Season Update

After the first meet of the year back in January, I told myself I’ll draft a post next week.  How time flies!  It’s been way past a week!  Our athletes have had some great achievements!  I would love to list them all, but we’d need an e-book not a website!  Results for all meets are in the process of being posted under the results section of the website.  It is great to look back and see the progress our athletes have made!  

Seventeen of our compulsory level athletes kicked off 2015 with the GymCats Invitational in Martinsburg, WV.  February brought about the President’s Cup in Dumfries, VA.  Level 7 and up athletes then traveled to Greensboro, N.C. for the  Atlantic Coast Trampoline and Tumbling Invitational.  This was an exciting meet as this was the first team travel meet for several athletes!   It also gave the level 8 and up athletes a chance to check out the area where Nationals will be held.  

March . . how can we forget . . .The Fairland Classic!   What a fun experience for all!  April was about as busy as it could be!  Several levels 5-9 athletes attended the Unique Invitational in Waldorf, MD.  The following week was the Maryland State Championships, which Fairland is proud to have 40 State Champions (does not include synchro) and 60 National Qualifiers (34 athletes)!   Three days after the State Meet, our level 10 and elite athletes traveled to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs for the Elite Challenge!  What a fabulous experience that was!  High level T&T on all three events, as this was the final selection event for the Pan Am Games and the first qualifier for the upcoming World Championships in Odense, Denmark.

 What’s next, you ask . . . Region 6 Championships in Martinsburg, WV.  The meet promises to be an excited one as approximately 590 athletes from 13 states plus the District of Columbia are registered!  (Should this number be our goal for next year’s Fairland Classic?)  The USA Gymnastics Championships (level 8 and up) will be June 23-28 in Greensboro, N.C. and the Level 5-7 National Championships will be Jul 16-19 in Fort Worth, TX.   Go Fairland!  Good Luck to all our athletes!
