PROPOSED NATIONAL AEROBIC GYMNASTICS CAMP IN LAS VEGAS, NV

Konstantz and I are proposing a Camp to be organized by a third party organization in Las Vegas during the period of the end of April and beginning of May. The Camp will bring all USA teams together in one event and will provide education for all USA coaches regarding the rules and training methods besides bringing opportunity for athletes to work more extensively receive feedback and correction that will benefit them in the long run.The organization of this camp isn't finalized yet, but we will soon receive updates and confirmation from the organizers. The Camp will possibly be for a total of 15-16 hours 9one weekend) and have a showcase (competition like) to close.

Planned to be held in the last week of April and the first week of May.

NEW WARM-UPS (UNIFORMS)

Konstantza is working with a company in Canada for new warm-ups for our team. We do not have prices yet but will look really nice, professional and elegant for the athletes. We are sure the kids will love it. The color will be black, blue or red (TBD). Soon we will get the kids' sizes to proceed with the order. By that time we will have an estimate of price for all families.

COMPETITION LEOTARDS

It is very important for all parents to try the old leotard on their children and let us know if they can still compete with the ones they have from last year or if they will need a new one. Orders must be placed sooner this year. In case your child needs a new leotard, we will give you a variety of designs and you will pick and choose what you like the best. Price for a new leotard was around $160 last year and we do anticipate to be similar price this year. Please, avoid having your child competing with small leotard as this doesn't bring the best experience on them and can cause a lot of stress during competition. In case of question, approach Konstantza or myself in the gym. Let us know by January 30th if your child needs a new leotard for this year

FUNDRAISING

This year we have one the biggest teams in the entire history of GW Aerobic Gymnastics Program. We have lined up strong and high-level competitions. We are sure that if we work together and with help of our Parent Association we can develop ideas for at least 1 fundraising per month and maybe 1 crowdfunding website that each one of the families can share with families and friends for more money to be funded on daily bases:

Ideas for fundraising activities are:

  1. Selling Coffee and donats at Pentagon Parking lot in the morning
  2. Raffle of a basket (each family try to get some free item to be put in the basket)
  3. Garage Sale
  4. Car wash (in June and July)
  5. Ask for sponsorship to Dentist, Doctors and car dealerships in our Area, ...
  6. ...

The GWPA will have a meeting this coming Sunday 1/21 @ 12:30 pm in the Community Room at Chinn Park Library when they can talk a little deeper about fundraising and the distribution/allocation of the money, ... or at least how these things work.

Next week I will send another email inviting parents to come together to talk further about fundraising opportunities.
