The CLUB PROGRAM is a level-based, recreational competitive program designed to promote increased participation in boy’s gymnastics at local gyms.
WHAT THE PROGRAM IS:
The CLUB PROGRAM has a simple format, designed to be easy to understand and implement. Routines are in an optional format to allow for versatility, creativity, and fun. The program provides an opportunity for a boy to walk into the gym, join the team, and be ready to compete within a short period of time. Each level has basic building block skill requirements to promote gymnastics progressions with minimal hours of training, and a lower cost of participation. The program is also designed to provide pathways both in and out of the Junior Developmental Program, allowing athletes and their families the ability to choose what is best for them throughout their gymnastics career.
WHO THE PROGRAM IS FOR:
The CLUB PROGRAM is for any boy 5 years of age and older that walks in the gym and wants to experience competitive gymnastics. Most boys want to be “part of the team”, and using the traditional gymnastics pathways they would typically have to take classes and train for an extended period of time before they are ready to compete successfully. Because of this, boys have often gravitated to other sports where they can sign up and start “playing the game” right away with minimal time and financial commitments. The CLUB PROGRAM will give them that same opportunity to “get in the game” and be “part of the gymnastics team”. In addition, due to the lower commitment level of the program, it is ideal for the multi-sport athletes, and boys with other activities that still want to compete in gymnastics. Finally, CLUB is a great program for boys that are introduced to gymnastics at a later age. The simplified progressions provide an expedited process of achievement that can keep pre-teen and teenage boys engaged and encouraged.
HOW DO I JOIN?
Typically, athletes enrolled in our Boys 2nd & 3rd Grade classes, and our 4th Grade & Up classes work on CLUB PROGRAM skills throughout their 2 month sessions. Boys that take 2x a week are eligible for our CLUB PROGRAM competitions, typically held on the last Saturday of each session.
In the 2021-2002 School Year, our first competition will be the Pumpkin Challenge, scheduled for Saturday, October 30th. Athletes wishing to compete would talk with their instructor as sign-up sheets will become available in late September.
Each competition will include all 6 events, the ability to get scored in front of a live judge with immediate awards, and will include an exhibition from one of our NATIONAL Track athletes.
For more information, please contact your instructor during class this Fall!
