***Performance classes are separate classes. You cannot take more than one Elite gymnastics or performance class on your schedule.***
***We cannot pay for any competitive sports teams, but we can pay for instructional and/or practice time, therefore any balance above our maximum contribution is the student's responsibility***
Students may take any aerial, gymnastics, dance or other class meeting once per week and beginning the week of Monday Jan. 3rd and going through May 31. (schedule is same all year round, except for taking Memorial weekend off).
Students must also register with ESA through their Parent Portal and make a note that they are with Berrien Springs Partnership.

Elite Sports Academy was founded in 2009 by owners Adam and Camille Cole. This “one of a kind” multi-purpose sports center offers a variety of quality programs under one roof. ESA spans over 25,000 square feet and is uniquely designed to provide optimal training in gymnastics, dance, and cheerleading in a safe, clean and fun environment.
Elite Sports Academy is home of Northern Indiana's premier gymnastics center, ESA Gymnastics. We offer year-round programing including summer day camps, clinics, birthday parties, open gyms and gymnastics classes for pre-school and school age boys and girls of all levels.
Stop by and see what all the excitement is about at ESA!
Call today and have our friendly and professional staff help you find the appropriate program for your child.
*Please note: it is important to make as informed a decision as possible when choosing your student's Community Resource classes. Most locations will allow a student to drop a class after one meeting, at no charge if it wasn't a good fit for the student, but not all. Some classes plan ahead based on the number that have signed up and have purchased materials, hired teachers, etc. and there might be a fee for class time or materials given to the student if the student drops after one or two meetings. The school cannot pay for classes that students do not complete, so choose wisely; if you do not take the class off of your student's schedule by the deadline, you may be asked to pay for the class time incurred prior to dropping the class.
