Where Kids Can Grow!


Class Programs

Free Trial Class for new members. We invite you to try our program and find out how Berks East Gymnastics can be an important part of your child's development. Instructional classes are available for boys and girls, tots through teens. Our programs are designed to be developmentally appropriate, yet challenging for even the most talented athletes. Class placement is determined by both age and ability. We offer free trial lessons to assist you with determining the most appropriate class for your child. The Master Staff also conducts individual evaluations when necessary. All of our classes use standard gymnastics apparatus, including the new Vault Table. In addition to our spring floor, foam "marshmallow" pit and tumbling strip, bars and beam, gymnasts learn to bounce correctly on trampoline and our tumbling trampoline.

Make-Up Procedures
Should your child miss a lesson, we offer make-up classes (excluding gym holidays). Make-up classes must be scheduled in advance. Because we strive to maintain the optimal student-teacher ratio in each class, there are specific class day/times that are available for make-ups. No drop-in make-up classes will be accepted. All missed lessons, for whatever reason, must be made-up within 30 days. Thank you for your understanding.

What Should Children Wear?

Girls should wear a leotard or shorts and a t-shirt tucked in. Boys wear shorts and a t-shirt tucked in. For tumbling bare feet are best. Hair should be pulled back for safety, as long hair interferes with rolling somersaulting and twisting skills. Please no gum or jewelry.
