The 3rd Annual WiOlympics

Our 3rd Annual WiOlympics held on Saturday, June 13 at the Hoboken MultiService Center was a huge success! Congrats to all of our talented WiO gymnasts on a fantastic job!!

The morning began bright and early with some “backstage” fun — face painting and hair primping. All our gymnasts had scrunchies to match their new leotards. Once everyone was ready, they entered the gymnasium level by level — Advanced 1 & 2, Intermediate, Basic/IntermediateBasic, Intro Basic & Kiddie Tumblers.

Next they moved on to the rotations, which consisted of various stations to show off their skills, including:  vault, beam, trampoline, bar, tumble track and floor skills. Each station was led by one of our fabulous coaches — Noël, Devon, Tara, Brittney and Janel.

Then each level performed a floor routine with their group. Our gymnasts worked so hard on these routines all season long, so it was so exciting to watch them come to life! After the floor routines came the awards, where each gymnast climbed to to the top of the podium to receive their medal. Smiles spread their faces as all the parents gathered around to take photos!
