Competitive Team

What is the difference between Progressive and Competitive Gymnastics?

• Progressive gymnastics is more about skill development. It is a little more laid back, social, and relaxed.

• Competitive gymnastics works to build routines, build confidence, showcase skills, and push to the limit.

Why Now?

• We have an experienced coaching staff

• Lynette Tutt – Head Coach, 30+ years coaching beginner to college level athletes

• Kristina Aschenbrenner – Assistant Coach, coached at the Y for 6+ years at all levels

• We want to be prepared to have a full team once the new gym is built. 

• We are able to practice in the Dome.

Who is able to be on the competitive team?

• In 2021 we are inviting any Level 3+ gymnasts to join the team if they are looking for a challenge.

• Depending on the amount of Level 3 gymnasts, select Level 2 gymnasts may be invited to join.

• We want to make sure everyone on the team is prepared both physically and mentally to join the team.

• Any level 2 gymnasts that are not invited to join the team will be invited to join the pre-competitive team.

• High School and Middle School students may be on the team but participation during the “School Season” is limited. We encourage you to participate fully on your school team. The Y is here to supplement and develop not compete against the school.
