KTR (Kids That Rip) has over 40,000 sq feet of indoor skatepark, gymnastics, parkour and cheer facilities. It is recognized as one of the most progressive training centers available. Located in Mesa, AZ, KTR offers programs for Gymnastics, Skateboarding, Scooter, and Parkour / Free-Running. The award-winning facility has been building a legacy since the 1970s when it started with Desert Devils National Teaming Training Center; a competitive gymnastics program which has reigned State Champions for the past 9 years.

Techniques used in our world-class gymnastic programs have proven to be a successful cross-over in our skateboarding programs. By practicing foundational movements on trampoline and into mats, athletes at any age can gain superior agility and the confidence needed to approach the ever progressive tricks of their sport. 

At KTR we embrace the creativity and individuality innate to many of our sports offered, such as, skateboarding, scooter and parkour. Our staff strives to maintain a safe, fun, and encouraging environment where the potential in your child can be both recognized and reached.  Our programs and facility are catered to meet the needs of a beginner, and as far as he or she may dream to take it.  KTR offers lessons, clinics, open sessions and events year round for all of its programs offered.

Through the KTR skateboard program, our skaters have accomplished two Guinness World Records, 1 Silver medal, and 11 X Games appearances all before the age of 13! As well as, skated in top Am Street contests such as the Tampa and Phoenix Am.

Children are able to start in our instructional programs, as young as age three.
