About the Sapphire Gymnastics Program
The Sartell Sapphire program began in the summer of 2000. It is a non profit organization based out of the Midwest Amateur Gymnastics Association (MAGA). It is in affiliation with the Minnesota State High School League and prepares young gymnasts for high school gymnastics.

The Sapphire program has a board of directors which consists of parents and coaches. This board meets on a monthly basis, creates and enforces the rules and policies of the Sapphire program, and incorporates fund raising opportunities for all gymnasts.

Sapphire practices are held at the Sartell High School or Bernick's Arena. The Sapphire gymnastics program is open to Sartell area residents that pay taxes to the Sartell-St.Stephen school district. Tuition currently runs $5.50/hour. There is a required $50.00 nonrefundable registration fee. Each family is required to volunteer 10 hours per year or are responsible to buy out missing hours at $20 per hour. Monthly calendars are distributed to member families and include community performance dates and practice times for all levels as well as meet dates for competitive teams. Monthly tuition statements are distributed by the treasurer. Gymnasts participating on the competition teams will be expected to pay competition fees in excess of regular tuition costs. Gymnasts may participate in the Sapphire Program without being required to compete. All families will be expected to participate in fundraising activites as determined by the board of directors.
