CGSA Philosophy

Our philosophy at Corkscrew Gymnastics & Sports Academy is centered around our Mission and Vision that both point to the importance of ‘Respect’ in everything that we teach.   We continuously challenge kids to develop stronger minds and stronger bodies.

Our Mission at Corkscrew Gymnastics & Sports Academy is to dedicate ourselves to the continuous development and growth of our students, providing a positive and supportive environment that consistently reinforces our core values.

CGSA Core Values

Teaching Desire, Dedication and Self-Discipline

‘RESPECT’ has great importance in everyday life.  As children we are taught to respect ourselves, our parents & family, teachers, elders, school, friends, sport and goals.

Our Vision is  to utilize our love of the sport of gymnastics to provide a fun and safe environment for children of all ages where the desire to learn, respect of others, and excitement of the sport come together to have a ‘twistin’ good time.

Gymnastics and fun, everyday!
