So looking ahead to AAU meet season…
This will be the season that hopefully all Fast Track gymnasts and Gold Bugs 2 compete their first meets as Level 2s.
Current Compulsories (Level 2s-5s) and Optionals can also compete these meets in the off-season hopefully to try out their new levels or to perfect their current levels. Gymnasts must compete at least one AAU meet to qualify for State (April 21-23) and advance to Nationals in Kingsport, Tennesse.
Our tentative schedule is:
December 10-11 Clash of the Titans at UW-Oshkosh (not sure if they are offering AAU) USAG is $100 entry fee!; Optionals you are already entered in this meet
January 27-28 Vacation Classic in Wisconsin Dells ($125 AAU for Compulsories);
Optionals you are already in this meet!)
February 18-19 Carnavale Classic at Wildcard ($50-$75 for AAU)
April 1-2 Rainbow Gymnastics in Medford ($50-$75 for AAU)
April 8-9 Carousel Gymnastics in Plover ($50- $75 for AAU)
April 21-23 AAU State at Galesville High School OR
May 5-7 Central Districts in Rockford, Illinois ($75-$125)
June 21-25 AAU Nationals in Kingsport, Tennesse ($75- $150)
*AAU Membership is $35 per gymnast.
We have not yet received all the information on the pricing for those meets yet, but tentatively, the cost is approximately $50-$125 per meet. We will update those prices as soon as we have more info.
Fast Track and Gold Bugs 2 gymnasts – we would strongly suggest doing at least the Carnavale and Rainbow Classics and the competition at Carousel. You can then decide if you want to participate in State and Nationals. For those 3 competitions then, plan on 3 installments of about $75 plus the $35 membership fee.
