Like a Girl

At Performance, we like to do themes for each year.  Last year’s theme was CELEBRATE!  We had so much fun celebrating families, summer, new skills, gymnastics, and much more!

This year we are celebrating everything GIRL POWER! Women are such powerful role models, and we feel it is necessary to show the young ones just how awesome they are!

Our theme title is… “LIKE A GIRL.” This month we are showing everyone just how strong girls are.

Strong like a girl

Stay tuned to see the videos of our very talented and STRONG kids we have here at Performance!

 

We have a few more fun and exciting things happening this month!

Mock meet

We had our annual Mock Meet on Sunday December 17th!  It was a blast!! First up to compete were our xcels!  It was our silvers first competition ever and they did a fabulous job!  Our gold and platinums also rocked it!!

We do something a little extra special with our optionals and made it an inter-squad competition.  We split up into three groups: team blue, team red, and team pink!

The Ride Home

“When I got these players alone, and asked them “what was your least favorite moment in sports?” I often got a very similar and sad answer: the ride home after the game.” – states John O’Sullivan in a very informative article.

It is amazing to see how big of an impact you truly have on a child.  Whether you are a coach, a parent, a friend, aunt, uncle, whomever, children are always listening, always watching.

In sports, children are being critiqued by anyone and everyone around them.  Their coaches, the judges at competitions, and sometimes their teammates.  The last thing that these kids need is to also be critiqued by their parents.

John O’Sullivan also states, “Many children indicated to me that parental actions and conversations after games made them feel as though their value and worth in their parents’ eyes was tied to their athletic performance, and the wins and losses of their team.”

It is very important for children to have a huge support system, no matter how well or terrible they did.

Let’s go out there and help these kids be the best that they can be!

#smashedSTATE!

This past weekend our level 6-9 gymnasts competed in their State Meet. To say the least…these girls absolutely SMASHED it! We had 52 girls place in the top 3 on either the events or in the all around. We had 20 State Champions as well! Our level 6 and 7 teams both finished 4th in the state. Our level 7 and 8s all qualified to Regionals and will be training for that over the next few weeks. We are so proud of each and every girl on this team and can’t wait to keep progressing! Pink and sparkles are here to stay!!
