New Girls’ Team Levels and Practice Times

Happy New Year!  Let’s make 2014 even more successful than last year!

New Levels — By now, all of you have received information about the gymnasts who are moving up. If you haven’t received your new level by e-mail, please let us know and don’t just assume that your gymnast has moved up.

We’ve done our best to create smaller groups so we can have 10-12 team gymnasts per coach on an event. So please come to your assigned times where possible. There are a few exceptions to this list and we’ve spoken with those of you individually.

Also, we’ve had a rash of gymnasts showing up to practice 40-45 minutes early. That’s creating quite a bit of problems for us as we do not have the means or the space to watch all the extra kids in the building prior to 4:30 p.m. Often times, a Wildcard staff member is not even present when gymnasts start arriving. The high school team arrives at 3:30 p.m. and they are not responsible for our gymnasts who are in the building. Plus they have access to the space prior to 4:30 p.m. Gymnasts who are in the building that early either need to be in the locker room or on the bleachers. We would appreciate it if gymnasts weren’t dropped off prior to 20 minutes before practice. That should be enough time to get changed and ready for practice.

Also, former Level 5s that were used to coming at 4:30 p.m. should now be coming at 5:30 p.m. They should be working with their group at that time instead of with the HOPEs group at 4:30 p.m.

The girls’ will be addressed by their new levels and should line up by their new levels starting Jan. 2. The practice time is the following for each level:

Girls’ Level 2 (formerly Gold Bugs II Competing)
Tuesdays and Thursdays — 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m.
Saturdays — 9 a.m.-noon
*** There will be occasional meet weekends that these gymnasts will be asked to come on Fridays instead of Saturdays. We will do our best to keep that from happening, but coach availability and meet schedule may dictate moving. We will do our best to give you as much notice as possible.

Girls’ Level 3
Tuesdays and Thursdays — 4:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
Saturdays — 9 a.m.-noon
*** There will be occasional meet weekends that these gymnasts will be asked to come on Fridays instead of Saturdays. We will do our best to keep that from happening, but coach availability and meet schedule may dictate moving. We will do our best to give you as much notice as possible.

Girls’ Fast Track & Xcel no change in practice time

Girls’ TOPS (price will be reduced to $35, girls will work more on competitive skills than conditioning. We feel that our current conditioning will accommodate. Instructors will be rotated as Vicky is not working with us as much any more due to a new job.)
Mondays — 4 p.m.-5:30 p.m.
Saturdays — 9 a.m.-11 a.m.

Boys’ Team
The only change to practice times is that Thursday practice will be from 4:30 -7:30 p.m.

Fund-raising orders — By now, we have received all the fund-raising late orders in. That is available for pick up. There are still some discrepancies, specifically with the coffee. We haven’t received any rainforest crunch, pumpkin spice and a couple of Colombian. We do have some extra of other flavors that if you are willing to substitute, we can do so now. Otherwise, if you have picked up everything including the last amount we just received and are still missing pasta, coffee, cookies or fudge, let us know by Saturday so we can get a final batch sent to us.
