Stars Gymnastics is one of the few facilities serving La Puente, West Covina, Covina and Baldwin Park areas. Giving boys and girls the chance to see themselves as a powerful, graceful and talented youth. The situation is particularly poignant for children affected by developmental disabilities-who most need the chance to develop coordination and confidence. Unfortunately, finding athletic activities designed specifically for children with special needs is a rare.
The problem is compounded by the fact that over 18% of this community lives under the poverty level. This means there are students, full of determination and potential, who would love to train in gymnastics, but are unable to due to family finances.
Gymnastics training at the recreational level costs over $500 per student per year! Read more about Cartwheel 2 Success below and how you can help make dreams come true!
