Objective
To provide instruction for children of all ages and levels.

Purpose
To provide for children of all abilities a happy and safe learning experience in fundamental movement and basic gymnastic skills. We help children experience mental acuity as well as physical aptitude.

Philosophy
Gymnastics is one of the most fundamental and exciting of all physical activities. Basic gymnastic skills develop attributes that are perfect stepping stones for other sports and activities, flexibility, balance, strength and agility. Through proper instruction, children show progress in many key developmental areas. Gymnastics specifically will build physical fitness - especially strength, flexibility, body awareness, coordination, confidence, creativity and fun - the kind of fun that comes from accomplishing goals, making new friends and experiencing the excitement of learning new skills.

Staff
Gym Starz Gymnastics is proud of its highly qualified and experienced staff. They work with children of all ages and abilities. Our USAG/USAIGC certified staff has been carefully selected and trained to motivate students using positive reinforcement and fun activities. Members of our staff continue to attend seminars and clinics, keeping Gym Starz Gymnastics a leader with the most up-to-date training techniques in all apparatus.


Facility
We have a state-of-the-art facility containing a complete set of world class equipment for both gymnastics and cheerleading. Our equipment is of the highest quality design to accommodate all levels of competition including the same used in competition nationally - tumble track, and our new European national vaulting table, a superior piece of equipment.

​​Susquehanna Valley Gym Starz and Cheer Starz Rockets All Star Cheerleading

In 1997, Angie, Misi and Joni, formed the Cheer Starz Rockets All-Star cheerleading team. They went from one senior team in the beginning to now running the longest and most sucessful all-star cheerleading program in the area!

​Cheer Starz All Star Cheerleading has been in existence since 1997. With 4 competitive teams, we have lots of cheerleaders and are always looking for more. Stop by and check out our program!


Ask around! Chances are no matter where you cheer, someone there has been a Rocket...or been trained by the coaches at Gym Starz...

In the fall of 1997, the staff at Gym Starz Gymnastics decided to form a competitive cheerleading team. Together with 13 girls, they set out to form what later became known as "Cheer Starz Rockets" All-Stars.

The girls came together in November and quickly prepared for competition in February. Lead by freshman Cheryl De Francesco, this Junior team won everywhere they went. They were unstoppable! During their first season as an All-Star team, they competed in less than 6 competitions finishing with a great showing, a 4th place finish in Busch Gardens, VA. With a lot of hard work, these girls persevered and continued to help the program grow in numbers as well as ability.
