    Is there competitive higher level gymnastics in the area that will take American kids?
    I am contemplating a move to Brunssum, and this is a factor. I don’t mind commuting if there is something good . Thanks in advance

      I know one person used near Heerlen for a younger child, but they do have competitive groups. Most businesses here will teach other nationalities, but will need your child to learn some Dutch or German. You can search for more options on The German side of the border is less likely to have options outside of Aachen.
