The In-House Team at Euro Stars Gymnastics is a wonderful opportunity for recreational gymnasts who want a little more to their gymnastics training. Our in-house select team trains a minimum once a week for two hours which allows the girls to progress in gymnastics, while not committing to year-round competitive gymnastics.
Being a part of this team gives these gymnasts a great chance to enhance their presentation skills and gives them an opportunity to perform!
Members of the In-House Team have the opportunity to participate in three (3) in-house Fun Meets throughout the year.
The 2017-2018 In-House Schedule will be:
- December 2, 2017
- March 11, 2018
- May 19, 2018
This class creates an environment where girls will gain gymnastics skills and perfect routines in preparation for the Fun Meets. Friends and family are welcome to attend the Fun Meets where gymnasts will perform on all the apparatuses. All participants will receive a special award at the end of each performance.
Who should participate in the In-House Team?
Criteria: Athletes must be enrolled in an In-House Team for at least 9 weeks before they are eligible to participate in a Fun Meet. No contract is required for the in-house team, and gymnasts can enhance skills through the year and have more difficulty added to their routines. For the December Mock-Meet students must enroll before September 21, 2017. For the March meet, they must be enrolled as of January 1, 2018, unless they were previously enrolled. Students may enroll at any point, but must be “ready” to be able to participate in the meets.
Objectives of the Euro Stars In-House Team
- The In-House Team will focus on preparation for the In-House Meets. Gymnasts will learn and perfect routines that are appropriate for their skill level.
- Gymnasts will practice jumps, leaps, turns, and other gymnastics skills they will need in a routine.
- Athletes will also focus on supplementary strength and flexibility work to enhance their skill development.
- A new skill must be mastered to be put in a routine. However; as skills are achieved, they can be added into routines.
- Athletes will perform “compulsory” routines. The routines will be similar for each gymnast based on their level, but specific parts will include each athlete’s individual skills.
- Each In-house team will practice on Floor, Balance Beam, Bars and Vault.
The focus of the In-House Team practice is to learn individual skills, dance elements specific to gymnastics, and perfect and upgrade routines, as well as incorporate necessary stretching and conditioning to enhance all skills.
In the fall, classes will be separated based on age and skill level. Those in In-House Select will be the first to be evaluated for upcoming spots for pre-team and team.
