Special Abilities Programs
Temporarily discontinued due to COVID and the impacts of needing to rebuild our staff after multiple state-mandated closures. We hope to be able to phase back in programs towards the end of 2023 and at the beginning of 2024.
We look forward to serving you again. Thank you for understanding!
Spokane Gymnastics offers programs for children with special abilities, including structured classes plus free sensory-friendly indoor playground.
