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.
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.
