Welcome to KGT, a non-profit, parent-owned, parent operated gym.
Kokokahi Gymnastics Team is the oldest gymnastics school in Hawai’i. It was founded in 1969 as part of Kokokahi YWCA on Kaneohe Bay Drive. Due to increased enrollment, and a commitment to gymnastics classes, a group of parents formed the Kokokahi Gym Team Association, Inc. in 1971. In order to expand its programs, KGT moved in 1983 to its present facility on Kamehameha Highway in Kaneohe.
KGT was incorporated in 1978 as a non-profit, educational organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors that is made up of Active, Associate, and Invited Members. Directors are elected for one-year terms at the annual meeting which is currently held in September.
Volunteer parents and friends of KGT perform many of the day-to-day activities necessary for the successful operation of the gym. A staff of professional, certified coaches are responsible for KGT’s programs, classes, and team training.
Today we offer a wide range of gymnastics classes including recreational classes for boys and girls ages 12 months and up. We also offer tumbling classes, back handspring class, and even a movement class for kids with special needs. In addition to recreational classes, we have competitive teams including Xcel and JO Levels 3-10. We also periodically hold clinics with our team girls, camps during school breaks, and rent out the gym for birthday parties. To find out more information regarding classes, camps, clinics and birthdays, or to sign up for a free trial class please contact us at 808-235-6866 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of July 23, 2020, by order of the Mayor of our City & County of Honolulu face masks are required for everyone who enters our facility, including gymnasts before, during, and after class.
Mahalo for your understanding!
To eliminate unnecessary contact, our lobby is closed to parents at this time. We offer an exception to ONE Gymmini parent, but please try not to bring in siblings or others who are not participating in class.
Because the lobby is closed we ask that ALL tuition be paid online or a check can be sent in the mail. If your tuition is not paid before the first class of the month your child will not be allowed to participate.
July 7, 2020
As always, the health and safety of our gymnasts is of the utmost importance here. We are taking all precautionary measures to ensure the cleanliness of our gym is up to standard.
We continue to screen all gymnasts, coaches, and staff every time they enter the gym. The screening includes a temperature check, health questions, and visible health check. They are asked to wash hands immediately and water bottles are sanitized. All coaches and staff are required to wear masks.
After every rotation of event in each class all equipment is cleaned and sanitized.
We took all recommendations from the CDC, Governor’s office, and USAG into consideration when creating our current schedule. Class sizes are much smaller than normal and much more spread out throughout the day to allow for time to clean in between classes. At any given time, the number of people in our gym is well below the mandated capacity for the size of our facility.
Open Air Facility
We are so lucky to live with the best weather on the planet and thus, always able to keep all 5 of our rolling bay doors open during practice times. This is just another added benefit as opposed to relying on the recycled air of enclosed facilities.
As we have not had any cases of Covid in our gym, we will continue to operate on our modified schedule and have added Dance Camp and Summer Camp to our July calendar. We are also able to schedule birthday parties again if there are less than 30 people attending.

Our mission at Kokokahi Gym Team Association, Inc. (KGT) is to develop the athlete’s physical strength, and mind to enhance their self-confidence, self-esteem, discipline, and personal character through the sport of gymnastics.
Kokokahi prides itself in creating a safe environment to help shape our gymnast(s) into a physically, mentally, and socially strong individual by maintaining an environment and staff that is our Koko ‘Ohana.
Our goal is to make the sport of gymnastics a fun, safe, and positive activity for all students and to train our athletes in a positive and challenging environment. Coached by experienced and professional individuals passionate about gymnastics.
Our program is designed to develop body awareness, discipline, and the technical skills required for every level of competition.
Gymnastics is as much of a physical sport as it is a mental sport. Our program is designed to develop athlete’s mental toughness as it relates to gymnastics, but also utilize these skills in their lives outside of the gym.
