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 15 4:30-6:45, June 18 4:30-6:30 and June 19 6:00-7:30. 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 or Tricia 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.

Coach Kristin

We are getting a spring floor!Thanks to an anonymous $10,000 donation the Monarchs are officially buying a spring floor. We are so excited and feel extremely blessed, the girls deserve this so much.Lodge practice space OpportunityWe have been given a very unique opportunity to create an additional practice space starting the beginning of September. We will be setting up our spring floor plus another event in the lodge for 8 months out of the year. We will still be using the gym for practice but this will allow us to better train our girls. This will create lot me fundraising because we will have 2 training spaces. Let’s keep up the good work and get ready for some positive change.

In the gym

What a great start to our summer. The coaches were very excited to introduce our new team members to our program last week. We were able to get into new groups and to kick off what we plan be a great summer. A few coaches are leading multiple groups so we were able to keep our athlete to coach ratio down. Thank you for all of the communication and please stop into the gym and talk to your coach. You could even lift a panel or two;)

Don’t forget  no practice the week of June 22nd – 27th or July 4th

Nationals

We are in Nationals mode! The girls are working hard polishing routines and basic skills. Next Friday June 20th all PCY National girls are invited to Greater Miami Valley YMCA for a mock meet. We will be the only team there but they have allowed us the opportunity to come and compete all four events like we will in Wichita. The practice meet starts at 5:00, the girls will get a normal warm up per event and then compete. All parents are encouraged to stay and watch. no judges.

Please let me know if you are unable to attend. Again, this is for national athletes only.
