To teach gymnastics in a healthy and safe environment where children have fun, while developing physical strength, agility, coordination and self confidence.
Our program is here to provide every participant with a chance to succeed in a safe environment. We believe very strongly in sportsmanship, goal setting, respect for others, self-respect, and the development of a strong work ethic. Above all we believe that an athlete's self-esteem is most important. Plus, gymnastics is and should be fun!
We first opened our doors on October 7, 1996 as Gymnastics Elite. We recently decided that we wanted a more kid-friendly name and decided on Alley Oop Gymnastics Center. We have chosen to retain the name of Gymnastics Elite for our team program.
We are owned by three families that have had their own children in the gym for a number of years; first as students, then competitors and finally as coaches. One of the owners and our program director are Washington State Certified Teachers.
We are very proud of our program and our enthusiastic, talented, experienced staff. We are a learning facility. We have an intensive in-house training program for our teachers and we believe it shows in the consistency of our program. Not only do our teachers learn how to teach gymnastics but they also learn to teach the whole child.
We believe in our mission statement and we are here to help create successful youth one cartwheel at a time. To teach gymnastics in a fun, safe environment and raise the child's self esteem.
