Flip Fest!!

Posted on 6/7/2017

Competition season is over, and your kiddo has shared last hugs with classmates and teachers.  Summer is here and if you’ve got gymnastics summer camp on your schedule, I’m willing to bet there is a countdown happening in your house!

 

Honestly, I don’t know what could be more thrilling for a young, thriving, hard-working gymnast then FLIP FEST GYMNASTICS CAMP.  (I suppose the Olympics would be up there.)   But, comparing FLIP FEST to the Olympics is a bit like comparing strawberries to oranges in the way that an orange takes some work before you get to the sweet goodness, but a strawberry….just dive right in to delish!!

The dropping off your athlete for the first time at sleepover summer camp is another emotional overload for parents.  Thankfully there are seasoned parents, coaches and educators who have been there, and can offer a great deal of help in preparing.

In general, the goal is to make your round-off back-handspring as long and stretched out as possible. The Tumbl Tape is a tool that helps athletes see improvements in the length of their tumbling skills. [More]


From the Experts: The Road to the NCAA

Posted on 5/15/2017
USA Olympic Athletes and NCAA athletics go hand in hand. Last summer, of the 555 competing USA Olympians, 417 represented incoming, current and former NCAA Athletes. First college athletics, then on to the Olympics - makes sense, right? Unless the sport is women's gymnastics where the competition path most often take the athletes to the Olympics or World Championship Events before the age of college eligibility.  [More]

Fueling an athletes body should be considered the 6th event. Vault, Bars, Beam, Floor, Mental Training, and FUELING your child’s body all equally important to a well-rounded gymnast. Consider this the next time you reach for a snack or food for your child.
