Green Mountain Training Center opened in December 2001, originally offering training for just gymnastics programs. We offer recreational, developmental and competitive team programs for both girls and boys.
In December of 2011, we moved to our current location and doubled our facility size. With the encouragement of the local freestyle community and the support from Burton, our Freestyle training center was created. This center allows for aerial and freestyle training in a safe, yet progressive environment.
March of 2014 brought Parkour and Ninja Warrior to Green Mountain Training Center. These disciplines focus on running, jumping, climbing and creative movement through bars, vaults, walls and replica obstacles.
GMTC is the home gym to the following clubs:
-UVM’s Gymnastics Club Team
-CVU High School Gymnastics Team
-South Burlington Middle/High School Gymnastics Teams
-UVM Freeskiing Team
-UVM Snowboard Team
