#1. Are there tryouts for your team?
No, there are no tryouts. Anyone interested is welcome to come tryout a few practices. They will have a week to decide if they want to join the team before having to pay dues.
We also welcome anyone with previous tumbling or cheerleading experience.
#2. How many days and hours/week do you practice? Where do you practice?
We practice at Zero Gravity Gymnastics, located in Hewitt, three days a week. Members without cars normally have no problem working out carpools with other teammates.
Practices are held Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 8-10pm at Zero Gravity Gymnastics in Hewitt, TX.
#3. Typically where are your meets held?
Our meets are held at other schools in Texas and one meet is held at Baylor.
#4. What schools do you compete against? What league are you in?
We compete against UT, Texas Tech, Texas State, A&M, Rice, Hardin Simmons, Abilene Christian, Oklahoma, and UT Dallas. We are under the NAIGC- National American Intercollegiate Gymnastics Conference and the TGC-Texas Gymnastics Conference and we follow their rules. We compete under the Junior Olympic level 9 code of points.
#5. What are the dues for this club team?
This semester our dues are $140 for gymnasts and $100 for tumblers. This does not include meet fees, leotards, or team pictures. This simply covers the cost of using the gym. We can offer payment plans and find a way to help anyone who may have trouble with the cost.
#6. When is your season? Do you practice in the off-season?
We practice all year long, but the competitive season starts second semester in January.
#7. Do students need experience to join?
We don't require experience, however we do not currently have a coach, so there is no one there to teach new skills. Almost all of us have experience, most members have at least level 5 experience. All of the members help each other out and have enough gymnastics experience that they are capable of working towards new skills on their own.
#8. Is the team Co-Ed?
