Girls’ Level 2 Updated Practice Schedule — Girls’ Level 2 parents and gymnasts, due to the early session for the Level 3s on Saturday, we are moving the Level 2 practice from Saturday to Friday night. Normally, meets have the Level 2s scheduled first on Saturday so we don’t anticipate moving them often, but in this case we do. So, the Level 2s will practice on Friday, Sept. 27 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. THERE WILL BE NO LEVEL 2 PRACTICE ON SATURDAY, SEPT. 28.
Additionally, due to the fact that the next weekend there is no competition on Saturday, we are keeping the Level 2 practice on Saturday instead of on Friday. We previously posted that there would be practice for the Level 2s on Friday, Oct. 4, but they will have their regularly scheduled practice on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 9 a.m.-noon.
The updated Level 2 schedule is (other practice times remain the same):
Friday, Sept. 27: Level 2s practice 4:30-7:30 p.m.
Saturday, Sept. 28: no Level 2 practice
Friday, Oct. 4: no Level 2 practice
Saturday, Oct. 5: Level 2s practice 9 a.m.-noon
Girls’ Level 3 Practice on Friday — Due to the early morning session on Saturday, Sept. 28, we are ending the Level 3s practice on Friday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m. Parents should pick their child up then, take them home, get them fed, and get them a good night’s rest in preparation for the next day’s meet. Level 3 gymnasts should not be at Open Gym on Friday.
Shoulder Bags — Due to the large amount of girls’ coming to the meet last week without a gym bag or with a bag that didn’t look like they belonged to a team, we have made small shoulder bags available for only $5. Gymnasts should not bring anything other than this shoulder bag, a Wildcard gym bag or a Wildcard back pack on to the floor for meets. These bags are economical and should hold a warm-up and some small items (probably won’t hold shoes other than flip flops). These aren’t huge, so don’t expect to pack a lot into these bags, but they will represent Wildcard Gymnastics well. They are available at the front desk and in the pro shop.
Boys’ Warm-Ups — After much deliberation, we have finally decided on a boys’ warm-up for the upcoming season (and hopefully for at least two seasons). The previous warm-ups we have are no longer being made and the stock is unavailable. We expect these designs to be available for a while, so we should get at least two seasons out of them. These are soccer warm-ups so they are designed sharply. The top is mostly purple with black areas and white piping (see at right). The bottoms are all black with white piping. The material is fairly heavy and will be good for winter competition season. The costs are $82 for youth sizes and $85 for adult sizes (this includes all embroidery, shipping and taxes). They are available in typical youth sizes and adult sizes. We have the youth small in stock. Please have these paid for by October 10 so we can place the order and have them in time for the start of meet season in December. We have one Youth Small in stock to help with sizing. The youth small seems to be kind of big.
