I have been receiving more and more emails as the season quickly approaches! Here is some information that might be helpful.
Monday October 30th– We will have our Pre-Season meeting for any girls 7th-12th grade hoping to join our high school team for the 2017-2018 season! This meeting will be for parents and athletes and just give an overview of the season. Time and place TBD. Reminder that the high school team consists of current 7th-12th grade girls.
Wednesday November 8th and Thursday November 9th– Equipment Setup! Wednesday we will meet there after school 3:30/4pm- 6pm. We will plan on finishing Thursday afternoon from 3pm-5pm. We will most likely need all this time, so plan on being there for both days. All girls planning on joining the high school team (7th-12th graders) should be there. Parents are welcome as well! The more people we have, the quicker it goes!
Monday November 13th- FIRST DAY: Let the season begin! Be in the gym dressed ready to go at 3:45pm.
I have had a lot of inquiries about try-outs and joining our team. Try-Outs will be Monday the 13th and Tuesday the 14th during the first week of practice. You will be notified at the end of Tuesday’s practice your status on the team. Depending on how many girls come for those try-outs, that will determine the amount of spots on our team. Remember that this is a competitive team, and it is very different from recreational gymnastics. Previous experience is necessary if you hope to compete and represent Sibley on the JV or Varsity Team. Further questions or inquiries about this, contact me directly.
Flips for Kids Program– These classes will start after Thanksgiving Break. Flyers went out in Friday Folders last friday. Please keep an eye out for them in your daughter’s backpack. Reminder that these classes are for girls only, as we do not have the equipment to support boys gymnastics. Classes will be Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesday nights and time will depend on your daughters level.
I have started to receive emails asking about summer gymnastics. Unfortunately this summer we will not be offering classes. There were many conflicts between all of our coaching staff, and we aren’t able to make it work. We are very sorry as we love seeing everyone throughout the summer! Please keep us in mind for next fall! We hope you all have a wonderful and enjoyable summer!
The girls had Varsity Conference Championships last night and they took 2nd place out of seven teams! The girls had a good night and we are so proud of all their hard work this season! We had some girls really step up at the meet and the girls pulled together as a team to get us to that 2nd place! Congrats to our girls and all the teams!
Hey Everyone- We are in the home stretch of our season! I can’t believe tomorrow is already February 1st! Time has flown by!
The girls had a very busy week last week- we had a meet against Mahtomedi and an invitational at Eagan High School. Both meets went well. This week is a bye-week for us so no meets until our Conference Meets. JV conference is February 7th at Hastings Armory and Varsity Conference is February 9th at Simley High School. Both meets start at 6pm. The girls will have early release that day.
Sections is coming up on February 17th. That meet will be at Eagan High School. That meet begins at 5:30pm. The girls will get out of school early that day as well.
Now is the time to push it and give everything you’ve got. The end is in sight, and we want to end our season with no regrets!
