Falcons Competitive Team (Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics)
(Instructor Placement) See office for prices.
Artistic gymnastics is a great program that teaches gymnasts strength, confidence, grace and flexibility. In these classes we help to develop athletes into amazing competitors while encouraging their personal growth over time. If you are ready for a challenging but rewarding experience contact our office staff to find out more about our program.
A Bit More:
Girls: leotards are the best. However a t-shirt and shorts work, as long as they are not too baggy. Boys: t-shirt and shorts. FOR YOUR SAFETY: All long hair should be pulled back, NO socks, NO jewelry, and NO jeans! NO BARE MIDDRIFFS.
If Belle Vernon School District is closed for or has an early dismissal due to hazardous conditions, then Falcon Gymnastics is also closed. Morning delays will not affect our schedule. Closings will also be posted on our website, facebook and on WPXI. Emails will also be sent.
You are invited to stay and watch your child’s class. Please keep in mind the following rules:
- No coaching from the viewing area. Any yelling across the gym can cause a gymnast to become distracted and possibly cause an injury.
- You are absolutely NOT permitted outside of the viewing area.
- It is recommended that you leave other children who are not participating in class at home. However, if you choose to bring them, they also must stay in the viewing area and must be supervised at all times. The staff will need to give their full attention to the gymnasts in class. We will not be responsible for children who are not in class.
Students must remain in the viewing area until they are called for their class. No food, drink, candy, or chewing gum will be permitted in the gym area. You are not permitted on any equipment without a coach’s supervision. Unless your mom or dad is wearing a Falcon Gymnastics Staff t-shirt, they are not a coach! All gymnasts are asked to follow the 3 R’s:
- Respect your coach
- Respect others
- Respect yourself
Horseplay will not be tolerated, someone could get hurt! Any student who is acting in an inappropriate manner will be asked to leave. Continued misconduct will be cause for dismissal from the program.
Falcon Gymnastics is a non-profit SOKOL gymnastics organization. Sokol was founded in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1862 by Dr. Miroslav Tyrs. He based his program on the democratic principles of the ancient Greeks and their idea of developing “a sound mind in a sound body”. Sokol came to the United States in 1865 and has continued to bring these ideals to people of all ages and abilities around the country for over 135 years. Sokol USA was founded in 1896 in New York City as a benefit society based on the ideals of Tyrs. Sokol USA continues to operate under these guidelines today. Lodge #47 was formed as part of Sokol USA in the 1920’s and had operated in Monessen until the 1980’s. We are proud to be re-activating Lodge #47 in its beautiful new home as Falcon Gymnastics. In 2014, Sokol USA merged with GBU Financial Life. The Lodge #47 philosophy is one that follows the ideals of Dr. Tyrs and Sokol USA; that of Physical Fitness through gymnastics and athletics for all ages and ability levels.
“I am new to the gym sport but my grand daughter loves it. She tells me that her coach is the greatest. I see how the coaches are very patient with these little ones. Good job Falcon Gym! You are helping to form patient and motivated children of our future.”

“All three of my girls go here, at different levels. The lessons they have learned (about life as well as gymnastics) are priceless. My youngest went to physical therapy as a baby, and went back for a check-up recently – they were shocked at how much progress she has made without additional physical therapy, “must be the gymnastics.” The coaches can’t be beat, they are stern but supportive, and the general atmosphere of the gym is positive and affirming to all the kids. If I could give it 10 stars, I would.”

“This place is awesome! Everyone there is so nice and I would highly recommend it! The instructors are all awesome at what they do and I wouldn’t want anyone else teaching my daughter!”
