Important things to do this week: 1. Please have your gymnast write a thank you letter to her main coach (she can also write one to any of the other coaches of course). Please turn the letter in with a small picture (4×6 or smaller) and a suggested $10 donation toward end of the year coaches’ gifts to Mandy by April 17th.I will be in the gym Mon 4/13 from 4:45-5:15, Tues 4/14 4:00-6:30, Thurs 4/16 4:00-6:30 and Friday 4:00-4:30 and 6:15-7:30 (at the National team meeting). I will also have a folder labeled Coaches’ gift in the bin outside Kristin’s office you can put it in. (Please make sure any money is in an envelope with your/your gymnast’s name on it). If you have any questions, email me at melmer.

Team Building – Stephanie On Thursday, May 14, we will have a team-building event at Zip City (in Sports Plus) at 10765 Reading Rd.Families can show up anytime between 3-11pm and pay $20 per person (child or adult) for 3 hours of trampolines, zip lines, and a rock wall. The $20 also includes two slices of pizza and a pop. To do the zipline and rock wall, children must be over age 3 and more than 30 inches tall. Anyone over 250 lbs. cannot participate.

Some families have said they’d arrive around 4:30 if others want to maximize playtime with their friends/teammates and still be out of there by 7:30-8pm. There is a restaurant/bar within Sports Plus and plenty of seating where parents can watch their children, so adults are welcome to socialize, too, without paying the $20 to be on the equipment. Check out for more info, and watch for flyers in the family folders.

Contact Stephanie Haarlammert with any questions.

Nationals Chair – Tricia There will be a 2nd Nationals team parent meeting on Friday, April 17th at 6:00 in the Multi-purpose room. An agenda will be available before the meeting.
