Summer Camp Requirements
We require our team gymnasts to attend 4 out of the 8 weeks offered of summer camp. Gymnastics is a unique sport that requires not only extreme strength and flexibility, but also mental strength. With any time away from the sport, strength and flexibility are quickly lost. In addition, fear can creep in and have a detrimental affect on the gymnast's ability to safely perform skills required of her level.
If our team gymnasts do not attend the required 4 weeks of summer camp, they must retest the skills required of their current level in order to re-join our team in the fall. In addition, if they previously tested any skills on their mobility progression chart, they must retest all of the skills they've previously tested to ensure they are safely able to resume practicing at the level they left off at.
We highly recommend team gymnasts attend as many weeks of summer camp as possible. It is extremely beneficial to have them attend an extended practice time 5 days a week, and it leads to much quicker progressions.
Summer Camp is offered for 8 individual weeks beginning in mid-June and running through mid-August. Camp runs Monday through Friday at the times listed below.
Upper Level Team (Level 3-9, Xcel Silver, Gold, Platinum) - 8:45am to 11:45am
Lower Level Team (Level 2 & Xcel Bronze) - 12:15pm-3:15pm
