Gymnastics is a fantastic way for children to develop flexibility, motor skills, and strength with help from a professional instructor. Whether your child has expressed interest in becoming the next Simone Biles or simply needs an outlet for extra energy, gymnastics could be the solution. In the Memorial District, we have a couple of great gymnastics centers that you will flip for, and with summer break approaching soon, now is the time to check out what options are available. Read on to learn more.
You will find gymnastics as well as tumbling, cheer classes, ninja zone, and aerial arts at Birons Youth Sports Center at 10225 Katy Freeway, Houston, TX 77079. Birons takes students as young as 18 months old, and they offer everything from beginner-level courses to programs for competitive student-athletes. The classes are progression-based, so the instructors will assess where the students are in their learning and tailor the program to their needs.
Birons Youth Sports Center also offers exciting summer camps, both half-day from 9 a.m. to noon and full day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. They even have extended morning and afternoon care options available. The gymnastics camp runs from May 31 to August 12. According to the website, it consists of “high energy training and focused skill practice on all Olympic rotations. Our half-day gymnastics camp is built on purpose, technique, quality, and having a blast!” There is also a ninja zone camp available for children who might have fun playing on the obstacle course. The 2022 summer camp registration is open now.
