December is here and so is Session II. Regular gymnastics classes are done for the holiday season this Saturday, December 17th, but we now have two weeks of holiday special classes and tumbling clinics. Schedule is listed below.

Mike’s Elite classes on Mondays are now full. We are looking at (2) boys classes on Wednesday nights from 5pm to 6pm and 6:30pm to 7:30 for Session II. This class will be 10 weeks long so anyone interested in this, please let us know. Classes will start the first week of January and will continue thru the remaining 10 weeks of Session II. Price for this class will be prorated based on 10 weeks.

Once again, anyone wanting to take a 2nd class during the winter session can take it for a special price of 40% off the full price. This discount price is only for the winter session so take advantage soon.
