It looks like we are still in luck to hold our Meet on December 6th. We will be splitting the girls up and competing by level at different times to stay within guidelines.
Bronze gymnasts will have a 12:30 Warmup and 1:00 meet.
Silver gymnasts will have a 2:00 warm up 2:30 meet.
By splitting the meet up, we will be able to allow 2 spectators per gymnast.
Please don’t arrive earlier than their warm up time as we are trying to strictly adhere to Covid guidelines.
Please prescreen gymnasts online before practice at strivegymfit.com. Gymnasts must prescreen before every practice.
It looks like we will (hopefully) be able to start our competition season!!
We have reserved spots in the “Beauty and the Beast Invitational” on January 16-18th 2021 at the Johnston indoor recreation center in Johnston RI. Because of the unusual year we are experiencing, the meet director has quoted:
“In the event the competition would need to be cancelled due to COVID-19, all fees will be refunded. We will be following all protocols set by the state of Rhode Island at the time of competition. This could include- temperature checks, mask wearing (exception for gymnasts while doing gymnastics), limited spectators, and social distancing (6 feet apart).”
We are still waiting for further information to book our future meets as this competition season struggles to begin. I will get the additional details to you as soon as possible. We will not be collecting a team deposit fee this year due to the uncertainty of our season. In place of the team deposit fee, we will be adding a small amount to each meet to cover the costs of the team fees and any additional meet expenses. It also appears at this time that if a gymnast qualified to states last year, they would automatically be eligible for states at that same level this year. We are awaiting further clarification on any other changes for this season. Gold-Level 7 will need to register with USA Gymnastics. You will receive an email in the near future with instruction on registration.
To prepare for the competition season, we will also be scheduling a judge to come in to critique the girls routines during November for Bronze & Silver, December for Gold-Level 7. We will also be hosting a Bronze/Silver meet for Dec 6th at Strive for Strive Gymnasts only. (If you paid for the championship meet in March 2020 that was cancelled, your previously paid meet fee can be applied to the leo and December 6th meet fee.-Please check with Cindi)
Since we do anticipate competition this year, we will be ordering new team leos for the season. We need to order them as a group order and get them ordered in the next 3 weeks so we will have them in time for competition. Due date for leo payment is 10/28. Please let me know your gymnasts size and you can pay for them online or at the desk.
The bronze and silver team will be ordering the chic diamonds leo at a cost of $50.
Gold, Platinum, Diamond Level 4-10 will be ordering the ombre leo from alpha factor $145.
Due to limited spots available for the “Beauty and the Beast” meet, we must commit to who is attending as soon as possible. (All gymnasts attending will receive a beauty and the beast gift leo)
Your child should be bringing home a form for ordering the leo as well as further meet information in the upcoming week.
