We have placed the gymnasts into their respective levels. We will after the ready or not’s place them in the final levels for the competitions. Please also take note that for the gymnast to do well, she has to practice at least 2 days a week. We compete against gymnasts and clubs that practice 3 – 4 days a week two hours at a time. We do understand that the gymnasts are also very busy with their other outdoor activities. We have a group of very talented young gymnasts, but that is only the start. Training and time makes them the winners they can be. We can only do so much with the time we have them. We have 4 dedicated and qualified coaches and in no group is more than 10 gymnasts. Groups are rather between 7 and 8. If at all possible we would like the gymnasts 2x a week for 2 hours.
In the 2 -3pm classes there is also some potential competition gymnasts, I will let you know.
If they are ready, we can start with 6 years of age for competition if they are very dedicated.
