Riverside Brookfield Age Group Gymnastics is holding try outs and level placements for summer camps and the 2013-2014 season!!
Monday, June 10 in the RB High School gym
5-6pm Competitive Team Try Outs (ages 5 and up)
6-7pm Level Placements (for new gymnasts and anyone interested in moving up
to the next level for the Bronze, Silver, Gold Stars summer camps)
Why try out for the competitive team? Being part of the competitive team will greatly improve your gymnastics skills as well as build confidence and self-esteem. You’ll train with the best coaches and develop lasting friendships!
Who should try out? Any intermediate-advanced level gymnast (ages 5 and up) who is interested in competing. In addition, coaches will be inviting gymnasts to attend try outs that they think are ready for the competitive level. The team is not open to beginning gymnasts.
What’s a level placement? For those gymnasts not interested or ready to be part of the competitive team, we encourage you to attend the level placements so you can be evaluated and receive a level recommendation. This is the best way to get the most out of your summer camp experience.
What’s the competitive team commitment? Gymnasts will need to attend a minimum of two team practices each week depending on their level. There is a one-time “team fee” of $30 and all gymnasts must purchase a team leotard and warm-up (appx. $200). Competition fees vary but are usually around $40 each. Gymnastics is a year-round extracurricular.
What happens after try outs? All students who try out will be told which summer camp they should register for. If you make the team, summer camp at your assigned level is mandatory. If you do not attend summer camp, you will need to try out again in September.
What are the competitive levels? This is a basic description of some of the skills expected of gymnasts at each level.
handstand, round off, back bend kick over, back roll, pullover on bars, nice cast, back hip circle, no fear of the high beam, jumping on high beam, handstand on the low beam
