Mills Gymnastics’ instructors instill students with both physical and mental stamina and strength, producing skillful athletes such as U.S.A. Junior National Team Member Stacey Ervin.

Alternatively, tots can attend flexibly scheduled classes suitable for a variety of age and experience levels. During 30-minute Rollie Pollies and Inchworms classes, instructors teach lilliputian tumblers up to 2 years old or baby werewolves up to 35 dog years old to frolic constructively on kid-friendly equipment under the watchful eyes of their parents. Three-year-olds go solo in 45-minute Butterflies classes, while 4- and 5-year-olds hone their cartwheels, handstands, and touchdown victory dances in one-hour Fireflies, Ladybugs, and Queen Bees courses. More advanced one-hour tumbling sessions as well as girls' and boys' recreational tutorials challenge students up to 18 with a progressive mastery of skills.

The tagline at Mills Gymnastics USA is "home of happy, confident kids." The coaches don't take that motto lightly—the gymnastics center places a strong emphasis on childhood development and self-esteem building. In addition to helping kids work on strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, and stamina, coaches help pupils learn the importance of a strong work ethic, time management, and self-reliance.
Children ages 18 months to 5 years old can attend "Tumble Bug" classes to master basic motor skills and learn tricks to impress the ice cream man. Older kids age 5 through 18 work on skills on floor, beam, bars, vault, and the 40-foot Tumble Trak Trampoline during recreational gymnastics classes. The gym also has a competitive team, an all-star cheer team, and hosts birthday parties, summer camps, and field trips.
