Uniforms

This year we will be doing things a little differently to size, swap and order uniforms for the upcoming season. First, we will have Existing Uniform Sizing Days on June 18 4:30-6:30pm and June 20 9:00-11am. Please have your gymnast either come to practice early in her competition leo and warm-ups or change into them after practice so the uniform committee can assess if they will fit for next season. Parents are welcome to be present during the decision making. (We know it is early so if your gymnast sprouts up between now and the end of July when we will order new uniform pieces and you know her uniform will no longer fit, we can still order her a new one.) Once the decision is made, a paper will be placed in your family folder stating which items still fit and which don’t. If the item no longer fits, the paper will also inform you if the item is available to be swapped. If you are unable to attend any of those times please let Mandy know so we can schedule a time to check your gymnast’s uniform. In mid- July, there will be a new uniform fitting day for all new team gymnasts and any returning gymnasts who have something that no longer fits.

Also new this year, we will have a swap day where people can bring in any items they want to put up to be purchased at the swap and then anyone who needs a new uniform item can come and purchase an item in the swap. This will tentatively happen on July 25th. More details to come. Please contact me with any questions.

Minutes from the June Parent Board Meeting are attached. We are looking for a fundraising coordinator (or 2 co-coordinators), an event coordinator, 1-2 level 3 parent reps and 1 optional level parent rep to join the board in August! Please let Mandy or Kristin know if you are interested.

Coaches Report

Summer Break Dates:

Reminder that there is no practice next week, June 22-27  and Friday July 3 & July 4.

Good luck to all of our Nationals Girls!

Friday June 19th there will be a Nationals practice meet at GMV.

Warm up and stretch will begin promptly at 5:00pm.

Because we will be the only team there, we will divide up into three groups and all three events will be competing routines at the same time. This opportunity is designed to provide the girls with an actual meet like experience. I’m super excited we arranged the chance for the girls to perform their floor routines on a full spring floor. A big thanks to Jen at GMV.

GREAT MIAMI VALLEY YMCA  – 1307 NW Washington Blvd, Hamilton OH 45013

*normal practice at PCY for all other monarchs or national girls who are unable to attend. Please let me know if your gymnast is able to attend GMV.

 In the Gym

Say good bye to our old vault table. I will be selling the vault table this Saturday for $400.00. That profit will help us reach our goal for new equipment.

Please make sure you are communicating with coaches on your gymnasts skill progression and level placement throughout the summer. A parent and coach relationship is a key factor to their success. Coming into the gym on a regular bases provides a wonderful opportunity to get that one on one time. Let us know if you need anything, the coaches are here to help!
