2015 SPECIAL OLYMPIC GYMNASTICS TEAM:
For the first time in 8 years, we took a team of 18 athletes, boys and girls to the Summer State Games in Raleigh, NC. 95% of our athletes were currently on our Diamond or Angels cheerleading team and were eager to try something new. We competed in artistic as well as rhythmic gymnastics. Adding this to our program has been such a benefit to our athletes. They have competed as a team for so long and now it was a chance to see how they would do on their own. Each athlete had to learn 4 or more routines and compete by themselves in front of everyone. Wow! Each athlete not only loved it but grew more self confidence as they performed and won their medals.
Thank you to all of our volunteers!!!!
We will be starting this program again in March of 2016.
