INDUCTED INTO THE USA GYMNASTICS HALL OF FAME 2008
Hello to all of the visitors to the CGA Website!
I would first like to thank you for visiting our site and I hope that you find all of the information you need about our programs.
Our mission at CGA is; To teach gymnastics through loving discipline while influencing the lives we touch in a positive way! The staff I have hired are unique and talented teachers who offer a variety of teaching styles to meet the needs of each child.
I have owned CGA for over 35 years because I have passion for inspiring and developing self-confidence, faith and courage in young women. God has blessed me with the gift of teaching, I work each day to open that gift with my staff, parents and of course the children who attend CGA. I pray that God continues to watch over all that He has blessed us with and to keep the children and staff safe and strong!
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at MARYLEETRACY@GMAIL.COM
