Meriden YMCA


Gymnasts on Pre-Team are already skilled in many areas of gymnastics and their goal is to join the gymnastics team. Coaches start to introduce the gymnasts to some of the demands and requirements of team, as well as new and more advanced skills. While Pre-Team is not competition driven, gymnasts have the opportunity to learn routines and actually compete! Coach will provide schedule.

The MNBB YMCA Panthers Gymnastics Team

The gymnasts on the Meriden–New Britain–Berlin YMCA Gymnastics Team compete in USA Junior Olympic Levels 3-10 at YMCA and USAG meets. Our gymnasts range in age from seven years old to Masters Gymnasts. Our Head Coach Tony Cortright focuses on the gymnasts mastering all areas of gymnastics with performance based training, as well as safety, education, integrity, honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. A Meriden-New Britain-Berlin YMCA membership is required. Coach will provide the schedule.
