Santa Rosa Gymnastics takes pride in our positive, non-pressured coaching, and our very supportive atmosphere. Our goal is for each gymnast to attain their full potential and achieve their goals, whatever that my be.

On attaining competitive status:  Our team program is designed especially for the gymnast seeking to compete in the sport of gymnastics and possible continuation onto the college level.


Gymnasts can attain competitive status through our developmental fast tracked program. Gymnasts enter developmental classes,  (Jumping June Bugs, Mini Mites and Level 1); these are 3 specially designed classes which are more strongly structured and team bound. These classes quickly teach the gymnast more advanced techniques and prepare her to enter competition at Level 2.  Gymnasts may continue up through Level 10 by achieving the qualification score and acquiring the required skills.


For that gymnast who is at level B but can not commit to the training or fees on the developmental teams (levels 4-10), we offer our recreational competitive Xcel Team.

Level 2-5 Gymnastic Teams:

These are compulsory levels, which compete in the Junior Olympic program. Under this program, each gymnast must perform the exact same routine per level, established by the USA Gymnastic Organization. All of these teams compete during the Fall season (August-October), locally and though qualifications, can compete in the State Championship Competition. Currently we are full in most of our teams. Placement into these teams are by invitation and evaluation only. Contact Alexis Shipe, the Compulsory Director.

The Level 4 & 5 Team is an Intermediate compulsory team which trains 11 hours per week and competes locally and can qualify to the State Championship Competition. Gymnasts must be at least 6 years old to compete at this level and the student teacher ratio is 10:1. Our coaches for this team are Alexis Shipe, and Dan Stewart.



Level 6-10 Gymnastic Teams:

These are Optional Level Competitive teams. These gymnasts compete in the Junior Olympic Program under USA Gymnastics. Gymnasts at this level must perform certain mandatory elements within their level, composed around special choreographed and individual routines.  (All routines choreographed by Darcie Fellows) Currently we have limited space in our Optional Level Teams, call for more information.
