We will have a Fast Track, Level 2 and New Level 3 parent meeting in July. All Teams meeting regarding Wild Wild West Meet, etc…. Date TBD….
Wildcard’s home meet is scheduled for October 14th & 15th. We will begin set-up on October 12th and 13th and need help putting the gym back together after the meet. ALL compulsory and optional gymnast parents (and older gymnasts) should plan to help, as well as Boys and Fast Track. We will begin planning committees for food, set-up, awards, hospitality, concessions, and more – soon! Watch for upcoming blog posts and sign-ups.
The Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics Champions is here Friday, October 14th at 7 pm. I will do everything possible to make sure that our gymnasts don’t have a session that conflicts with the Tour if you are planning to take you child. Seats range in price from $59-$89. I am not organizing group seats just because I will have enough to do with the meet so if anyone else wants to take that on, let me know. Optionals – If any of you are planning to attend, please let me know – I have a question for you. 🙂 Wishful thinking: Could we get the gym set up Thursday night / finishing touches on Friday morning – then all head to the Kellogg’s tour?? Who’s in? http://www.kelloggstour.com/
Summer practice times are in full swing. Please let us know if your gymnast will be out of town. I will put a calendar on the wall in the office and the gymnasts/families should label it if they have plans to go out of town. We are having an overwhelming number of gymnasts missing from practice so there are too many coaches. We definitely understand it is summer and there are family vacations scheduled but this is also the time when we have achieve the most skills and work on routines. September 1st will come up VERY quickly!! Gymnasts missing skills will not compete until they have all of the skills necessary for the their level. Our goal for Wildcard gymnasts this year is to have all of the NEXT Level skills before the end of the September season. This way gymnasts are ready to try their new level in January during the AAU season.
* Don’t forget about the Hales Corner Library Show at 10:30 on July 13th. Meet at the library about 10:00 a.m to help with set-up and to get stretched. Wear your old exhibition leotards, unless our new ones are here! We will still have regularly scheduled evening practice for Levels 2, 3, 4 that night.
