Gymnastics, unlike other sports, requires a year-round commitment for continuous skill development. For most of our teams, the competitive season is from October through April. During this time, our boys and girls teams compete in approximately eight meets, which are held throughout Illinois and neighboring states. We try to attend competitions within a three-hour drive of Peoria but this is not always possible.
Summer months are crucial for skill development. This is when we concentrate on building strength, flexibility and learning the skills needed for the following competitive season.
The girls on our Jump Stars team have the option of competing in the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Program or USA Gymnastics Xcel program.
