May is Mini-Olympic Month! This annual event takes place on Friday, May 17th, from 4.30-6pm. All class students are invited to participate in this fun meet. After march in and stretch, students rotate around all 4 events, or tumbling and trampoline, performing the routines they will learn in class. Our senior team members judge them kindly and hold up their scores. Next our team perform a short exhibition, followed by an award ceremony where every student gets to stand on the podium to receive their award and goody bag. At the end of the night, everyone has cake and juice. Open gym for 6-14 year olds, from 6-9pm is on sale that night for only $10 for students who participated in the Mini-Olympics. Sign up at the front desk. $10 gymnast. Spectators free.
For Mini-Olympics all team members should wear their competition leotard. They will finish at 6pm that night. If you normally have practice on Friday nights, or if you are on our silver team or higher, there is no admission fee for you.
New team members that tried out last month are starting on May 6th. This gives them a chance to see if they enjoy it, before ordering team leotards during the summer, and gives them plenty of practice time before meet season in the fall.
The gym will be closed Monday, May 27th for Memorial Day. We will host a make up class Saturday, May 18th. Please sign up at the front desk.
