confidence and self-esteem needed to perform such skills, as well as succeed in any future activities.

All Big Cat classes will also use the trampolines, foam-filled pit, and climbing apparatus as training tools as well as the main 4 Olympic events (vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise).


Super Cats (Invitation Only)- Ages 6 1/2-13, 1 hour and 10 minute class

This class is by coach’s invitation or evaluation only. 

Within this advanced recreational class, there is a greater emphasis on developing strength and flexibility, as well as form and technique.

From this program, girls and boys will be able to advance to our Pre Team.

All Super Cats classes will also use the trampolines, foam-filled pit, and climbing apparatus as training tools as well as the main 4 Olympic events (vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise).


Pre Team (Invitation Only)- Ages 7-14, 1 hour and 10 minute class

This class is by coach’s invitation or evaluation only.

Our goal for our Pre Team students is to get them ready to join our Advanced Gymnastics Program (Team). This class is much more detail oriented and designed to prepare the students to have a solid foundation to begin their team career on.

Our curriculum is designed to prepare our students to progress to our team program.

All Pre Team classes will also use the trampolines, foam-filled pit, and climbing apparatus as training tools as well as the main 4 Olympic events (vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise).

Advanced Team Program

Our team is designed with our most advanced athletes in mind. Team practices are held on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 6:00-8:00pm based on availability. Our students attend one or two nights per week depending on their other activities. We have both non-competitive and competitive teams within our advanced gymnastics program. New athletes will be allowed to join the competitive team at management’s discretion and through evaluation.

Non-Competitive/In-House Program

Our non-competitive athletes may attend practice one or two nights per week. Each night, they will start with a group warm up and then train on each of the four Olympic Women’s events. In addition to the four events, they will use our foam filled pit, TumblTrak, in ground trampoline and climbing rope to help develop strength and improve their skills. We will have 2 in-house Intrasquad Competitions (1 in January and 1 in June) where our non-competitive team members will have the chance to showcase their skills to a judge and receive awards for their efforts. They will not be competing against each other; this is focused on personal best!

Competitive Program

Our competitive team follows USAG Xcel. The Xcel program requires less training hours (though we still ask competitive athletes to train multiple times per week). This makes Xcel a great choice for our gymnasts since a majority of them participate in other activities throughout their competitive season! We will create fun, progressive yet practical routines for our levels with slight additions based on their individual needs. They even get fun floor music! Our competitive athletes MUST attend practice twice a week. They may be instructed on which days to attend in order to maximize practice productivity. They will start with a group warm up followed by rotations on each of the four Olympic Women's events. In addition to the four events, they will use our foam filled pit, TumblTrak, in ground Trampoline and climbing rope to help develop strength and improve their skills as needed.

If you are interested in our team program, please email Rachael at info@gymcats.net or call (914) 965-7676. All new team members must schedule a private lesson evaluation prior to joining the program.

A: All registrations must be done online: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER! Once you create your online account, you will choose whichever season you are interested in signing up for. All of the classes that are available to still enroll in will be green. If a class is red, that means it is full but you can add yourself to the waitlist for any closed class.

Q: What if I sign up in the middle of a semester?
A: We have open enrollment based on availability. The system will automatically prorate the cost for you from the time that you sign up!

A: Your child will attend class once a week. You will pick ONE day and time and come that same day and time every week!

Q: What happens if we need to miss a class?
A: When a class is missed, there is an option for a make-up class. Each student is allotted 2 make-up classes per semester. Make-ups are based on OUR availability and are required to be scheduled in advance. The make-up classes will not roll over to a new semester.

Q: What should my child wear?
A: Girls should wear a leotard & be barefoot (non-slip socks are permitted). No leotards with skirts are permitted to be worn during gymnastics. Shorts/leggings may be worn over leotards. Hair must be secured and no jewelry (post earrings are allowed). Boys should wear close fitted gym shorts or pants, a close fitted T-shirt, and be bare foot (non-slip socks are permitted). Please see our Dress Code section for more details!

Q: Are parents allowed to stay and watch the class?
A: Yes! We have a waiting area downstairs that has a clear window looking out into the class area. We also have a bridge that looks out over the top of the class area. Parents are allowed to watch from either of the 2 waiting areas! Parents of children in our Tiny Cats classes are encouraged to stay in the downstairs waiting area

A: We open registration for our current students first and provide them with the password. Registration for new students will become available later on and the password requirement will be taken off.

Q: Can my child be put in a group with their friend(s)?
A: Absolutely! The only way we can guarantee that your child will be placed in the same group with their friend(s) is if you email us at info@gymcats.net prior to the start of the class that you are requesting for them to be together. If you tell us when you arrive for classes, there is no guarantee that we will be able to group them together.

Q: What will my child be learning in class?
A: We have a curriculum that all of our teachers follow for all of our classes. The curriculum changes every 2 weeks. The curriculum is designed to be progressional and prepare our students to eventually be ready for our team program.

Q: Can my child be in a more advanced class?
A: Super Cats, Pre Team, and Team are the more advanced programs that we offer. All of these programs are by invitation only or evaluation based. If your child's teacher feels that they are ready to move up, they will let the office know and we will reach out to you! If you feel that your child is ready to move up and you have not heard anything, you can stop by the office and set up a private lesson evaluation.
