Girls USAG Team (Level 2-10 & Elite)
OUR TEAM MISSION STATEMENT: At the Rochester Gymnastics Academy we provide the highest level of training in a positive, encouraging culture, complying with the Safe Sport provisions with a focus dedicated more toward helping children reach their fullest potential and achieve their goals and dreams, one of which is to enable each athlete to earn a full gymnastics scholarship and to further their education, all the time with a focus dedicated more toward the individual than the medals.

OUR METHOD: RGA has a well-earned reputation for winning, but we didn’t earn it with the attitude that we will do anything to win. Our success comes from our method: we work hard and we remain focused on our goals and our mission statement. Our program is one of the country’s leaders when it comes to teaching through a series of skill progression in a positive environment. All of our skills work through a series of progressions, allowing the gymnast to reach their potential, safely and confidently. The process can sometimes be time-consuming but the end result is well worth the method and it is the key to our enduring success.
SAFE SPORT: We adhere to and enforce the USA Gymnastics Safe Sport policies and procedures and the Athlete’s Bill of Rights in every program within RGA. This means that our coaches are never allowed one-on-one time or communication with any gymnast in our program. All interactions between every gymnast and their coach is done as a group or with parental involvement.
OUR COACHES: We take great pride in our coaching staff at the Rochester Gymnastics Academy. All of our coaches are Professional Members of USA Gymnastics.
