Our Gymnastics Program is based on the National YMCA Progressive Gymnastics Program and the USA Junior Olympic Gymnastics Program.  Our program is designed for children to have fun while learning gymnastics skills and lifetime skills such as goal setting, safety, self-discipline, and self-confidence.  Our instructors try to instill the YMCA core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.   Our program is open to both boys and girls and is offered on a monthly basis based off of our session dates.

Meet Amber Calvert

Gymnastics Coordinator & Team Coach

Amber has lived in Marysville with her husband and three children for the past thirteen years. Amber has been active in gymnastics for over 35 years. When she was not competing, she was coaching. Her gymnastics experience as a child was intense, and Amber wanted to share the love for the sport without the level of intensity and demands of a private club.

Amber is proud that the program at the YMCA allows gymnasts to be successful in the sport without missing out on other activities such as choir, plays, Girl Scouts, volleyball, track, and others. Amber is a USAG Professional Member and USAG Safety Certified.

She has been working with the YMCA Gymnastics program for nearly ten years and has been coaching the Shining Stars Gymnastics team for the past eight seasons. In her spare time, Amber enjoys traveling, and sewing. She is excited to be a part of the YMCA.
