Gem City’s Gymnastics Team competed at the Horton Invitation in Bloomington on December 7-9. It was their third meet of the season and their last meet of 2018 this weekend. We are very proud of our girls. Our Level 3 Team earned 5th Place Team Award! 🎉
Our gym held a Giving Tuesday donation event with our Team athletes. We are trying to encourage a thoughtful mind and a giving heart this holiday season. We handed out letters encouraging our Team athletes to choose an organization, donate $1-$5 of their own money, and then write us a letter telling us why they chose that particular organization. The gym then matched up to $5 for each donation. The more our kids see giving the more likely they are to give themselves. Whether they give of their money, their time, or their resources, we are thankful to have such generosity in our youth.
Rebekah Lovercheck, a fourth grader, is the winner of our Good Grades Quarterly Drawing! The drawing was for the first quarter of the 2018-2019 school year and happened on November 16. There were over 370 entries! We’re always excited by the opportunity to share in our athlete’s success at school with our Good Grades Quarterly Drawing.
Gem City is excited to announce a new Adaptive Gymnastics class for those athletes with special needs. In Spring 2019, this class will be offered for children ages 5-12 with differing abilities or special needs. The focus will be on growth and development in the following areas: gross motor coordination, sensory processing, language concepts, social skills, and being a kid while having fun!
Ever wonder if you could still learn a cartwheel or perfect your back handspring again? You can. Try it at Gem City’s Adult Gymnastics!
Adult Gymnastics is held every Wednesday from 7:45 to 9:00 p.m. It’s only $9 per class and requires no long-term commitment.
