  • Mock Meet will only include Levels 3-5 this year due to limited room in lodge

o   New Parent Meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. while the gymnasts are warming up and stretching.

o   Please meet with Coach Kristin or Mariellen Voit if you are unable to attend.

 What’s happening in the Gym – Coach Kristin

The gymnasts are working very hard to prepare for competition. Or what they think is competition. Coaches are covering meet rules/etiquette/guidelines and skill progression. Skill development takes time, and for all levels. Please ask your direct coach your gymnasts’ progression. Coaches are willing to do private lessons when possible.  Although we are trying to focus on the routines themselves outside of scheduled gym time, our main focus is on setting our athletes up for success.

Not saying there will not be some bumps in the road.  🙂

Team/Level Captains

Next Friday we will be voting on team and level captains.  The girls will be informed about that this week. They will encouraged to remember that this isn’t a popularity vote, but a vote for the leaders of the team.  The team captains will be responsible for leading warm ups and stretching at meets, setting up level buddies on meet weeks to give each other good luck messages, helping with social activities and helping at the end of season banquet.  If a gymnast will not be here next week they can submit a vote ahead of time, but votes will not be taken after next Friday’s practice.

Competition

Meets are just around the corner and we are getting very excited… and just a little nervous. Please do not forget to sign up WEEKLY for individual routine learnings. Don’t be respectful of every gymnast and only sign up for ONE slot per week. If your gymnast is unable to make any of these times, please talk with her direct coach.

Meet Fees

If there is a known scratch at the time of the payment due date, you can make a note on the invoice provided.  You will only be required to pay for the meets that your gymnast will be competing.  You must still scratch your gymnast through SignUp Genius by the individual meet scratch due date.  Scratches are made until the Thursday the week prior to the meet on SignUp Genius.

Should your gymnast scratch a meet through SignUp Genius after you have paid the meet fee invoice, your family account will be credited for the amount equal to the meet fee. Only scratches made on Sign-up genius will be honored.
