Flyaways Gold Competitive Team Program
Our philosophy for the competitive team program with Flyaways Gold Gymnastics, is to develop excellence in gymnastics, to instill a strong foundation of learning, and to build character and confidence that will last a lifetime.
“Gymnastics Excellence” means becoming the best you can be individually. To achieve this excellence, long- and short-range goals need to be set. To achieve your goals, an incredible amount of hard work is necessary and expected. We are here to help you accomplish your goals!
General Program Outline
Flyaways Gold is a USA Gymnastics (USAG) Member Club and we support the guidelines set forth by the national organization. Our team coaching staff is safety-certified, screened with background-checks and hold Professional Memberships with USAG.
In support of USAG, we train and compete the Junior-Olympic (JO) developmental program, Levels Four through Ten. Here, capable and motivated young athletes typically start training in our Gold Stars program for one or two years, advance to HotShots (sometime referred to as PreTeam) when they are physically and emotionally ready, and start competing about a year later in Level 4.
We also have great success with our Xcel Team program, which is a smart choice for gymnasts interested in learning routines and attending meets but are unsure they are ready to take on the demands of our standard JO program. Girls finding their bliss in this program are often multi-sport athletes, have an event or two that is significantly stronger than the others, trained through our developmental classes and are ready to try competition, or have greater interest in pursuing High School competitive gymnastics but are too young to join their local team.
We also promote a TOPs-based flexibility and strength program for off-season training, specifically for our JO Program members in addition to their regular level schedules.
Basic Team Policies
In an effort to operate an efficient and valuable program for our members, Flyaways Gold has a complete manual outlining team policies and guidelines. All team athletes are expected to abide by the policies therein and will receive a full copy of this manual upon acceptance into our program.
