THE Y FOR
We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.
Competitive Team GymnasticsEvaluation required. Our competitive team trains from 2 to 6 days a week (level dependent). The Mission Valley YMCA Gymnastics Team competes successfully among private clubs local and abroad. We have had many state, regional competitors, as well as Junior Olympic national qualifiers and Junior National team members. Several boys have made it to the collegiate level.
We strive to maintain a positive environment that
builds healthy bodies, strong minds, and willing spirits.
All team members must be members of Mission Valley YMCA, and participation is by tryout only.
All programs take place at Toby Wells YMCA, 5105 Overland Drive, Kearny Mesa, (858) 496-9622. See map. (Toby Wells YMCA is a facility of Mission Valley YMCA.)
