Along with new equipment and a viewing mezzanine, the new location also boasts an endorsement from the 1996 Olympics team coach Béla Károlyi. The space acts as the training facility for the Darien High School gymnastics team and hosts classes like Tumblebees, a class for toddlers 12 months to 5 years old. The gym offers classes for youth up to eighth grade, including a new boy’s power tumbling class for ages 7-13, and is now able to host classes and teams for boys and girls of all ages, which is exactly what the town of Darien has been in need of.
The YMCA also hosts parties for children ages 3 and older. The parties have the children swinging, rolling, balancing, jumping, and playing games in the foam pits and on the trampolines.
