Sokol has something for everyone!

Our Goals: To develop a healthy body, cultivate a harmonious and total person, develop good character, foster love of truth and justice, producing a strong and honorable person. Above all, we encourage family participation in all aspects of our programs.

We are a non-profit organization interested in teaching quality Gymnastics, Dance, Athletic activities, and Czech Heritage. Many of our coaches have over 30 years of gymnastic and dance experience. Sokol has been in Dallas since 1912 and is conveniently located in North Dallas at Walnut Hill Lane and Greenville Avenue behind the Texas Presbyterian Professional Building 4.

For 145 years in the United States, American Sokol has helped to shape the lives of Olympians, Diplomats, Artists, Athletes, and most importantly, every-day-wonderful people like you.

The idea of physical education as well as the promotion of moral values was formulated by Dr. Miroslav Tyrs, a professor of the Charles University, and by Jindrich Fugner in 1862 in the Austrian Czech lands, which later became Czechoslovakia and now the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic. The Sokol program and ideology was based on the democratic principles of the ancient Greeks and their idea of developing “a sound mind in a sound body”. Tyrs was the creator of calisthenics and exercises, placing the whole system on a firm scientific basis and the philosophy that only physically fit, mentally alert, and culturally well developed citizens can make a nation strong and give life to the honorable spirit of patriotism.

Sokol came to the United States via Czech-land immigrants in 1865. Well into its second century, Sokol continues today around the world as a vital, thriving entity dedicated to both youth and adults participating in its programs, the local communities served, and to the physical, mental, and cultural advancement of its members.

The Czech word “Sokol” translates to English “falcon” and is symbolic of the Sokol ideals: Courage, Strength, Endurance, Fraternalism, Love of Democratic Principles & Pride of Country.

The falcon is a bird known for its courage, endurance, lightning speed, sharp eyesight, and love of the great heights of the blue skies. Thus, it symbolizes the ideals of the Sokol organization of fitness, strength, and lofty goals as well as helps people to bond over common ethnicity, heritage, and interests.
