Holy Smokes- HUGE Day Yesterday!

We started out with a big bang last night! Someone got closer to her beam dismount (Round off, Back tuck), someone threw a flyaway into the pit by herself for the first time, a cast to handstand finally came about, and a front tuck was put onto a medium beam!!!! I also saw some huge improvements with front tuck step outs into the pit! Great start ladies.

WARNING FOR PARENTS****** Sore athletes will be most definite*********

Welcome Ladies and Gents... and New Ladies and Gents!

Yay! The season is officially beginning in 3 minutes and I am stoked! With the new conditioning program under foot, a new warm-up/stretching strategy, a wonderful coaching staff and amazing gymnasts it looks to be a great one is around the corner! We have a busy schedule ahead of us so please be sure to keep reading the posts and viewing the calendar and checking the video blog!

Have a fantastic, healthy and successful season everyone!

Negative Nancy and Complaining Carols Party!

Since they both won the contest I shall bring in their prizes tomorrow!

Beat the Bugs

Salta is in the process of installing new hand sanitation stations. All people are required to sanitise their hands prior to entering the building (front door station) and athletes are required to use the stations when they enter and exit the gym. I also encourage all athletes to wash their hands WITH soap before entering the gym, at break, and after gymnastics. After all, you just put your hands on a beam where EVERYONE has placed their feet.... EWWWWWWW!

Because of the H1N1 virus and with flu season around the corner we are asking that any athlete with any of these symptoms stay home:

1. Fever
2. Sore Throat
3. Cough

For more information on H1N1 please click here.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

What's in Your Gym Bag?

Please be sure to pack the following:

1. Deodorant- nobody likes a stinky gymnast!
2. Socks- for trampoline/break time
3. Small can of hairspray
4. Water Bottle
5. Wrist bands for Ankles and Wrists
6. *****a roll of Tape********
7. Grips
8. Elastics for your hair and brush
9. A healthy snack- something that doesn't require long heating time as we only have 10-15 minute break times
10. A bright smile and an eagerness to learn!
