Santa Rosa Gymnastics TEAM

Santa Rosa Gymnastics takes pride in our positive, non-pressured coaching and our very supportive atmosphere. Our goal is for each gymnast to attain her full potential and achieve her 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, Xcel Team.

Congratulations To Coach Alexis Shipe!

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Coach Alexis has been chosen as this year's recipient of the
NorCal Compulsory Coach of the Year!

This award is given annually to a Coach that demonstrates exceptional skill, dedication and contribution to the sport of Women's Gymnastics. It is a prestigious honor that serves to recognize the best of the best within our sport. Alexis is a 27 year veteran of our gym, having served in several different capacities during her tenure here. We sincerely believe that she has made an outstanding contribution to the Northern California Women’s Gymnastics Association and the sport of gymnastics as a whole. Alexis Shipe is openminded, progressive, genuine, professional, honest, trustworthy and an invaluable member of our team. Alexis puts in countless hours of work into her job and never desires any extra recognition for her services, always having the gymnasts best interest in mind.

We are so fortunate to have Alexis as an irreplaceable part of our team and we are certain that
Nor Cal Gymnastics would not be the same without her.

It is our honor to extend our personal congratulations to her!
