This is a special opportunity that has never happened so I encourage everyone to participate. CGA has equipment that our girls do not have access to so, it’s a great way to work on skills that they may be struggling with or skills for the next level. We are renting out the entire facility so our girls will have access to ALL of the equipment.

You may pay ahead of time or the day of.

A wavier is also attached and required at entry.Registration-Form-front-2014-2015

Treasurer – Annemarie


Please be sure to scratch on SUG, even if you have let Kristin know your daughter will not be competing. This includes those who are competing high school gymnastics. This is how your account gets credited for missed meets.

Family Account Statements

Updated Family Account statements are in family folders. Please review carefully and email me at [email protected] with any questions. Please note that 2nd half of the season meet fees (2 meets @ $15 and Districts @ $35) are due Jan 18. I have reflected this charge on your Family Account statement, so please make a deposit by Jan 18 if you don’t have enough in your account to cover this. (If your gymnast ends up scratching one of these meets, a $15 credit will be put back in your account after the meet date.)

If You Have Multiple Kids on the Team – Please Read!

I mistakenly only charged you for 1 set of 2nd half meet fees on the statement I put in your folder last week. If you have multiple kids on the team please add another $65 due for each kid. I will put revised statements in folders this weekend. Sorry for the error!
