Gymnastics Lessons

FROM THE GYMNASTICS DEPARTMENT

We are extremely fortunate to have a separate facility for gymnastics, allowing us to keep equipment set up year round. Our coaches bring tremendous knowledge and expertise to our gymnastic program here at the YMCA. Please review the descriptions for our youth lessons, private lessons and gym team.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

The Greensburg YMCA strives to never turn any child away due to the families inability to pay for programming. With that in mind we will accept two forms of assistance in defraying the costs of camp. One way is through the YMCA Annual Support Campaign. The YMCA is able to grant scholarships to families in need due to the generosity of local businesses and individuals who donate monies to the campaign.  We encourage those who may not be able to afford camp services on their own to complete a Financial Assistance Application and submit it to the Welcome Center of the YMCA. Please allow up to four weeks for processing.  Additionally both Adventure Camp and Sports Camp accept payment from Child Care Information Services (CCIS).  Families should contact CCIS of Westmoreland County to inquire if they are qualified (724-836-4580).
