Gymnastics is a terrific way for a boy to learn neat skills and improve his physical condition. Gymnastics improves fitness, strength, flexibility, balance, timing and agility. It encourages teamwork, planning and perseverence. Our regular schedule runs September 6 - June 16.
PBG is located in the 4700 Wissahickon Avenue industrial complex in Germantown - Building D, Suite 132a. Directions and a schedule are below.
Trampoline classes have begun on Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon! Both boys and girls are welcome.
Philadelphia Boys' Gymnastics is a competitive program in the USA Gymnastics Jr. Olympic Program
The primary purpose of this program is to provide Philadelphia-area youth with a quality training and competitive experience in boys’ gymnastics, within the framework of the USA Gymnastics Boys’ Jr. Olympic Structure. A secondary purpose is to support the Temple University Men's Gymnastics Team. Our facility is in the 4700 Wissahickon Avenue industrial complex in the Germantown section of Philadelphia - Building D, Suite 132a. Directions and a map are available below. Also, SEPTA bus lines H and XH stop in front of our building.
PBG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and gladly accepts tax-deductible donations to further its effort to promote boys' gymnastics and support the Temple University Men's Gymnastics Team, which no longer receives financial support from Temple Athletics as it was demoted from varsity to club status as of July 1, 2014.
