Kelsey Galloway and Whitney Schweiger are both leaving after 2/14 to pursue other interests including pole vault. Best of luck to all 3! Coach Jill will be quitting also sometime after 2/14. Peggy assures us that Level 5 will remain covered. Issue with attitude in the gym that has caused problems (across all Levels). Gymnasts refusing to do what the coaches tell them to do – Escalating and spreading. Peggy has met and will meet again with coaches to set guidelines and hold them accountable. Gymnasts with attitude/ discipline issues will be given additional conditioning, and a phone call home to be picked up may be warranted. Please remind gymnasts of proper way to treat other gymnasts and coaches with respect. Summer Camp Volunteers are needed. Age 12 and up. Would like kids to work whole week session, so they get to know campers. Opportunity to give back to the program. See Peggy for details!
