Girls’ Level 2, 3 and 6 and TOPs Practice Times Changes: Due to the competition in Chicago for Level 6-9 girls and Level 5-7 boys on Saturday and Monday, we are having to make some adjustments to the practice schedule for the weekend and Monday. Due to low staffing numbers because of the meet, all our available staff will have to be on recreation classes on Saturday. As a result, girls’ Level 3 can come to Friday night practice from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Girls’ Level 2 will come on Saturday, but later in the day, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Due to the girls’ Level 6 meet on Monday, the Level 6 girls will not practice on Monday night. For those gymnasts who normally come to the Level 6 practice on Mondays that aren’t competing, please do not come. Level 8 gymnasts are asked to come at 4:30 p.m. on Monday.
TOPs will have practice on Saturday with Vicky and will have practice extended until 11:45 a.m. Due to the meet on Monday, TOPs will not be held this Monday.
Boys Levels 4-7 will not have practice on Saturday and practice on Monday has yet to be determined. Check with Candace if there is practice, but being that the Level 5s and 7s are on Monday, it is likely to be cancelled.
Here is an update of the changes.
FRIDAY: Girls’ Level 3, 4:30-7:30 p.m.
SATURDAY: No Girls’ Level 3, Girls’ Level 2 moved to 11 a.m.-1 p.m.; TOPs 9 a.m.-11:45 a.m., No Boys’ Levels 4-7
