Life is full of CHOICES

Posted on 9/12/2017

Life is full of choices.  Some folks deliberate decisions, others are impulsive.  In recent days, the nation has watched as devastating disasters struck many communities with an impact that was unfathomable.  The Emerald City Gymnastics Team did not hesitate in their choice to jump into action and help.  In just 48 hours, their gym community came together and raised $26,000 for Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts.


Parent Tip: You can lead a horse to water...

You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink.  Or can you?

Many parents of young athletes understand this proverb as we encourage our active kids to drink enough water to stay hydrated.  Summer heat and long sweaty workouts are a dangerous combination for kids who are not taking in enough fluids to replenish what they lose.  Water is essential for all major body functions, and key to peak athletic performance.

We know it is important to drink fluids before, during and after exercise, but how much should our kids be drinking, really??  The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends drinking four to eight ounces of water every fifteen to twenty minutes of exercise as a good starting point for hydrating athletes.

Acro Crazed!

Posted on 7/10/2017
Gymnastics and dance are two forms of movement that seem to be joined at the hip.  In the TV series, Dancing with the Stars, Olympic athletes, Nastia, Shawn, Aly, Laurie and most recently, Simone, traded their grips for high heels and finessed their way to the top of the leaderboard, inspiring audiences in fantastic displays of various dance styles.

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!!


First time at camp? You'll be fine, (and so will she)

Posted on 6/7/2017

Every kindergarten teacher prepares for the first day of school knowing they will need to deal with the emotional stability of those in their care….the parents.  This milestone for parents swells the heart and requires a great deal of deep breathing to keep the tears from spilling over.


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.
