My daughter attended camp at Bart Conner and we had a blast. The coaches were excellent, the facility is very nice and the gymnast to coach ratio was really good. She got 6 hours of practice each of the three days and learned some great new skills. The only downside was it was advertised as a camp for those who competed a minimum of level 3 last year and ages 6 and up. There were clearly campers who were younger than... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse

My daughter has been going to this gym off and on for a few years now. The team coaches are great. But, my daughter just started back after being out of gymnastics for over a year...So, for the first time she was put into a recreational class. When I called to set up the class, I was told to come on Tues & Thurs. But, when I got there, the class was full, and I had just called the day before. The person that I ta... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
My daughter has been a member of Bart Conner for four years. She is 7 years young. She has had, and continues to have excellent instruction.The coaches are dedicated to the kids ! Not just mine, but all kids! I see this, Im there alot ! I have had, and continue to have lots of questions, as to why and how and what for. It seems at the drop of a hat the coaches are ready to inform me and I APPRECIATE that ! The meets ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
We have had our daughter in the pre-school program at Bart Conners for the past 2 yrs. She absolutely love it. The teachers are fantastic and do a great job. They have something new and challenging each week for the kids. My daughter has now moved up to kindercubbies and is really excelling fast! One suggestion I have would be to create the capability to pay our monthly fees online at the Bart Conner website. That wo... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse

We have been coming to BCGA for over 6 years now. I can tell you the coaches and staff have been great! To those people who claim they can't talk to coaches, then they have never asked. Any time I need to speak to a coach, I ask. Please don't complain if you aren't willing to pursue the information. I have never seen a coach flat out refuse to talk to a parent. However, the coaches are there to coach, not have a 20 m... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
My child has been at BCG now for almost 2 years. The first year he was there he was scared to go into the gym and the staff was pretty good about coaxing him out and getting him to participate. There was also a male teacher who used to take the little boys separate from the little girls for a portion of the class which I think worked well and helped decrease the teacher to student ration a bit. We signed up for anoth... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
Starting in the summer of 2010, we have split the pre-school classes into more levels. This should allow better placement of the children. We do have a student to staff ratio and rarely go over 1-5, and are usually under that. Some classes are larger, but we add staff to keep the ratio down. All our pre-school classes are only 45 minutes and we reserve the extra 10 minutes of the hour for parents to talk with the teachers, if they so desire. We also send out a weekly newsletter, via e-mail with all the personal e-mails of the directors. We encourage parents to e-mail us with any questions. We have a lot of students and the gym is busy, but we really try to keep the communication lines open as much as possible.
I have had a child at the gym for 3 years, I read the review of the person who said they cancelled class all the time, I guessing they were on Saturday, because I started on Saturday, and that did happen alot. I have switched days and have not had that experience since. The secretary is not there on saturdays, I did have them prorate once for saturday. But that all aside, they are great, we are military and experienc... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
My son has been at Bart Conner for just under 2 years now & I am going to discontinue taking him there any longer. The staff all seems fairly good, but you get no face time with them as a parent. Also, there never seems to be anyone available to answer questions or pass out info - they have a front desk but no one sits there. They cancel class a lot & say that you may come for a make-up on a different... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
During the day, we do not have a secretary at the front desk. The secretary arrives at 4:00 during the week and is there until 8:30 p.m. Both of our directors teach classes and there is 15 minute break between classes for parents to ask questions or visit with the teachers/directors about any concerns or questions they might have. We send out a weekly newsletter, via e-mail that lists all the activities going on in the gym that week and it includes the personal e-mails of the directors. Some of the classes are larger, but we keep a strict student to teacher ratio of 1-5 and many times it is less than that. The only time we cancel classes is if there is bad weather, and sometimes we are open when even the schools are closed. We do cancel once in a while on Saturday, as we host gymnastics meets 3-4 times during the year at our gym. We ask parents to make-up, but if they cannot, and they ask, we will pro-rate the next month. We are always working on improving parent communication and service.
My children LOVE going to BCG. However, I'm not a gymnast and other than a one month stint when I was 7, have no experience with gymnastics. I mainly go for the quality time and they love the activity. If you are a serious gymnast, I wouldn't be a good person to ask about BCG. But my guess would be that you should shop around and find an academy with supportive staff/coaches. There are a few familiar faces that are p... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag Abuse
