Our Level 5 athletes practice up to five times a week at practice and then usually attend one-on-one lessons throughout the season to perfect certain skills. Each athlete had to earn a 34.00 All-Around score at a qualifying invitational earlier in the season.  Gem City’s Level 5 girls attended four invitationals this season throughout Illinois and Missouri.

Coaches are Jacob Huff, Hope Huff, and Sarah Shumake.  You can read more about Gem City’s gymnastics program and find our meet schedule here.
