Although you are permitted to drop out of the Olympics, you truly should not unless it is totally unavoidable. The Olympics is the culmination of the recreational program every year and is part of our program. This is what the athletes having been working so hard for.
Don't regret removing your athlete from this big event, their peers will be talking about it and working toward it in each class!
OF THE YEAR!
Annually, Gymnastics USA hosts a recreational event designed so our athletes can showcase to their family and friends the skills they have acquired and accomplished! THIS is the event of the year! It is everything the athletes and performers are working toward during their recreational classes. This fun-filled event is done in the style of a competitive competition without the scores or critiques. All participants will receive A Personal Gold Medal, Participant’s Entry Fee, Participant's Uniform, 2 Admission Tickets, and an Event Goodie Bag! This is a special day for all of our athletes to shine and make their parents proud. Our Climbers Aerial Acrobats participate by performing our grand "Olympic" Opening Ceremony!
Remember when the Olympics are over, classes still
remain the same. The Olympics does not mark the end of classes,
your child will stay enrolled in their regularly scheduled class.

You can submit your child's size for this at the front desk or on our website. Keep in mind that in the Red-White-Blue Program the uniforms may be color coded per level, so you will need to know your child’s level. Ensure your athlete wears the correct uniform color. Uniforms are included in the pricing!

WHAT TO EXPECT ON OLYMPIC DAY!
Be sure to come a few minutes early in order to have time to check your athlete in, get some snacks, get good seats, and sign up for raffles and other fun! The event will begin with an Olympic Style Opening Ceremony from the “Climbers”! Climbers Aerial Arts & Fitness are Gymnastics USA’s acrobatic partners. The performance will be done by beginners and advanced acrobatic students from the facility. After the Climbers perform their 7-10 minute Opening Ceremony, they will do their bows and receive their goodie bags (which will contain a gold medal! They do not do an award ceremony as they are performers not “competitors”). The Climbers are free to go or stay to watch the other athletes “compete” after their opening ceremony performance.
After a few announcements, our Olympic athletes will march in and be introduced by groups of levels. This includes preschool age gymnasts, 5-12 y/o gymnasts, our tumblers, and our Ninja Kidz. The athletes partake in a brief stretch and warm up prior to marching in. Just like in a real Olympic style competition, athletes will then go to all of the Olympic events and perform their routines one by one. Their fellow teammates will watch as their peers perform routines. Although our older athletes have actual routines they are learning in classes, the preschool age (Ribbon Club) participants will go through their Skills Course similar to the one they do in gymnastics class, as well as two other events, but this time it will be on a larger scale and on the main floor. Unlike in gymnastics class, this is their performance and their time to shine for you! Be sure to have the camera ready to take lots of pictures, you won’t want to miss capturing this adorable moment when your little gymnast is in their Olympic style uniform showing you all the moves they have!
Each event rotation is expected to last about 20 minutes, during that time each athlete performs one routine on the event- so be sure not to miss your child’s turn! Keep an eye on them the entire time. There will be multiple groups going on simultaneously and no announcements when particular athletes begin their turn. There will be four event rotations throughout the session for our 5-12 year old gymnasts, our Advance Preschool gymnasts, and for our Ninja Kids.
For our regular preschool age gymnasts (Ribbon Club) and our tumblers, there will only be 3 events. These two groups that are only doing 3 events will end prior to the other groups and have their own private award ceremony while the other groups complete their session. During the award ceremonies, athletes will walk up the award podium, receive their gold medal, and be released to parents.
It is important to note that this is not a drop and go event, there will be no sign out procedures. Please be attentive to where your child is during the award ceremony and the entire event.
After the awards, you may meet and greet with coaches!
