When Olympic and world-champion gymnast Kurt Thomas set up a youth academy dedicated to gymnastics nearly two decades ago, he settled in Frisco, a bustling hub for nearly every conceivable youth sport.

Kurt Thomas Gymnastics has built a name for itself by developing gymnasts who win a steady stream of state championships and an impressive number of full college scholarships. Currently, 17 KTG athletes are attending college on gymnastics scholarships.

The family-owned gym has hosted the USA Gymnastics-sanctioned Kurt Thomas International Invitational annually since 2003.

KTG offers a variety of programs for youth, beginning with 2-1/2year-old mini-athletes. The academy also offers custom-tailored programs for cheer squads and group tumbling.

All members of the 20-strong staff were chosen for their ability to work with children in a positive way. Thomas himself is an enthusiastic hands-on coach. Every instructor is thoroughly trained through the KTG program and USA Gymnastics and is SafeSport-certified.
