Classes at Seattle Gymnastics Academy

Seattle Gymnastics Academy's recreational program exists to build strength, skill and character through gymnastics training while promoting healthy, active, happy children. We don't focus solely on the physical strengths and skills for gymnastics, but also strive to instill life lessons of persistence and determination. Our students have fun climbing, tumbling and being upside down, but they also build body awareness, coordination, balance, strength and flexibility while learning how to think about what they did, make a correction and try again.

SGA offers a wide variety of recreational classes, ranging from toddler movement to adult classes. Your first stop will be to talk to the Registrars at the front desk or call (206-362-7447).
