The lightning bugs and cicadas have started up in the evenings, so we know school time isn’t too far way!
This gets us excited into fall classes. We start registration today. Fall classes will begin on August 25 and run until December 20. We can wait to see you there.
Fall 2014 Schedule: August 25 to December 20
We’re getting back into the swing of things after a brief summer break.
Summer classes are now in session and we’re pumped! This is a great time of year for kids unfamiliar with gymnastics and tumbling to give it try! Summer is also a time that’s pivotal for established gymnasts and tumblers to learn new skills and routines.
Before we took our brief summer break, Gem City hosted the AAU Illinois State Trampoline & Tumbling Championship. It was a great time and our kids did an awesome job! We want to say a big Thank You to all the athletes, gyms, volunteers, and employees for making the meet a big success! We are now looking forward to the AAU Junior Olympic Games in Des Moines, Iowa, in July! Below you can find individual placements and scores.
