Welcome Back MarVaTeens

by mvtpaadmin ~ June 30th, 2020.

Update regarding MarVaTeens Competitive Girls Team: with the closing of MarVaTots’nTeens gym in June (due in part to COVID-19), I am pleased to announce the new home of the girls team, PRESTON Gymnastics Academy in Gaithersburg! Preston’s is a 14,000 sq ft facility that currently has recreational class programs for children ages pre-school through adults, a competitive boys team and a trampoline/tumbling competitive team! Starting July 1st, it now has a girls competitive team! We’re excited about the opportunity and all of us are anxious to re-start our training again!
