It’s been a very weird competitive season for Gem City’s teams (our season started June 2020), but we still took a moment to document and celebrate these hard-working, student athletes with team photos.
We have canceled the Informational Meeting for the All-Star Squad Tryouts. We need anyone that is interested in tryouts to message the gym’s Facebook page or call 217.224.8491 and leave a voicemail by May 6. We need either your email address or your mailing address.
All of the information about financial commitments and time commitments will be emailed or mailed to you. After receiving this information, you can reach out to us with any questions. All-Star Squad tryouts (for both squads) will take place Tuesday, June 2, 6:30-8:30pm. Within 48 hours after tryouts each athlete will receive an email with their tryout status. Those that make the squad will begin summer session practice times the second week of June.
It’s a joy to work with a kid all the way up to the point of graduating from high school. Unfortunately, our graduating seniors had a great season cut short this year but we cherish the opportunity to learn and grow with them all these years. 🎓 We will miss you all being in the gym each week. Good luck next year, and don’t forget to come back and visit! 😥
Gem City earned first place in Des Moines at the Iowa Showdown. The strong performance means the all star cheer squad’s Nationals bid is now a GOLD BID! 🤩 It was also their highest score of the season with a 95.2333.
Giving back to your community is important! We held a Giving Tuesday donation challenge with our team athletes and coaches. We encouraged our athletes to donate $1 to $5 to a cause they cared about and Gem City matched each dollar up to $5 for each athlete’s donation.
Gem City’s All Star Cheer Squad had a good reason to be excited for their 8:30 am practice this Saturday—a bid to nationals was extended to them following a strong performance at their first competition of the season in Kansas City!
