These athletes are just beginning their competitive gymnastics journey. They are asked to train 2 days per week for 3 hours per day. Each day, they will train all four pieces of equipment; vault, bars, beam, and floor, as well as condition for strength and safety and stretch. These athletes are expected to participate in 5 meets throughout the competitive season. While competitions typically take place during the winter months, training for our competitive program runs year-round, beginning in June each year.
