Staff 0R7A5455.jpg

Our philosophy here at All American Gymnastic Academy is to put the individual child first. With every small success there is a greater inner self success - respect and independence. We love children. We know children want to learn. We know children want a challenge and we are here to make it fun! We have been in this sport and profession of teaching for over 25 years and, as well as parenting children, we know the needs of children. Our talented, experienced staff will guide your gymnast as they acquire new skills and improve existing ones. The classes are age and developmentally appropriate.

Looking to increase our coaching staff At All American Gymnastic Academy we are keeping our eye out for enthusiastic, experienced and qualified gymnastic coaches who are great with kids. We have one of the largest facilities in the northeast! All interested coaches, please call AAGA at (413) 596-0089 or e-mail us at
