We have 2 competitive teams at For the Kidz.
Great Lakes Griffins Trampoline Team
We are a USA Gymnastics affiliated tramp and tumbling team. We compete in three events: trampoline, tumbling, and double -mini, and practices and competitions are for both boys and girls. Competitions are held locally, nationally, and internationally. For information on joining our tramp and tumbling team, call our office. Note: open tryouts will be happening on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at 10:00am.
Fun Artistic Team/XCEL team
The purpose of the artistic team is to provide a challenging and fun outlet for girls who show a great interest in the sport of gymnastics. We have Fun Team levels 2-4, and an Xcel team. Both compete at meets around the area in the winter/spring, and are expected to practice year-round.
The team is focused on the four events of women’s artistic gymnastics (vault, uneven bars, balance beam, and floor exercise). We will use trampolines as a training tool (and for fun) once in a while, but trampoline skills are not the focus of this team.
Gymnasts for our team must be recommended by their recreational teacher. For the artistic team we look for strong, hard-working girls that have some basic skills, and love gymnastics! It is important that they are also good listeners and have a positive attitude. For those wishing to transfer in from another gymnastics team program, just call our office to arrange for an evaluation.
