Broderick Gymnastics is a 10,000 square foot gymnastic facility which opened it’s doors in January 2004. It’s owners are Richard and Karen Broderick.
Our emphasis is on fun and fitness. We want children to be secure, self-confident and strong. We want them to leave with a smile on their face. We believe gymnastics is the basis for all sports, whether children go on to play soccer, hockey, ballet, etc… gymnastics will give them the fundamental skills needed to succeed. We take a friendly and positive approach when training our gymnasts. We want them to be successful and achieve their individual goals, hopes and dreams.
