Preston Gymnastics Academy is proud to offer a quality competitive program for boys ages 6 & up. This program practices year-round, and competes in many of the local gyms located in Maryland. Our coaching staff, led by Tim Preston, believe firmly in the lifelong benefits of progressive teaching and movement education. All of our athletes receive instruction on the six competitive events, including Floor Exercise, Pommel Horse, Still Rings, Vaulting Table, Parallel Bars, and Horizontal Bar. They also participate in unique conditioning programs designed to maximize potential in regards to strength, power, presentation & posture, flexibility, mental conditioning, and aerial awareness.
In addition to competitions, our athletes participate in a wide array of USA Gymnastics (USAG) events, including state, regional and national clinics, regional training camps, and athlete workshops. Our coaching staff stays on top of current techniques and ideas by attending coach workshops, and by attending Regional and National Congress'.
All of our athletes must be registered with USAG in order to compete. In late August/early September of each year, athletes must pay a registration fee to USAG for their athlete registration number.
