Philosophy

The Schafer School of Gymnastics mission is that “through teaching gymnastics, we build happy, healthy, responsible kids”. What sets us apart is the quality and the care with which we treat our clients, the children and their parents, and our staff. We teach in a manner that develops in them the life lesson that learning is fun! Through learning and success children build self-esteem and confidence. By treating each other, our students, their parents, and our community with respect, we reflect the family values that we, the Schafer’s, embody.

Gymnastics provides enormous benefits for children. Physically, children will improve muscle strength, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, balance, coordination, and agility. Cognitively, gymnastics develops the mind-body connection, creating brain efficiency and mental acuity. It’s a great way to gain socialization skills, work on goal setting and gain awareness for leading a healthy lifestyle. These benefits help kids stay healthy, learn better academically and can be applied to other sports as well.

Our 8,500 square foot, air-conditioned and ultra clean facility was designed and built exclusively for gymnastics. It includes two tumbling floors, three in ground trampolines, a forty foot tumble track, a loose foam pit, two resi pits, preschool equipment, and two full compliments of men’s and women’s Olympic gymnastics equipment.

Our curriculums, designed separately for each program, not only emphasize correct technique in a progressive manner, but also encourage each student to achieve success in a positive learning atmosphere.
