At NMGC, our goal is to provide a recreational and competitive gymnastics program to boys and girls of all ages and levels in a positive environment with safety at the forefront. Our staff should actively support and expect each child to be successful in both athletics and academics. We strive for our athletes to hopefully continue in this sport until they graduate high school or continue onto a career in a college atmosphere.  NMGC gymnastics instructors are USA Gymnastics Safety Certified, and trained using the USA Gymnastics guidelines and requirements.
