Gymnastics Revolution Tumbles into  Competitive Season! Oct 12, 2003

Gymnastics Revolution, the area’s premier center for gymnastics instruction, played host to teams from around Connecticut and New York on Sunday.  Nearly 100 gymnasts participated to test their mettle in the event, ranging in age from 7 to 16.  13 of these young gymnasts train at Gymnastics Revolution, and live locally. 

Gymnastics Revolution is a part of USA Gymnastics, an organization that governs amateur gymnastics in this country.  The event was a USA Gymnastics sanctioned competition, and gave its entrants a chance for qualification to the State Championships to be held in December. 

Competing in this type of competition requires the athlete to perform on four different events – Vault, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam, and Floor Exercise.  The gymnasts have compulsory routines that they perform in front of two separate judges, who evaluate and compare the gymnasts.  Beginning gymnasts compete in Level Four, more advanced in Level 5, and the top gymnasts from this event were Level Six.  In the end, Gymnastics Revolution’s girls came out with top scores in virtually every level and age group. 

Most of the Gymnastics Revolution gymnasts were competing for the first time in their respective levels.  In addition, Gymnastics Revolution has taken on eight new members to its girls’ team over the past few months.  The competition showed everyone that Gymnastics Revolution will be very strong this year!

In addition to outstanding food and hospitality, with donations from Coca Cola, Pepsi, and Capri Pizza of Bethel, the competition was noticed by many of the Connecticut’s top professionals.  The Head Official was the former coach at the University of Bridgeport, and the State Chairman was on hand as a judge on the vault.  Other top level judges worked hard to ensure that the event ran smoothly, and a large crew of volunteers took care of most administrative responsibilities.  The officials at a gymnastics meet always strive to keep the focus on the gymnasts.  Despite the distractions of good food, a clean facility, bright lights, and hundreds of parents, the gymnasts keep that focus as well.  This Sunday’s event showed just how determined a young athlete can be, and as time goes on, these gymnasts will become even better.
