Olympia Gymnastics & Team Central Celebrate National Gymnastics Day by Giving Back
Olympia Gymnastics, Ninja City, and Team Central will be hosting special events throughout September to recognize National Gymnastics Day. This year we are partnering with St. Louis Children's Hospital to assist in raising money for the Hospital and their special needs for the children they serve. Our gyms will be hosting Special KNO or KDO throughout September and 100% of the proceeds from these events will be donated to St. Louis Children's Hospital.
Every choice, every rotation, every drill, every long night/day, every word we speak in the gym is based on our mission to build happy, healthy, confident kids. Unfortunately, not every child has the simple opportunity to be happy, healthy, and confident. This year for National Gymnastics Day, all 9 of our gyms are uniting to make an impact on the circumstances that keep kids from living our mission. Together, we are raising money to benefit St. Louis Children’s Hospital and help the children in our gyms understand the joy and necessity of giving back to the community. Join us in working toward our mission by donating to St. Louis Children's Hospital!
Any and all donations help us reach our goal! We have many ways you can contribute to this goal.
- Attend one of our Kid's Night Out events (and bring a friend)
- Invite Friends and Share Online Through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
- Contribute to our Donation Box located in our Gym Lobbies
- Go online and donate

OLYMPIA'S LETTER TO PARENTS ABOUT ABUSE IN GYMNASTICS
Dear Olympia Families,
The safety of your child, our young student/athletes, is of great importance to us at Olympia. "Good for Kids" is not just an empty motto of ours. We mean it, we live it, and you will see it. With the recent attention given to Dr. Nassar, the doctor in the news, and his horrid abuse of young children, we are given great pause. We want you to be aware of a few things. We have been creators of safe practices over the years and we will continue to develop practices that place your child in a safe environment. Read more here...Letter from the Owner of Olympia
SPIRIT ELITE PROGRAM ENDS
It is with great sadness that we announce Olympia will no longer offer competitive cheerleading as of April 2018. We are very proud of the wonderful "Good for Kids" experiences we have offered young cheerleaders over the years (since 1993). We also take pride in the numerous National honors earned through the hard work of our athletes and coaches. Thank you to all the cheerleadingers, parents, staff, and family of Spirit Elite for the wonderful memories that you helped create over the last 25 years.
