North Thurston~River Ridge~Timberline
The 2018-2019 gymnastics season is coming!
We will compete against other area high schools and have the opportunity to qualify for District Meets and perhaps even the State Meet in the Tacoma Dome in February. During the regular season we will compete together as one team (RRHS, THS, NTHS), but as gymnasts qualify for Districts or State later in the season, they will represent their own individual schools.
**First Day of Practice will be November 12th, 2018**
If you are interested please turn your paperwork into your school ASB office before the first day of practice! You may not workout until all required paperwork is turned in! The first day of practice will be held from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at Black Hills Gymnastics Center located at 7961 A 29th Avenue NE Lacey, WA 98516. Assigned teams (JV or Varsity) will be announced after the first week of practice.
*PLEASE NOTE: EVERYONE NEEDS TO COME TO ALL PRACTICES THE FIRST 3 WEEKS IN ORDER TO GET ENOUGH PRACTICE DAYS IN and ROUTINES CHOREOGRAPHED BEFORE THE FIRST MEET!!!!*
After the first 3 weeks, Varsity will practice 4 times/week and JV will practice 3 times/week. We will let you know your assigned days later.
**Gymnasts must have a mandatory of 15 practices completed before they are eligible to compete. The first meet is December 7th.**
We will size for uniforms during the first week of practices so it is crucial that you show up! We need to order uniforms ASAP so we get them in time for our first meet in December!
- Warm-ups jackets and backpacks will be issued out to you. They were paid for by the district and will need to be returned at the end of the season.
- Competition leotards are mandatory for both JV & Varsity and will need to be purchased by each individual for hygiene purposes. They will obviously be yours to keep at the end of the year. They will cost approximately $140 dollars. I will do my best to keep the costs down to a minimum. Money for the leotards will be due during the first week of practice.
- A “Sports Spirit Pack” will be put together for those who would like to order additional attire like sweatshirts, jackets, sweats, t-shirts, shorts, etc.—you may pick and choose what you’d like to buy. Keep in mind these items are not required!
