We're taking our Gymnastic's SQUAD to a whole new level this year, adding classes and some new exciting instructors. We are also introducing Ballet SQUAD and a Martial Arts SQUAD. 

What does it mean to be a part of the GYMIES SQUAD?
Being a part of the GYMIES SQUAD means you spend more time training big skills, as well as weekly time training core elements in your sport. SQUAD classes are longer and a bit more intense than regular classes. Being part of SQUAD also means more performing time. This past year our Gymnastics and Dance SQUAD kids performed in every show (that's 7!) as part of our finale piece. In the coming year we are looking for opportunities for our SQUAD teams to perform at local school and community events. 

Who is invited to join SQUAD?
Our SQUAD members typically have been members of GYMIES for anywhere from 2 - 4 years. Their sport is exciting to them and they want to keep adding to their repertoire. They want to learn more, and perform better. Literally! We are looking for students who are eager and willing to take it to the next level by bringing discipline, dedication, and determination to their time in class, while still having a blast!

How does being a part of the SQUAD benefit you?
Being a part of SQUAD brings many benefits. As a SQUAD member you have more training time in the gym, more time performing and by default, you spend more time SHINING.  (There's a GYMIES ethos in action!) Being part of the SQUAD leaves you feeling PROUD of your hard work and CONFIDENT in yourself and your talents. Being on the SQUAD and training alongside your like-minded peers is also immensely fun, and so uber socially and emotionally healthy for you.  Studies have shown that kids who have a good time being fit in childhood have an easier time incorporating fitness into their adult lives. How neat! The exclusive SQUAD t-shirt is pretty neat too.
