Junior Olympic Teams
The real deal! Our girls and boys Junior Olympic Teams train, compete, and impress at levels 3 through 10 of the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic system at the local, state, regional, and national levels. Each competition season since the program’s inception in 1963, SCATS gymnasts have garnered THOUSANDS of State, Regional, and National Champion titles. Our veteran Junior Olympic program coaches are committed to maintaining a safe and positive environment for team members that involves close communication with parents, focused on the progress and individual goals of their young gymnast. The staff inspires a strong work ethic and camaraderie across all competitive levels, and the program has created great opportunities for many young girls over the years. Gymnasts at upper levels have the chance to travel and compete all over the country, while many have earned college scholarships and carved unique career paths inside and outside of gymnastics as a direct result of their time at SCATS. The Junior Olympic Team experience is one that lasts a lifetime for our SCATS Team Members and families, and it is an ongoing source of pride for our coaches whose mission it is to improve upon it year over year.
