June 18, 2013 (El Cajon) – On Saturday, June 22nd from 9am-11am, the East County Family YMCA will host the grand opening of a new 4,000 square-foot, YMCA Gymnastics Center, where guests can sign-up for a special introductory 4-week session, tour the new facility, and meet the staff!

The new Gymnastics Center, located at 2471 Jamacha Rd. Ste. 102-104, El Cajon 92019 features a full array of gymnastics equipment and sufficient space and amenities to accommodate preschool and school age gymnastics training and practice. This off-site gymnastics facility replaces and expands the previous program, which was housed at the McGrath Family YMCA on Campo Road due to the strong demand for gymnastics and fitness classes. The gymnastics program held offsite will not only allow for more days and times for gymnastics classes, but will also provide more space for additional group exercise classes at the McGrath Family YMCA.

“This Gymnastics Center is another example of our East County Family YMCA is committed to youth development and healthy living,” said Rob Sauvajot, Executive Director/Vice President for the East County Family YMCA. “This project, and the currently under-construction expanded Health and Wellness Center at the McGrath Family YMCA (opening the end of June), both support the health of East County’s residents and the vitality of our neighborhoods. We are pleased to meet community needs deliver quality program and services for the benefit of everyone!”

The East County Family YMCA offers one of the finest and longest standing gymnastics programs in San Diego. Recreation classes are geared toward students that want to have fun while trying to improve coordination, strength, flexibility and motor skills.

Features of the new facility include: equipment padding, landing mats, skill cushions, spotting blocks, spring floors and more.
