 The Iowa Gym-Nest TOPs Program


TOPs is an acronym for Talent Opportunities Program. Its base is in building strength, flexibility, and solid basics for young girls who show promise in the sport of gymnastics. It is designed to help prepare students for testing in the USA Gymnastics TOPs program from the ages of 7 to 10. Gymnasts who are successful in the TOPs program are able to compete at a National level and participate in camps at the USA Gymnastics National Team and Olympic Training Center. Gymnasts who participate in TOPs programs generally progress faster in gymnastics, and have a strong foundation to help them reach their goals in the sport: whether it be competing at an elite level, a high Junior Olympic level, or achieving a college scholarship.


Each age level in our TOPs program will have milestones for the girls to reach in order to help them be successful as they grow in gymnastics. All classes in the IGN TOPs program are by invitation only.

Tiny TOPs:

Tiny TOPs is for 5 year olds, and meets 6 hours per week. There will be a continued focus on strength and flexibility in the class. In Tiny TOPs skill acquisition will also play an important role, and this is where strong basic gymnastics will begin to come into play.


Junior TOPs

Junior TOPs is for 6 year olds, and meets 9 hours per week. Strength, flexibility, and basic gymnastics skills will still be emphasized. Junior TOPs will also be preparing for competitions, and competing 3-4 times per year.
