We are The Cedar Rapids Association of Gymnastics aka CRAG!
Some say that gymnastics is the mother or root of all sports, creating a physical and mental foundation that can last a lifetime. We at CRAG Gymnastics couldn’t agree more!
Serving Cedar Rapids and the surrounding area since 1973, CRAG Gymnastics is dedicated to helping young people develop physically, mentally, emotionally and socially through the sport of gymnastics.
Todd and Deborah Beyer bought CRAG from Russ and Kathy Telecky in the year 2000. Todd has been involved in gymnastics most of his life and carries his love of the sport into his coaching. This is apparent in the number of successful gymnastic championships that CRAG has had over the years (including state, regional and national champions) as well as those gymnasts who have gone on to compete at the collegiate level.
We are extremely proud of our instructors who are certified and background checked through USA Gymnastics University! Their dedication, energy and love for kids and gymnastics are what make our program so successful.
Using a curriculum that allows each gymnast to grow at his or her own rate, our main emphasis is for children to see improvement by learning new skills, perfecting techniques and gaining self-confidence. We focus on coordination, balance, concentration, perseverance, self-esteem, goal setting and FUN!
Our final hope is that as time passes, they will look back on their experiences here at CRAG and recognize the life lessons gymnastics has given them; dedication, leadership, team work, discipline, determination, respect, trust,
self-control and confidence.
At CRAG Gymnastics we put kids first and strive to BE GREAT!
