During our recent trip to Florida to learn the new compulsory routines, we were able to collaborate with coaches from CSA in Whitewater and J.E.T.S. in Minnesota. We have arranged for their gymnasts and coaches to join us in learning/teaching the new routines to our gymnasts.
The girls will have the opportunity to focus on the new floor and beam routines and have multiple coaches working on the specific positions and shapes designated in the routines. After seeing these presented, we can tell you that they are much harder than the previous routines. There is a significant emphasis on the artistry which is going to be very challenging for the younger gymnasts!
This compulsory clinic will be held Thursday, June 20th and Friday, June 21st at Wildcard. The clinic will start at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday and go through until 2:00 p.m. Friday. The gymnasts attending the clinic will be spending the night at the gym for some team bonding, fun, and wind-down time. The other gymnasts who are coming from CSA and J.E.T.S will be spending the night too.
Due to the complexity of the new routines we are strongly recommending that each compulsory gymnast attend this camp because this is really the only time that we will be teaching the routines in full. After that, a private lesson will need to be scheduled to learn the routine. The cost will be $50 for Wildcard gymnasts (the out-of-town teams are paying $100 per gymnast) and will cover all gym fees, coaches’ fees for the guest coaches, lodging and food for each gymnast. Wildcard will be covering 100% of the actual clinic fee.
The Optionals are also being extended the invitation to work with the J.E.T.S. coaches and work with other Optionals. This is a great opportunity for them to have some team bonding and a chance to train with some new gymnasts/coaches. The cost for Optionals will be $25.
Again we want to reiterate that this clinic will be extremely important for your gymnast to attend.
Please feel free to contact Amy or Alie with any further questions. Please make sure to register for the clinic in advance.
