The 2016 West Valley Classic was May 15th at West Valley Gymnastics School.  We had 3 sessions of competition and 181 gymnasts competing on Bars, Beam, Vault and Floor.  Ribbons, scores and goodie bags were given to each gymnast following the competition.  These young men and women work very hard leading up to the Classic to learn their routines and perfect their skills for this big event!

We would like to thank all the parents/guardians, family, friends, gymnasts and coaches who made the Classic such a success.  This annual event is a wonderful experience and growing opportunity for our super star athletes and it is because of your support and help this event is possible.  

Thank you for participating, we hope to see you next year!

 

On Friday May 13, 2016 Emily competed for Elite Qualifier and placed 4th on Floor and Bars!  The next day, Ciena competed at the Hope Classic and took 1st on Bars, Floor and All Around!  Both of these competitions took place at the U.S. Olympic Training site.  Ciena and Emily are currently Level 10 gymnasts at West Valley Gymnastics School, training under Coach Paul Duron and Coach Judy Zhou.

We are extremely happy for these ladies and their amazing accomplishments!
