Lakeshore Academy


USAG Girls

Lakeshore Academy’s USAG Girls Team is an invite only program. Children who show potential in our recreational classes will be invited to try the pre team classes on a trial basis.

These classes develop skills on uneven bars, floor exercise, vault, and balance beam. Their workouts focus on flexibility, strength training, and dance in order to perform complex and highly advanced routines.

Pre-Team and TOPS

We also have an invite girls pre-team program. Young girls (4 years+) in these programs are chosen from their preschool classes to train 2 to 3 times per week.

These girls work on developing their flexibility and strength while perfecting basic gymnastics skills that will make them successful on our girls team. These champions-to-be work on all four competitive events learning the body positions, techniques, and vocabulary that they will need in their years ahead.

Girls who are on competitive team may qualify for the TOPS program.

USAG is the sole national governing body for the sport of gymnastics in the Unite States. USAG sets the rules and policies that govern gymnastics in the US.
