Our Mission

United Sports Academy’s mission is to provide young people in our community with the finest gymnastics experience and serve as the premier talent development center in the area. We are committed to enlightening the future generation with the importance of regular exercise and the impact it has on self-confidence, character, goal setting and overall well being.

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of United Sports Academy is unique in one single aspect. Although we provide Olympic level training, we believe gymnastics is only a part in the development of a child’s whole being. Through the training of physical strength we foster self discipline, respect, self confidence and encourage our students to excel in all areas of their lives!

Benefits of Gymnastics

There are literally dozens of benefits of gymnastics. More than anything, fun associated with fitness activities early on can create lifelong, positive fitness habits for your child. In addition, gymnastics is the “Sport of all Sports”, preparing kids for any sport they become involved in later in life.

  • Mental focus. Learning how to concentrate on a task and achieving goals.
  • Balance. Walking on beams can transfer later to riding a bike.
  • Social skills. Taking turns, working with partners, sharing, making friends and acknowledging the accomplishments of others.
  • Strength. Climbing on bars and ropes develops muscle strength.
  • Flexibility. Improved range of motion through stretching and holding body positions.
  • Coordination. Hand-eye coordination improves writing ability while eye tracking improves reading readiness.
  • Health. Burning calories and improving cardiovascular health can help jump-start a life of fitness.
