Gem City tumblers competed at their third meet in Macon, Illinois, on January 27. We are super proud of our tumblers and their performances. Special shoutout for two of Gem City’s Advanced athletes, Maddy and Rylee, who took the top two spots on the podium today in their group.
Gem City Gymnastics & Tumbling offers quality coaching centered on safety, quality instruction, and your child’s well-being. The choices in the tri-state area for preschool and school age children to begin their tumbling, gymnastics, and cheer careers is plentiful and choosing the right place for your child is key to their future success.
Around the gym, you’ve probably noticed a few new faces and some returning faces in new coaching roles.
Gem City is excited to welcome coaches Calvin Cookson (tumbling, kinder gem), David Boden-Shackleton (parkour), Paige Haller (gymnastics, tumbling), Ellie Lock (tumbling, kinder gem), Kenzie Scheufele (gymnastics, tumbling), and Dre Spradlin (parkour).
Spring session begins Wednesday, January 2! We have classes plus two new programs to add in 2019 along with our highly attended Adult Gymnastics and Preschool Playtime.
Gem City’s Tumbling Team competed in their second competition of the 2018-2019 competition season in Canton, IL on December 9. Awesome job tumblers!
Our gym held a Giving Tuesday donation event with our Team athletes. We are trying to encourage a thoughtful mind and a giving heart this holiday season. We handed out letters encouraging our Team athletes to choose an organization, donate $1-$5 of their own money, and then write us a letter telling us why they chose that particular organization. The gym then matched up to $5 for each donation. The more our kids see giving the more likely they are to give themselves. Whether they give of their money, their time, or their resources, we are thankful to have such generosity in our youth.
Gem City’s Tumbling Team had their first competition of the season today in Rock Island, IL. Congratulations to all of our fantastic athletes. We are so proud of you! 💪😎
