The Manhattan Gymnastics Academy competitive team is made up of young athletes, ages 6 to 22, whose common mission is to excel in the sport of gymnastics to the best of their individual abilities. The role of Manhattan Gymnastics Academy is to provide these youth with quality instruction and training in the sport of gymnastics in a welcoming but focused environment.   It is also the responsibility of Manhattan Gymnastics Academy to provide a competitive experience in gymnastics at the local, state, and regional levels for the athletes to showcase their many skills.  Each team member is expected to positively represent Manhattan Gymnastics Academy at every practice, every demonstration, and at all required team competitions throughout the year

Team competition follows the rules of the USA Gymnastics Jr. Olympic Program. Levels were designed for the continued improvement of skill.
