Posted by IGA – April 02, 2018

We are so excited about our Spring Showcase coming up in 8 weeks. Our Candy Land themed Showcase will be Saturday, May 26th.  We will have the classes broken up into Sessions and our “Save the Date Cards” will be going out in the next few weeks to let you all know exactly what session your children will be in. The cost for the showcase will be $25 and that fee will be charged to your account on Tuesday, May 1st with your May tuition. If you do not want your child to participate in the showcase you will have until April 28th to stop by the office and sign the non-participation form, otherwise we are going to plan for all students to participate and your account will be charged. The kids have been working really hard learning skills and routines and we want to showcase their success in front of all their family. The kids will be receiving certificates, medals and we will have a reception after with light refreshments and a fun photo opp! Bring your cameras, come early, and watch proudly as your gymnast performs on all the different events! Please make sure the girls have their hair up, a leotard on without a skirt; boys need to be wearing their Irving Gymnastics t-shirt with black or red shorts. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to get a good spot!  There will be a cash only fee of $1 per person at the door – gymnasts will not be charged at the door. We will be raffling off some great prizes as well. A FAQ will be sent out closer to the Showcase date to hopefully answer any questions you may have. But as always, feel free to email the office with any questions.

There will be NO GYM classes held on Monday, May 14th. There are 5 Mondays during the month of April that will make up for this. Any student enrolled after April can schedule a makeup in the office.

Tryouts for our upcoming 2018 Gymnastics Team will be on Monday, May 14th from 5:30-8:30pm. Tryouts are for any child who is currently enrolled in our program that is not already on our team. The girls will need to be dressed in a leotard with their hair securely pulled out of their face and have a water bottle with them. Students do not have to be in our current Pre Team class to try out. No parents will be allowed in the gym during tryouts. Please note that not every child that tries out will make the team. If they do not make the team this year they can stay in a class and work hard and tryout again next year. There will be many factors that go into our decision as to who makes the team. It will not only be based on skill, but attitude, motivation, and willingness to learn will play a big part in our decision. We will have an informative meeting about team on Tuesday, April 24th @ 6:00pm in the gym. If your child is planning on trying out for team it will be mandatory for you to attend. A skill sheet can be picked up in the office so you can see the skills we will be looking for but remember that skills should only be practiced during gymnastic classes.

SUMMER CAMP! We will be sending out all of our summer camp information next week so please be on the lookout for that!

Super Saturday will be April 21st, from 6:00pm-10:00pm. Sign up will be in the office starting Monday the 9th. It is $25 for the first student and a $5 discount for each additional student. (ex: $25 for 1 student, $45 for 2 students and $60 for 3 students). There will be pizza provided for all attendees. Remember that if your student is not on the sign up list by Thursday, April 19th, there will be an additional $5 charge at the door.

Sincerely, Mrs. Shelly & the IGA Staff
