Competitive Team Program

Gymnastics & More’s competitive team program is designed for the gymnast who is proficient with all the skills required in our recreational class programs. Once they have achieved those skills (USA Gymnastics Levels 1-2), they are invited to train with our Level 3 (Xcel Bronze) competitive team who will train Level 4 skills in hopes of moving up to our competitive Level 4/Xcel Silver (or higher) team. We have girls competitive gymnastics.

Our team program maintains the same philosophy of Gymnastics & More: To build self-esteem through fitness and fun AND to teach the sport in a safe and fun environment while raising the child’s level of self-esteem. Our team program also includes certain coaching goals: To provide the mental and physical discipline needed for competition within a framework of positive reinforcement and encouragement. Learning to be comfortable in a competitive situation is a positive experience and adds to a child’s development.

We established our team in 1994 and have won a South Carolina State Championship Team Title every year. That means from 1994-2016, an Ocean Flipper or an entire Ocean Flipper Team was crowned STATE CHAMPION. We have produced over 50 individual All-Around State Champions. Our first graduating senior from high school earned a full gymnastics scholarship to the University of North Carolina. Our most recent graduating senior received a full gymnastics scholarship to the Arizona State University. The owner of Gymnastics & More, Louie Liguori, has had a total of 12  gymnasts receive college gymnastics scholarships and 3 on the Junior National Team.
