SA Premier Gymnastics

Children who have participated in an 8-week Allstars Division gymnastics program may be appropriate for an SA Premier team. Depending upon skill level, gymnasts will compete on the HUGS team or the Gold team. The teams practice weekly throughout the year to prepare for local and out-of-state competitions.  Both will compete in all four events: vault, bars, beam and floor.
