Please consider…. Picking the team is like putting together pieces of a puzzle. We are looking for well-rounded athletes for the competitive teams. Tumbling is NOT everything, but is strongly considered! Making a team last year does not guarantee making the same team this year. All decisions made by the coaches are final although we are ONE fluid program.
