Gem City’s Tumbling Team competed in their second competition of the 2018-2019 competition season in Canton, IL on December 9. Awesome job tumblers!
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.
Gem City’s Tumbling Team had their first competition of the season today in Rock Island, IL. Congratulations to all of our fantastic athletes. We are so proud of you! 💪😎

The gymnastics, tumbling, and all star cheer programs at Gem City produced many wins during their respective competitive seasons. We are beyond proud of each athlete’s hard work and dedication. These victories represent years of work by the athletes and by our coaches as they’ve developed Gem City’s team and recreational class programs.
