Here at Seattle Gymnastics Academy we strive to provide the very best service to our customers. Here are some things to keep in mind.
For the comfort and safety of our gymnasts, instructors at SGA are certified in USA Gymnastics and Heads Up! Concussion Training, have regular national background checks, and are trained in CPR and first aid.
Even with highly trained instructors, is impossible to eliminate the danger in gymnastics. A gymnast could be seriously injured while participating in gymnastics.
Gymnastics is inherently dangerous because it is physically demanding and immovable equipment creates the risk of injury. While most injuries are minor, some can be extremely serious: severe pain, broken bones, damage to internal organs, and in extreme cases, total paralysis or death can result from landing improperly on the head, neck, or back.
If you have a specific safety concern, we are happy to discuss it. Please talk to one of our coaches or a registrar.
