Girls Gymnastics Teams

Team Program Philosophy
We strive to maximize each individual’s potential. We are able to accomplish this because of our great coaches and their ability to know each one of their gymnasts. Our gymnasts needs come 1st.

Team History
For over ten years, Surgent’s Elite has been the dominant force in the J.O.G.A. league. Surgent’s Elite is perennially the most decorated team at the annual State championship, winning many of the J.O.G.A. levels in team, all-around and individual categories. In the last eight years  Surgent’s Elite has produced multiple NCAA Division I, II and III competitors for such schools as Temple U., William & Mary, Springfield College, U. of New Hampshire, Ursinus, Ithaca, Bridgeport, Wisconsin U. and Rutgers U.

Team Coaches
We have an incredibly diverse coaching staff with members from Colombia, Cuba, and many parts of the U.S. Our coaches are former National Team Members, World Championship Team Members, NCAA Division I Champions, public and private high school gymnastics coaches and National Team Members for their respective home countries. Our coaches pool their individual experiences, knowledge, backgrounds and love for the sport to make your child’s gymnastics experience with Surgent’s Elite truly unique. All our coaches are U.S.A.G. and J.O.G.A. members. They all hold a U.S.A. G. Safety Certificate and have cleared a background check.

The goal of our pre-teams is to transition your daughter from a class to team environment. As your daughter progresses through our pre-team program she will refine a list of over 50 skills on all four Olympic events.

J.O.G.A. League
The J.O.G.A. consists of over 50 gymnastics schools and over 1,000 athletes throughout the state of New Jersey. There are 7 levels in J.O.G.A. Level 7 is the entry level. At Level 1, gymnasts are training to compete for their high school or preparing to continue their gymnastics career on one of the NCAA collegiate gymnastics teams.

Team Summer Camps
Surgent’s Elite offers 3 weeks of Girls Team Camp and 3 weeks of Tumbling Xplosion Camp. It is a great opportunity to take your daughter’s gymnastics to the next level.
