April 2024 Newsletter

This is such an exciting month for Gem City! We’re prepping for summer session and our athletes are wrapping up their competitive seasons with state, regional, and national championships.

You can explore Gem City’s summer schedule right now! These are the important dates to know:

  • Evaluation week is the week of April 8. Each child will receive an evaluation from their coach on what the best class for next session would be.
  • Registration starts on Monday, April 15. Call or stop in the office early to have the best chance of securing your preferred day and time.  Please note that we attend to those that come into the office first and then we will return calls in the order they are received as we have time to call you back.

Here’s where our teams are heading for championships:

Good luck to both of our all-star cheer squads as they attend NATIONALS later this month! Our senior squad will be competing in Pensacola, Florida, on Saturday, April 13. Last year they earned third place at Nationals and the year before they were National Champions, so we are excited to see how they perform! Their last competition they earned their highest score of the season! Our youth squad will be competing the same day but in Des Moines, Iowa, at Nationals. The youth squad has also earned a higher score with each competition they’ve competed this year! (Pssst. Tryouts for next year’s squads are coming up on May 4. More info here.)

Good luck to our tumbling team as they will be attending their State meet on Sunday, April 21, in Mount Zion, Illinois! We have 30 athletes competing and trying to qualify for Nationals, which is in June in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Congratulations to our Level 7 and Level 8 athletes that attended their State meet last month – they all qualified for Regionals! Good luck to Sylvia, Eden, and Kaylin as they attend USAG Regionals in Dayton, Ohio, April 19-21.

Keep cartwheeling!

However, our contractors will be hard at work May 15-28 demolishing and remaking our parking lot. This will NOT disrupt any gym classes AT ALL! BUT….we have LOTS of field trips and parties that book in May that we would LOVE to get on our schedule earlier this year. Please help us get the word out. Give us a call ASAP to get an available slot at the end of April or the beginning of May. We will have NO events beginning Wednesday, May 15, including Preschool Playtime.
