Gustavus College is offering a pre-season one day training camp for girls getting ready for the upcoming High School Season! Could be a very fun opportunity to work with some different coaches, and spend a day working on your skills for the season to come.
Here is some basic information–
Where: Sponberg Gymnastics Studio on the Gustavus Adolphus College campus
Hope you are all enjoying the last week of summer and looking forward to starting a new school year! With a new year comes new exciting updates for Gymnastics! If you didn’t know- Our gym space got updated over this summer! It wasn’t expected to be done so soon in the three year plan- but our project got moved up! Things that were done to the space include:
Expanded our side and built a new permanent wall
New Paint on all the walls
Additional storage room for other sports or gym equipment
NEW floor boards… NEW foam… NEW CARPET!
IT IS SO EXCITING!!!!!
The space has gotten a big facelift and looks so fresh! I can’t wait for our season to start and for you all to see it! There are still some things they are finishing, but by November it will be READY to GO!
I took a couple pictures today. They don’t do it justice- but can at least give you a glimpse of the changes!
If you’re up at Sibley before the season starts- take a peek in the new space! It will look beautiful with our equipment set up come November!
As we get closer to season- stay tuned for updates here on the website for pre-season meeting, set up dates and any other announcements to come. We are also looking for gymnasts!! So if you know of anyone interested in joining our team- Have them reach out to me!
