Dear Parents,

Thank you so much for your incredible support during two large events last week – our Halloween Photo Contest and our first official competition!

Our contest generated so much excitement in our community – over 50 photos submitted and over 1100 points collected by our 8 finalists! Incredible support and so much fun was had by all! Please see the award winners photos below and on our Facebook. Don’t miss the next contest, anyone can participate, even Grandma! 🙂 Details below.

Our first competition last weekend was a wild success! Over 60 kids from our team participated! We are very grateful for the parents’ support we received during this major event! You brought your kids in time, prepared and following all safety rules. You contributed your time helping at the event and with donations for goodie bags and special prizes, flowers and lunch for coaches! Thank you so much for all the contributions, we are so blessed to have such a generous community! In such a supportive, well-organized atmosphere, our kids shined and performed so well! Everyone completed their routines with a smile on their face and our team secured several first places in all levels of the competition! We competed against several teams in California, judged online via Zoom. A novel experience for all, but we loved it so much, we can’t wait to do it again! Congratulations to all kids, parents, coaches and organizers!

I hope you all will take the time to read the details below, watch the videos from the competition with your kids, and participate with your families in the Edible Art contest! Lots of yummy local prizes by local businesses which we would love to support! If you know of other restaurants or other businesses which would like to participate in our contest, please let me know.

I would like to invite all of you to schedule a time with me to let me know how your kids are doing in our program and ask any questions.

Thank you,

First Online Competition of the season!

Please take a moment to watch – and show your kids – some videos from last weekend’s competition organized by BRG in California! Over 60 of our gymnasts ages 5 to 14yo proudly performed their routines and showed what they learned in the past few short months. Some of these kids trained exclusively online since April, so it was quite impressive to see how well they adjusted to performing their routines on the large carpet! Congratulations to coaches Iliana, Ada, Masha, Maria, Lydia, Serena, Cindy and Michelle for their amazing work with our teams! So proud of everyone!

More photos on our Facebook pages coming up soon!
