STATE MEET WEEK HOMEWORK — Thank you for all of the gymnasts who did their homework during the season. We were very pleased with the fact that most of the gymnasts did the homework.
The homework was designed to allow your gymnast to feel confident and prepared for their meet. This week’s homework is a bit different in that gymnasts will be offering encouragement to their teammates. All Level 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 girls’ gymnasts are expected to participate. Please click here for the assignment.
PRACTICE CHANGES — With the state championships starting on Friday, instead of Saturday as usual, we will have changes in end-of-week practices to accommodate those competing, the fact that the coaches will be gone on Friday, and many gymnasts might wanting to be getting away a bit early to Green Bay.
The following is the practice schedule for this week:
Monday — No TOPs
Tuesday — No Mini TOPs
Wednesday — No changes
Thursday — Fast Track and Level 2 will practice from 4:30-6:30 p.m. as usual. Level 3/2 and Level 3 will practice 4:30-7:30 p.m. as usual.

The Level 3/4 and Level 4 group will come on Thursday from 4:30-7:30 p.m. instead of Friday. Please wear your exhibition leotards on Thursday as this is the final practice of the week prior to a meet.

LEVEL 3 & 4 TEAM DINNER — As we did last year, we will have a team dinner for the gymnasts competing at the state championship meet. This year, we will cater in (from a restaurant and with a menu to be determined) and have the dinner in the dance room. Gymnasts are not required to attend, but should as part of team bonding. The cost to gymnasts is $10. Gymnasts should bring nice clothes to change into for the dinner. The dinner will be held on Thursday, Dec. 4 immediately after practice at 7:30 p.m. and will conclude by 8:15 p.m. Parents should pick up their gymnasts at that time.
There will be a Level 2 team dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 11 in advance of their state meet. The cost for that will also be $10.
Please pay for the team dinner by this Wednesday for Levels 3 & 4 and by next Tuesday for Level 2.
ADDITIONAL PRIVATE LESSONS — With the popularity of private lessons over the Thanksgiving weekend, we are carving out some additional time for privates this week. Cost is $35 per hour, payable directly to the instructor. The link to sign up for these privates is available here:
