GRGA Team Try-OutsWhen: Tuesday, March 22ndTime: 4:30 p.m. or 5:30 p.m.
Please sign up for one time slot via phone, e-mail or website – www.grgymacademy.com
Who: Open to any GRGA Gymnast, currently enrolled in Intermediate I, Intermediate II, Superstars and Fast Track
What: GRGA Coaches will evaluate gymnasts that would like to be on the GRGA competitive team. Gymnasts will receive a recommendation for summer placement, feedback on skills to work on/improve and a certificate for participating.
GRGA has two competitive paths, our Xcel Program and our Developmental Program (Levels 1-10) Gymnasts will be placed in either our new Xcel Bronze team class or in our Developmental Program feeder classes – fast track, superstars or pre-team. This will start in the June session.
Gymnasts placed in the new Bronze class will begin competing through the Xcel program in the fall. Gymnasts placed on the Development Program path will be training to compete Level 3 in future seasons, but will have the opportunity to compete in Xcel meets for the upcoming season to gain competitive experience.
More information on the difference between the Xcel path and DP path can be found on the website and will also be shared with those who sign-up to participate in the tryout session.
Participation is optional and does not require a commitment until the summer session.
