September 2021 Newsletter

Happy September! And a BIG welcome to all of our new and returning athletes.

1️⃣ We hope you’re enjoying the refresh of Gem City’s parking lot that was completed over our August break!

2️⃣ Shout-out to three of our sponsors – WGEM, Advance Physical Therapy, and Blessing Health System. These businesses are proud supporters of our Gem City athletes and we are grateful for their support!

3️⃣ We are excited to announce that we were able to award two recipients a full school-year scholarship for private lessons during our inaugural season for the Troy Lucas Memorial Scholarship. We are thankful for such a great community and we know Troy would be happy that more kids get to experience the gym like he was able to.

Best,
Katie Cernea
