Achievement Week:  August 15-20th

As athletes from around the world come together to compete in the Olympics, we thought it was the perfect time to celebrate the accomplishments of our very own ATA athletes!  During the week of August 15 - 20, all students will get an opportunity to perform a special/favorite gymnastics or acrobatic skill in front of an audience during their regular class time.  Students will then be awarded a Team USA wristband! Family and friends are welcome to come and watch!
ATA's Olympic Games

While things heat up in Rio, ATA will host its own Olympic Games.Between August 8th & 20th, all of our Intro tumblers (4-6 yrs) will experience the thrill of friendly competition. Students will get a taste of track & field, soccer and...Gymnastics!

August Safety Tip:
 

Before participating in any physical activity, a proper warm up is essential.  At ATA, all classes begin with a warm up period which includes cardio and stretching.  This time helps to prepare the body for the physical demands of gymnastics.  Because this time is so important, it is critical that your child arrives to class on time.  In order for your child to get the most out of every class, we ask that you make punctuality a priority!

Acrobatic Gymnastics Team

As Summer is at its zenith, Team ATA marches along taking the opportunity to regroup our athletes from the last season and get in some general training and conditioning in advance of our August Team Tryouts!  There has been a lot of enthusiasm and a terrific energy in the gym with athletes mixing it up during Acro training as well as welcoming in new recruits to learn the ropes, get in shape and prepare for Tryouts!  We are very excited to see so much incredible talent from our recreational tumbling program! 


























Team ATA enjoyed some seaside fun this month as well as they had an Acro on the Beach event!  ATA played host to a leisurely day at the beach, playing and funning around with Acro for everyone!  It was great to have veterans as well as some new recruits join the fun!  We capped the day off with delicious s'mores!  It was a fun wrap up to our existing team as well as an opportunity to welcome aboard new members!





























Have a Great Day!
