GIRLS' JUNIOR OLYMPIC
The goal of the Junior Olympic (JO) program is to challenge kids through designed, structured progressions to try and get kids to the highest possible levels of gymnastics. The JO program is a higher level of competition and commitment with stricter requirements, as it prepares them for collegiate gymnastics.
Gleason's aims to help each gymnast reach her goals through hard work and the pursuit of excellence and to use her gymnastics experiences in preparation for life after the sport.
