North Stars Gap program
G : GYMNASTICS A : ATHLETIC P : PROGRAM
"Our goal for GAP is for every child to be able to participate in a GAP event...and show off what they have been taught."
G.A.P. is a co-op type program created by individual gym owners & directors to aid in the development of all level gymnasts. Our Mission is creating an environment for athletes to see the betterment of the sport through a stress-free competition-style experience. GAP is not created to replace any existing gymnastic division, but is meant to be an additional program for the small business to offer their athletes.
WE BRIDGE THE "GAP" BETWEEN THE HIGHLY COMPETITIVE PROGRAMS IN YOUR GYM AND YOUR RECREATIONAL CLASSES.
We recognize the need to celebrate and reward athleticism through gymnastic accomplishments, and the need for small businesses to work together and support each other.
Participating gyms will host year-round, non-sanctioned events in which all athletes from clubs of the GAP program have a chance to be successful.
WHO IS GAP DESIGNED FOR?
REC CLASS STUDENTS that want more than just your "show off day" can participate without the commitment that team programs come with, thus enhancing their experience & longevity in your programs.
PRE-COMPETITION TEAMS the need to get their "feet wet" and find out what a meet is all about will benefit in the positive, rewarding environment that will be provided and is essential in setting the stage for success.
All children will be learning simple routines (see attached Word doc. below). There will be several opportunities for GAP meets this year, at least one will be hosted by NorthStars. All children receive awards and this is meant to be purely recreational.
