Important Things to Do This Week! – Mandy

1. Our 1st meet of the season is this Sat! Please make sure your gymnast arrives at Miami County YMCA on time and ready to go J (Levels 3&4 7:45am Levels 5 & up 10:15am) Please allow at least 1.5 hours to get there. GOOD LUCK!
2. Please have your gymnast make and turn in their Meet Buddy cards to their level captain at Friday’s practice.
3. Please make sure you are up to date on your Equipment Assessment Fees, October’s was due 10/15.
4. Meet fees for the first half of the meet season were due Oct. 2nd. If you have not paid yet, a $30 late fee has been added to your account. Meet fees must be paid in order for your gymnast to compete this Sat. Please label and place in lock box outside Kristin’s office. If you are having trouble affording the payment, please talk with Kristin.


• All of the uniform pieces have been delivered and invoices have been placed in family folders. (if you have questions about your invoice, please email Annemarie Fischer)
• Once your uniform pieces have been paid in full, your gymnast will be given her uniform after practice. (If the payment is placed in the lock box just before or during practice, we may not know that when handing out uniforms. Therefore, your daughter will get her uniform after the next practice) Remember, your gymnast cannot compete without her uniform, so it must be paid for by Oct. 23rd.

Coaches Report – Coach Kristin

2 Days until our first meet!!!!

Please pay and pick up any uniform items from my office.
It is very helpful if you initial your athlete’s warm ups. Jackets/pants. They take them on and off several times throughout and…they all look the same 🙂

Spirit wear/meet bag
We were told Spirit wear and meet bags would be in by now, yet we are still waiting. I will let everyone know right away once they arrive. If your gymnast has ordered a Monarch meet bag and they haven’t arrived, please just send her with any duffel bag. It is important that every gymnast has a meet bag for their personal belongings during the competition.

Meet reminders
· Get to the gym ON TIME! Rushing can put a lot of unneeded stress on the athletes and coaches so please plan accordingly and be prepared. Please call/text me on my cell phone if you are running late! (You can find it on the team roster) If not, I will be calling you.
· Pack meet bag the night before
Water bottle
Heathy snack
Good luck charm

· No contact with your gymnast once they report for warm up. All communication must be done through a coach.
· Get a good night’s sleep
· Have fun!
