October’s Featured Gymnasts!

Congratulations to our October Gymnasts of the Month!

Recreational Class Gymnast -Grace is 5 years old and in our Sparklers class. She comes to class each day with a smile on her face and ready to take on new challenges. Some of Grace's most recent accomplishments are getting stronger in her Bridge, handstands, pullover on bars and confidence on the "big girl beams". Soon she will have all of her requirements to move up into our advanced 4/5yr old class, Sunbeams. She says her favorite thing do at gymnastics is the floor obstacle course, plus trampoline and foam pit - of course!

JO Gymnast -Sophia is 10 years old. She will be starting the season as a level 8 gymnast but her goal is to move to level 9 before state meet. Sophia has been working hard to upgrade her skills. She is currently working a piked Yurchenko vault, a bail and double flyaway on bars, a back-handspring layout and an ariel on beam and a double tuck and 1 1/2 front twist on floor. These are huge upgrades from competing level 6 last year! Sophia would not be where she is today without her being extremely self motivated and driven! She sets goals several weeks out and tries hard to stick to the deadlines she sets for herself.

Xcel Gymnast -Madison J. from Xcel Platinum is the October gymnast of the month. She is 14 years old and a freshman at IAM. Madison was chosen because of her hard work and dedication at practice. She is always willing to lead and constantly challenging herself to be the best she can be. She is excited to show off some new skills this year at competition. On beam her switch leap/wolf jump & cartwheel/roundoff. For floor she is doing a switch side leap connected to a straddle jump and is hoping to do her front layout front tuck by the end of the season.
