Women's Entry Level Team Program

This Kokomotion Program competes under the National Gymnastics Association (NGA) at levels 1 through level 5.  We feel that the lower level NGA system can be more productive, more progressive, and more fun than the USA Gymnastics (USAG) compulsory program.  It will enhance the variety and entertainment of both gymnast and parent, making a happier training and competition environment.

Families are financially responsible for Monthly Tuition, Meet Entries, and Travel Expenses of the coach working the meet.  The Meet Entries and Travel Expenses will be dealt with through a monthly "Competition Fee" that spreads the expense over 8 months.

Competition Team is by invitation or by tryout.  If you are former or current competitive gymnast looking to train with us, give us a call to set up a trial time.

Levels 6-10

Level 6-10 times will vary depending on time of season.

We will compete in both NGA & USAG to maximize the gymnasts opportunity to compete against the most athletes, clubs, and in front of the most college recruiters we can.

These levels have an increasingly large variability in style and skill.  It would be impossible to list all the potential avenues a gymnast may travel.  As the levels progress, coaches & choreographers tailor the routines to the gymnasts strengths.

Kokomotion takes pride that our team is like our family.  We train together, we support each other, and we gather as a team outside the gym as well.  Team is a commitment, but it is committing to something good.
