October Gym News

Posted by IGA – October 17, 2018

Parents,
I hope you all are staying warm and as dry as you can with this crazy weather. I wanted to update you all on a few upcoming things happening at the gym this month.

Super Saturday/Halloween Carnival – If you have not signed your kids up to our Annual Halloween Carnival you need to! It’s going to be s much fun! We are going to have obstacle courses, Pumpkin painting, lots of candy, Glowing hide & Go Seek in the dark, games galore, costume contest, and lots more. Bring a friend and come join us for a fun filled evening on October 27th from 6-10pm. Pizza and ghoulish snacks will be provided!

Rec Gymnastics Curriculum – We rolled out a new Rec Curriculum this September and all the students are working hard on the skills. We have 4 levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum. All children have started on the bronze level and as they move up into the levels based on the events they will be given medals to show their progress. Now that our online system has been updates you can log-into your parent portal and see what skills they are learning.  We will update their skills every 8 weeks and our first upload will be December 10-14th.  The staff that week will be putting all the kids’ skill into their files so you all will be able to access that beginning on the 15th of December. We have a list of skills your student is working on up at the desk so if you would like to see them just stop by. We also will have the skills listed on our website under the news section as well.

The Bell – I’m sure you have heard our new bell ringing in the gym. This is a fun way the kids can let the entire gym know they have either completed a task their coach as set before them or that they have completed a skill. Please give them a big hand as you hear the bell during the week, so they know how excited we all are for their achievement.

Other than Gymnastics – We have some great additional classes that you all may not be aware of that would be an awesome addition for your child to participate in. Please let us know if you would like for your student to try a class out for FREE!
1. Tumbling – We now offer just strictly tumbling classes on Wednesdays for those 7 and up who want to work their skills. Our Head Team Coach Cristian coaches this class.
2. Ballet/ Tap – On Monday, Wednesday & Friday Mrs. Anne -Sophie Teaches Ballet and Tap Class. These classes are for ages 3 & up
3. Hip-hop/ Jazz – On Tuesday & Thursday Ms. Khalia is moving & grooving in our Hip-Hop classes.

Online Spirit Shop Open - We now have a custom apparel store online, that you all can order Irving Gymnastics Apparel. We have t-shirts, Hoodies, Sweatshirts, Pajamas & even decals for your car.

Halloween Closure – We will be closed October 31st for Halloween. There will not be a make-up for this as this is the 5th Wednesday of the Month.

Holiday Camps – Don’t have anything to do with your kids during the holidays while school is out?? Well, we have just the solution…Sign them up for one of our great camps. Camp Gobble runs from November 19-21st. Camp Jingle runs from December 26-28 and Camp NYE runs January 2-4. Sign up for one or sign for all three but your kids will not want to miss these fun camps.
