There is an annual training commitment of 6 – 25 hours a week (depending on level) to be part of the JO team as well as additional financial expenditures and requirement to travel within the state of Washington and outside the state for competitions. The competitive season runs roughly November – May.
We are committed to providing a progressive program that is successful while maintaining a positive environment. To help create this positive environment, SGA works closely with Tammra Bode, Mental Skills Consultant, on education through group games and lectures with the gymnasts, coaches and parents. We also have the gymnasts work with our in-house dance teacher to incorporate the necessary ballet and dance techniques required in artistic gymnastics.
