A few of our gymnasts trekked a little further than we usually do to compete at the Coaches Spectacular in the Cincinnati area. We love this meet each year because the competition is fierce, we get to explore beyond our Illinois-Missouri gymnastics bubble, and it’s a fun road trip!
It was a wintery weekend but Gem City’s gymnastics team still took a roadtrip to compete at the Kansas City Classic Invitational. The meet was a huge success! 🎉 We had MANY personal bests & our Level 3 team earned Third Place Team Award! 💪
The final meet of 2019 for the Gem City’s tumblers was in Canton, IL and they did not disappoint. The team was lead by five of our advanced and elite athletes who earned four 1st place finishes and one 2nd place finish. It was quite the day.
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.
The Gem City gymnastics team kicked off its first meet of the season with a first place finish for the Level 3 Team and some amazing individual performances at the Paul Hamm Thanksgiving Classic in St. Charles, Illinois.
Diamond McClary, a homeschool student from LaBelle, Mo, is the winner of our Good Grades Quarterly Drawing for the first quarter of the 2019-2020 school year! We’re always excited by the opportunity to share in our athlete’s success at school with our Good Grades Quarterly Drawing.
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!
Our online class catalog is THE most up-to-date listing available. We mail and pass out printed Spring 2020 brochures to all active and inactive students each session. However, life changes. After making our schedule last month, we did have a few tweaks after it printed.
In September, we launched our “Why do you love Gem City?” contest. Using any creative medium, athletes were able to submit any piece of art or writing to express why they loved attending Gem City. We had many great entries and thank you to all that entered!
