CVGA offers classes for children once they are fully potty trained through the age of 18. In the boys’ program at CVGA, we train our gymnasts on all six Olympic events: Vault, Parallel Bars, High Bar, Pommel Horse, Rings, and Floor. Our program allows gymnasts to progress at a rate that is right for each individual child based on age and skill level.
