What is expected for tumbling. This does not mean you will be placed on the level of your tumbling if you do not have the flying or basing we need for that particular team or if your age prevents you from a certain team. This is a guide only. There are many athletes with higher tumbling skills we are using as great bases or flyer on other teams. We form stunt groups and they have to work. These are all temporary teams so if you have any concerns you may ONLY contact an owner. Carrie, Lyndsey or Ashley. You can pay for a re-tryout $40 if you want but we will be watching these teams closely and if certain things aren't happening stunts, tumbling regression etc. the athlete will be moved to another team.
Team meetings are going to be:
Levels 1-2 Tuesday from 7pm-8pm
Show Teams Wednesday from 7pm-8pm
Levels 3-5 Wednesday from 8pm-9pm
Practices will begin next week. We are ready to get busy!
(it is requested you send a Parent or a representative to this meeting please for your child. No athletes PLEASE. We want to talk about expectations we have on the kids and the parents to partner with us this season! No children just adults. Thank you and we look forward to another amazing season. This season we were the MOST picky we have ever been. If your child progresses within a time period and you want us to reevaluate her after a month this does not cost a thing. But a re-tryout is $40 if you want it this week or next. Thanks for understanding have a blessed day!
