For those interested in exploring the options for joining one of our Junior Olympic, Xcel, or Trampoline and Tumbling Teams for the 2021 season, we provide complementary “prospective new team member” orientations. Please register in advance so we may accommodate you. 

Athletes should wear comfortable clothes, similar to what children would wear to PE classes. For girls, the best dress from the standpoint of instruction is a leotard but is not required at Spokane Gymnastics. Please no bare midriff, if sports bras and shorts are preferred by the student, then a fitted tank top or t-shirt must be worn as well. A tucked in T-shirt and shorts or stretchy athletic style pants is acceptable, but no belts, buckles, snaps or zippers are allowed on our equipment. No jewelry may be worn and hair shoulder length or longer must be tied back. Athletes are barefoot, except for with TNT, when student wear trampoline shoes, or cotton socks.

The prospective student is out on the floor with one of our coaches, who will assess their skill and make a recommendation. This is not a “make-it or break-it” scenario, but the first step to best serve the individual needs of each athlete. We understand that everyone has endured a forced break of several months, and we know that each gymnast might need time to get back their skills. We will proceed slowly in an effort to prevent injuries, and we also want to avoid putting pressure on the everyone.

Parents are always welcome to stay and watch from our viewing area, but due to the need for physical distance, we ask that the number of spectators are limited.

Our plan is to give plenty of options and time for each athlete to find the best fit for their skills and goals before our teams are set (August 31st). I anticipate there will be plenty of movement between the various teams in July and August; we will be flexible and accommodating to best serve the needs of each gymnast.

This is a unique year; we are all coming back from what we could not have imagined only six months ago. We are realistic. We will communicate frequently and take our time to take each step the best we possibly can.

We are excited about our expansion and that we now have 17,000 s.f. devoted exclusively to our competitive program. We also have used the time during the break to have all our team coaches training, working together, and focusing on our plan to provide a safe, fun, and productive gymnastics experience for each athlete.

I’m immensely proud of the incredible coaches that have committed to lead our team program. We will introduce you and provide more details, but the important thing to understand is we have plenty of space on each team and will add additional coaches as needed. We want each gymnast to be challenged, progress, and given the opportunity to achieve success.

Please be sure to RSVP in advance if you would like to schedule an individual orientation.  As always, if you have any questions, please reach out.

We are committed to providing a quality program that is safe. We will not overfill any training time, facility, or team. We will be structured and organized, communicate frequently, and will also need cooperation from all families to serve the needs of all gymnasts. We will establish a realistic and safe progression plan to provide support, and I am confident about what the athletes and the coaches can accomplish together.

We have time within our phases, and before teams are set on August 31st to move any gymnasts up a level if that is what is appropriate for their goals and skills. We understand there will be movement between teams in July and August; we will be flexible and accommodating.

We will provide a meeting for each team after practice towards the end of each month, June 2020, through April 2021. Also, coaches will be available to meet individually with team families, pre-scheduled, before or after practice, beginning the week of June 8th.

In between July 14th and August 27th, I will have an individual meeting with each established or prospective team member and her parents. This is intended to give Spokane Gymnastics the opportunity to provide an experience for each athlete and her family. Our goal is to understand individual ambitions and priorities and to have clear communication and expectations between everyone before the season starts.

July 20th – 24th – Team Camp for Xcel Pre-Team, Bronze, and Silver Teams, plus Junior Olympic Levels 3 and 4.

August 10th – 14th – Team Camp for Xcel Gold, Diamond, and Platinum, Junior Olympic Levels 6-10, plus TNT.

2020 Spokane Gymnastics Team Camps

For safety, and to ensure a positive experience for all team members, we have decided to provide two team camps. First, limiting numbers and giving space for all gymnasts to spread out is vital. Second, we want to be careful to prevent injuries with all our gymnasts. Over-use or coming back to big skills too soon is something we especially need to be cautious of with our higher level athletes, and having three extra weeks of phased-in training will benefit everyone. Both camps will be Monday through Friday and feature guest clinicians and judges, in addition to our terrific team coaches.

Between July 27th – August 14th, team coaches will meet individually with each gymnast and her family to make plans for the upcoming season.

Monday, August 31st is the deadline to commit to a specific team for the 2020/2021 season.

Please note, we schedule all activities and training around the Spokane Gymnastics All Staff meeting, which is the 3rd Thursday of each month at Argonne Village, starting at 7:30 pm. Coaches will remind impacted teams in advance, but tentatively the next all-staff meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 16th.

As always, please reach out if you have any questions or if there is anything we may do to assist.
