Competitive Gymnastics in Madision, WI

The Lake City Twisters Competitive Gymnastics Program is one of the top competitive programs within the state of Wisconsin. Each year we have state champions, regional and national qualifiers and champions throughout our program. We strive to create a positive environment for our athletes, providing guidance and instruction, but also teaching accountability, work ethic and determination. We emphasize a holistic approach to coaching each athlete; working with each gymnast to determine individual goals and plans while maintaining our high standards of behavior and effort.

Our Competitive Gymnastics Programs

We offer comprehensive gymnastics training through two unique programs:

  1. Developmental Program: consists of three compulsory levels and four optional levels of training
  2. Youth Xcel: designed for those who’d like to compete, but still have time to pursue other activities

While some competitive gymnastics programs operate on the “my way or the highway” coaching mentality, we take a refreshing approach – one that centers on compassion, empowerment, and personal development. Coaches and athletes work as a team to build physical and emotional resilience as athletes safely progress toward their peak performance.

Our Compulsory level programs (Level 3-5) compete in the fall/winter and our Optional program (Levels 7-10) and Xcel program (Silver-Diamond) compete in the winter/spring.  We typically compete in 5-7 meets per season around the state and region, with opportunities for advancement to Regional and National meets for some of our levels.

If you have interest in one of our competitive team programs, please reach out to us today.

"My daughter, who is 9, has been going to this gym since she was 4 years old. My daughter can't wait to go to practice every day and try out new skills! She has worked directly with Aubrie for several years now. As a parent, I can see that Aubrie has my daughter's best interest at heart. I also appreciate that there are different coaches available to help my daughter work through any problems she encounters with a skill. The coaches are respectable and also professional. I highly recommend Lake City Twisters for beginners or for higher optional levels."

“We only have great things to say about Lake City Twisters. The competent and talented staff guide and direct our daughter at each practice, which has improved her skills immensely. Staff are committed to meeting each gymnast where they are at and then proceed to guide each individual to improve his or her skills. Peers are encouraged to cheer each other on which promotes a team atmosphere. My daughter has grown in confidence and ability which is evident in her skills and personality in and out of the gym. Thanks Lake City Twisters!!!!”

“Our daughter loves Lake City Twisters! She started as a toddler coming to open gym, then started classes, progressed to pre-team, and then joined the competitive levels. She feels like the coaches really care about her, know how to encourage her, and what their expectations are. As parents we love to see what a positive experience she has at the gym with her teammates (the older gymnasts have always served as excellent role models). We always feel our daughter is safe and well cared for, and trust her coaches knowledge of the sport and what is required for growth.”
