Happy Holiday/New Year

Hope everyone is enjoying their break. It has been a much needed time off! I know many of you are traveling so hopefully you are healthy and enjoying the sunshine wherever you are!

We will have practice tomorrow the 30th from 8-10am, and then Wednesday the 31st from 8-10am.

We have added an optional practice with Eric. He has expressed interest in adding an additional practice for anyone interested. It will be Saturday January 3rd from 8:45am-12pm. This will be a longer practice, similarly to what we did over thanksgiving break. He has some great ideas, drills and tools he wants to focus on during this practice. It will also be a ย great time for those of you who have been out of town to maybe get some practice in before we are back on the 5th. Please bring a light snack and water for this additional day.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in the new year! ๐Ÿ™‚

End of Week Wrap Up

This week has flown by! Can’t believe the meet is already tomorrow!

Some highlights from the week-

*Spotter- We have found a spotter- His name is Eric Bernier. He is coming to us from coaching the UW-La Crosse gymnastics team, as well as working at Mini Hops. He is with us on a part-time basis and we are very lucky to have him. He is very talented, and comes highly recommended from coaches in our conference and section. He was with us on Monday and Tuesday of this week and will join us again next week. If you see him around say hello ๐Ÿ™‚

* No practice this Friday(12th) and the Bell Ringing for the Salvation army has been cancelled. Questions contact me directly.

* Meet tomorrow(Thursday) at Simley. Some of you traveled there last week for the invitational, but the school is going through some construction so please follow the directions below. The meet will officially begin at 6:30pm. March in is typically at 6:15. The bus will leave Sibley at 4:40. The girls need to be dressed and ready to go at 4:30pm. This is a JV and Varsity Conference meet. Please remember everything for warm ups and competing.
——– Simley Directions: Judges, coaches and fans should park in the student parking lot and then enter the building through door โ€œBโ€.

* Holiday break- Here is the schedule for Holiday Break. We realize that many families travel, or have multiple places to be during this break. Please communicate with the coaches to let them know if and when you will be attending. Practice is still needed over this break, and it can be a great time to increase and work towards more difficulty in their routines.ย winter break sched 2014
