The 2016 Compulsory Season has begun!
We kicked off our schedule with Intrasquad held at WVGS.  This was a great way for our gymnasts to become familiar with their routines in front of live judges before we began traveling for the season.  

Our 1st meet against other teams was “Judges Cup”. Level 3 placed 2nd, Level 4 took 2nd as well and Level 5 brought home 3rd! We were very proud of both the team and individual accomplishments!!  

Next up, “Begonia by the Beach”. This was another 2-day event and our gymnasts shined!! Level 3-3rd, Level 4-1st and Level 5-1st! We continue to press forward into meet season with strong determination and positive gymnasts that work so hard every day!

Here are a few photos from the meets below.  For more photos, check us out on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
