What are “rec meets?”
“Rec meets” are friendly competitions between recreational teams from different gyms. They are non-sanctioned events where coaches act as judges. The goal is for gymnasts to meet athletes from other gyms and exhibit what they have learned. Awards are given for each event by highest to lowest scores.
Competing is required!
The meet season starts in December and ends in April. There is one competition per month. Gymnasts must attend 2 meets each season. All communication is done via email for meet information. December, February and April competitions take place at ETC Gymnastics in Murfreesboro. January and March competitions take place at Let It Shine in the main gym.
- Please make sure your email is updated on your family account.
- All families must have a card on file to register for meets.
