BAY STATE GYMNASTICS ACADEMY POWER TEAM GYM 2013-2014
CONGRATULATIONS to all of our athletes who attended Power Team Gym 2013-2014 Tryouts! Thank you for your commitment and hard work through this process. This year we are thrilled to have over 50 athletes making up 5 solid teams. We are eager to continue the strong work ethic displayed in tryouts as we prepare for the season. It promises to be an exciting year for all!
The coaches made a decision heading into the tryout process to extend the tryout period to allow the athletes opportunities to demonstrate their skills. As coaches, we were pleased to have the extra practice/evaluation sessions to have additional time and opportunities to discuss and place the athletes on a team/level that best fits him/her. We have developed 5 well-balanced teams throughout the selection process and we are very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.
The selection process was based on several categories including:
· Collaboration of scores throughout the tryout process
· Previous level/past experience
· Age/grade level
· Choreography retention and awareness
· Jump skill technique and execution
· Consistency and ability to follow instruction
Practice times are as follows:
Level 2- 5:45-7:45 Tuesday (Must take an additional weekly class; cannot be a tumbling class)
Level 3- 6:30-8:30 Thursday (Must take an additional weekly class; cannot be a tumbling class)
