Opal, Amethyst, & Emerald training groups are part of the PreTeam. PreTeam gymnasts compete in two in house meets per season, and enjoy team events such as the big & little sister program, team photos, team events & end of season party. PreTeam is also a progressive program with levels that the gymnasts can graduate into, just like in our recreational program, so there is a lot of room for growth and skill advancement within Preteam! Rest assured that when PreTeam gymnasts do graduate into the next level, they WILL STAY in the same practice day and time. PreTeam gymnasts are working on skills that are designed to prepare them to thrive at gymnastics meets!
Sapphire, Ruby, Aquamarine, & Topaz training groups are part of the competitive team and will compete in local meets around the San Diego area. The competitive team will also participate in special events such as the big and little sister program, team events & parties, and team photos.
Remember, training groups are determined by what type of skills your gymnast is ready to work on-gymnasts working on similar skills are placed in the same group to provide efficiency in their workout, to make sure they get the most out of each practice!
While gymnasts will practice with their training group, the coaches have planned ways for the team to still maintain cohesiveness. Your child will still bond and get to know the entire team throughout the season, regardless of training groups!

Meet Awards Expectations:
Coaches may or may not be attending awards at meets due to scheduling with their breaks as required by law, or due to coaching back to back sessions with multiple teams. Please be aware, THERE IS NO SUPERVISION BY COACHES OUTSIDE OF THE MEET FLOOR. Please supervise your gymnast after the competition concludes and escort them to the awards area and supervise them during awards. Coach supervision is ONLY on the competition floor during meets, which is why an adult is required to stay for your gymnast during the duration of each meet.
Additionally, please model good sportsmanship for the team by staying until all awards have been called for your child’s session. Please refrain from telling your child their scores/placements before awards are called, as we do want to model great sportsmanship in this area as well.
Special note for meets:
Before competition days & times are released, you will need to keep the entire weekend of the meet free; this means Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We could be scheduled any time over the weekend the competition takes place. If scheduled to compete on Friday, the competition would start around 5pm – the kids will not need to miss school for competitions.
Attendance Friendly Reminder: If your child has an unexcused absence the week of a meet, they will not be allowed to compete at that meet. If there is an excusable event/reason for the absence, please notify Kristen as soon as possible. Refunds will not be given if a meet cannot be attended.
Note: In the event that a competition is cancelled or postponed due to Covid or any unforeseeable circumstance, you will be notified immediately and details will be provided at that time
