Gymnastics

Wilton Family Y gymnastics programs emphasize Individual skill development in a safe, fun and supportive environment. While gymnastics is an extremely demanding sport, our coaching staff wants your child to have a rewarding experience and encourages children of all ages and ability to participate in our program.

Note: Gymnasts are required to come to class prepared in leotards, hair tied back securely, no jewelry and ready to work and have fun!



The Wilton Family Y gymnastics program moved to a new Training Center located at 644 Danbury Road on the upper floor of the former Stand Firm Fitness building. Over the past several years, the Y's gymnastics classes and competitive team have outgrown the Y gymnasium as enrollment increased significantly. The new Gymnastics Training Center offers greatly expanded space which allows for a permanent set-up for Y gymnastics programs and equipment.
