About Cardinal Gymnastics Academy

Cardinal Gymnastics has been serving Ames and Central Iowa for over thirty years. Cardinal was founded as a way to provide gymnastics opportunities to the young people of Ames who had very few gymnastics opportunities. Over the years the club has grown tremendously and many successful young athletes have passed through our doors. In 2006 CGA was purchased by Jay and Mary Ronayne. Jay Ronayne is the Head Gymnastics Coach at Iowa State University and Mary is the Director of Gymnastics Operations at ISU. The Ronaynes are proud to continue to provide gymnastics opportunities to hundreds of young people every year at Cardinal Gymnastics.

The tremendously talented instructor and coaching staff of Cardinal are pleased to offer the finest instruction and coaching to your child. They understand the importance of building a foundation of fitness in a young person's life. Everyone here at Cardinal feels that Gymnastics is one of the best ways to build self-esteem, confidence, social skills and a host of other important life-skills. Whether your child is a recreational athlete or a potential Olympian...we provide the best environment possible for his/her development.


The mission for Cardinal Gymnastics is to provide the highest quality gymnastics related services to the families of Central Iowa.
