Skyview Teams offer children the opportunity to pursue gymnastics to a more advanced level, to participate in USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic competition, and to perform on National and International stages. Gymnastics is a difficult and beautiful sport, with lessons to teach about teamwork, responsibility, perseverance, and the power of a positive attitude. The challenges and rewards of making a serious commitment to the sport are incomparable. Gymnasts are among the strongest and healthiest of all young athletes - physically and mentally. It is our goal to give every athlete the opportunity to excel, and to do so in a positive, nurturing atmosphere.
Team Try-Outs and a Special Team Camp
are held each Summer for students interested in
Competition or the Skyview Performance Team
Next year's camp will be June 24-28 (ONE WEEK ONLY)
Team Camp is open to ALL Skyview students who have participated in
(at least) Gym 2, Tumble 2, Boys 2 or AcroGym B classes during the year.
Half Day Preteam/Introductory sessions are available for younger students.

Power TeamGym is a competitive version of group gymnastics in which athletes compete as a group in two events — Group Floor Exercise and Group Jump. The Jump event includes Tumbling, Vault & MiniTramp. There are 10 graded difficulty levels. Skyview has had a number of competitive TeamGym groups over the years (and a trophy or two to prove it).

Skyview Teams have been performing at local community fairs and festivals since 1996! Our Gymdancers have been "regulars" at the Mount Airy Fall Festival and May Fest, Damascus Community Fair, Frederick In the Street, Clarksburg, Kemptown, Urbana and Green Valley school fairs, the Mount Airy Santa Parade and fundraisers for Frederick Hospice, Carroll County Youth Services Bureau, and many others for many years. We've been on hiatus for a couple of years, but we are aiming for a comeback in 2018. Join us!
The Acro/Tumbling Demonstration Team is offered as an "add-on" to students and members of Skyview Competitive Teams - an opportunity to share one's love of gymnastics and practice the art of our beautiful sport.
