GMS Gymnastics offers a competitive girls team program from level Xcel, 3 to 10 and a competitive boys program from levels 4-9 .
The GMS Team program has been state and nationally ranked since 1988. Our philosophy for the team program has always been to develop well rounded gymnasts with strong work ethic and self confidence. We encourage team building and character development throughout the practices. We also encourage academic growth and attention to school work. Our gymnasts are motivated to keep a consistent schedule where they are able to manage their social lives, academics and gymnastics. New to our team is the Xcel program. The Xcel program is designed for gymnasts who enjoy competing however may have other extra curricular activities they are involved in and are not required to practice as long. The Xcel program provides a great opportunity for gymnasts who may have started later in their lives to experience competition and team bonding.

The GMS boys team has grown in the past five years to become a force to be reckoned with in the state of Virginia. We believe gymnastics is one of the best first sports to experience for boys who would like to learn about self discipline and work ethic. The boys team practices in a state of the art facility custom made for olympic and national training purposes. Our philosophy for the boys team is similar to that of the women’s program, we encourage team building and want to train well rounded individuals.
