Learning the Planche

Here is a great video for teaching and learning the planche.  You can do it at home it's so easy.  Not really.  It's pretty hard but you don't need a lot of equipment.  Good luck. 


Okay.  I know I am a bit behind on uploading pics and stuff to all of my media locations.  Just getting caught up.  Here is the Day 2 draw winner from the I LOVE GYMNASTICS WEEK draw.  Congratulations Ioana Luchain of the Elite Acrobatic Gymnastics group.

Summer Training Weeks Off

Please note that the Acrobatic Gymnastics Program will be taking the last two weeks of August off this summer.  This means that there will no acro practices during the following weeks of August:

August 20th to 24th
August 27th to 31st

Fall Schedule training will begin September 5th, 2012.

Please plan your family vacation around these two weeks if you can.  

As well remember that we require a 50% attendance during the summer training weeks in order to be permitted to remain in the program.  Those athletes who do not attend a minimum of 50% of summer training will invited to leave the program to make space for those athletes on the waiting list, who can commit to the training requirement.

March Break Acro Schedule Notes

The viewing area will be closed for Sunday, March 11th and after 5:00pm Monday through Thursday of the March Break.  Classes will be running but parents will not be permitted to sit in the viewing area of the club.  Only athletes will be permitted into the gymnastics club.

If you will be away let the coaches know.

If you need to take your child out early and the viewing area is closed you should let the coaches know in advance.

If you are late to the class bang on the back door as we will not hear you at the front sliding glass doors.

If the gym is closed at the beginning and end of the class then the athletes will be ushered into and out of the club via the sliding glass doors.

If there is an emergency and you need to get your child out of class early also bang on the back door to catch our attention.

Thanks for your cooperation.
