Our Sponsor

Our Mission

At North Shore Gymnastics Association, it is our purpose to acquaint children at all levels of physical ability, potential and growth with the sport of gymnastics in an atmosphere of safe, fun, positive learning and to help each child develop gymnastics skills, good sportsmanship and self-discipline.

About NSGA

Proudly serving the western suburbs for over 40 years, North Shore Gymnastics Association is conveniently located a few miles west of Long Lake, just off of highway 12 in Maple Plain, MN.

Our Story

North Shore Gymnastics was founded in 1974 by a group of mothers who felt a tremendous need for gymnastics instruction in the Orono community. A parent group was formed to start a search for a coach and create a vision for the program.  The plan was to have a comprehensive program that would benefit the entire community.

In January 1974, an agreement was reached with the Orono Independent School District granting North Shore Gymnastics permission to use the Middle School for its gymnastics program. In March 1974, North Shore Gymnastics became a Minnesota 501(c)3 non-profit Corporation, providing quality gymnastics instruction to children in the Orono and surrounding communities.
