Gymnastics at Chelsea Piers Raises

The BarChelsea Piers Gymnastics is New York Stateís largest, best-equipped and best-staffed gymnastics training center. Sanctioned by USA Gymnastics for local, state and regional competitions and based at the Field House at Chelsea Piers, the Gymnastics Center features two column-free competition spring floors, sunken trampolines, deep foam training pits and tumble tracks, in addition to multiple sets of equipment for each of the menís and womenís Olympic events.

Chelsea Piers Gymnastics offers programming for children ages 17 months to 17 years and for adults of all ages. Childrenís classes are offered in the fall, spring and summer sessions for both girls and boys, for the beginning, intermediate or advanced gymnast. For those children who have excelled at these levels, Chelsea Piers has established girls and boys gymnastics teams which participate in local, state, regional and national competitions.

Chelsea Piers Gymnastics also boasts the largest adult gymnastics program in the US. Over 400 adults regularly participate in tumbling and apparatus classes within the Gymnastics Center. Beginner, intermediate, advanced, elite and apparatus classes are offered. All classes for adults are offered on a rolling, rather than on a semester, basis.

In order to further enhance its programming, the Field House at Chelsea Piers recently named Peter Kormann, former Olympian and Olympic coach, to the position of Director of Gymnastics. In the 1976 Olympics, Kormann was the first man in over 40 years to win a medal for the US. He also was an eight time NCAA Champion in gymnastics, and head coach of the 1996 and 2000 United States Menís Olympic Gymnastics Team.

Since assuming his position at Chelsea Piers Gymnastics, Kormann has continued his quest for excellence in his sport. Under his leadership, the Chelsea Piers Gymnastics Center will certainly take its place among the countryís premier facilities in the sport of gymnastics.
