Metro Gymnastics Center
Where Kids Get a Jump on Life!
Metro Gymnastics Center, based in Tigard, Oregon, was founded in March of 1990. That month Metro started out with approximately 60 students and has grown to over 1,100 students since that time. Metro has also grown from 11,000 square feet to 21,000 square foot facility. Metro offers a wide variety of gymnastics classes, team gymnastics programs, the Metro Dance Academy, and preschool programs. In addition, we offer dozens of events and activities including Birthday Parties, Summer Camps, Mini-Nationals and Skill Clinics to name a few.
Metro Gymnastics recently received the honor of being designated as a Gold Medal Children’s Activity Center by the prestigious Character Counts!
Owners & Staff
David was a competitive gymnast from 1974 – 1979 and has been a positive influence in the lives of many children for the past 22 years. He is currently the Men’s Region II Chairman and has served USA Gymnastics for the past 17 years. David is KAT certified, Level II Accredited, Safety Certified and has been a Professional Member since 1984. His love for children really comes through in his caring approach to teaching children of all ages and all abilities. He helps to set the standard by which all Metro’s employees are measured.
Cindy’s background actually came from anything but gymnastics. She earned her degree in Psychology from the University of Puget Sound and has been a teacher at Metro since 1995. Cindy is KAT certified; safety certified and is Director of Metro’s Mini Movers Gymnastics gymnastics program (with an enrollment of over 400 children). She also has a unique care and love for children, which makes her a model for the entire Metro Staff.
Metro’s gymnastics staff is carefully selected and they are continually improving their professionalism through education and certification programs. Metro Gymnastics Center provides staff training in a multitude of physical activities that will benefit your child throughout their lives. All Metro staff are required to be First Aid/CPR certified as well as Level 1 Accredited.
Since 1990 the staff of Metro Gymnastics Center has been influential in the general development of thousands of local children. We believe that the lessons these children have learned at Metro have helped make them the strong leader, outstanding athletes and confident students they are. This is evident by Metro Gymnastics Center’s Mission Statement:
To provide a fun, positive and self-esteem building environment for all children and adults who participate in any of our programs. This will be accomplished by:
- Teaching children that they have self-worth
- Keeping children safe and healthy
- Helping children to love to learn
- Helping children to learn physical skills
