Since 1986, throughout Metro Atlanta, KiDsGyM USA® has served more than 100,000 children between the ages of 12 months and 21 years. Today, it is known as one of the most unique interventions and prevention programs for children and youth. KiDsGyM USA tumblers can be seen tumbling throughout the city from Atlanta Hawks games to China.
KiDsGyM USA is currently or has served the following community organizations: Boys and Girls Club of America, Fulton County Recreation Centers, Atlanta Public Schools, Sheltering Arms Head Start Centers and private academies.
KiDsGyM USA was the first independent after school program offered in public housing communities in 1987. It uses gymnastics as a deterrent to at-risk behaviors. KiDsGyM USA appeals to the thrills and excitement young people seek.
In 1980, Founders Tracy and Stephanie were recruited by University of Illinois officials to establish a preschool motor development program in the state of Washington. In 1986, they relocated the program to Atlanta and incorporated as KiDsGyM USA®.
Our Mission is to put fitness principles into practice through gymnastics and educational programs that build mental and physical lifestyles for children and youth.
Our philosophy is to expose your child to a multitude of experiences that:
Build their confidence and self-esteem,
Increase their focus and concentration,
Make them stronger and more flexible,
Help them learn to positively interact with their peers
Develop coordination and agility for any and all sports.
We strongly believe that every child (no matter what age) should be exposed to all of the gymnastic apparatus, learn gymnast body positions, develop gymnastic skills and gain knowledge of gymnastic terminology.
MORE THAN just gymnastics, the KiDsGyM USA curriculum is designed to strengthen a child’s ability to remember, actively listen and follow directions.
