WEST ALLIS PARADE — The West Allis Fourth of July Parade is on Thursday, July 2 at 7 p.m. As a result, there is no team practice for any level. Xcel will be making up their practice. No other levels will be made up as we have offered extra practices for the summer.
We are space number 101 and we are at the very back of the parade. They do ask that everyone be lined up by 6:30 p.m., however, given the fact that we are near the back, if everyone starts coming by 6:45, we will be OK with that. Please wear a Fourth of July leotard, a purple exhibition leotard or a Wildcard t-shirt. If it is cool, wearing Wildcard warmups or sweatshirts are ok.
We will be lined up along 77th Street between Greenfield and Pierce (probably closer to Pierce). The parade runs along Greenfield Ave. east to 70th St. and proceeds south to National, ending at Veterans Park. There is a little festival after the parade. Please promptly pick up your child at the end of the parade.
Don’t forget about the Wauwatosa, Brookfield and Butler parades on July 4. If any compulsory level gymnast is interested in switching to the Brookfield parade, please let us know. Information on those parades is available here.
BUTLER PARADE — Line up for the Butler Parade begins at 1:30 p.m. at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 12801 W. Fairmount Ave. The parade begins at 2 p.m. We are lineup space no. 9 (very front of the parade), so please be on time. The parade begins at 2 p.m.
The parade route starts west on Fairmount and goes to 132nd St. From there it goes south three blocks to Hampton. It turns east on Hampton and goes to 127th St. and turns north on 127th to Frontier Park where the parade ends.
AAU JUNIOR OLYMPICS — The deadline for AAU Junior Olympics registration is this week. Please let us know if you plan on competing. So far, only a handful of gymnasts are registered. You can register or reconfirm at the front desk.
