Mixed Team Championships

This year we did things a little differently in our Optional session at GymTek Invitational. We decided to focus on the energy level and culture of our sport, and wanted to bring back the sense of unity, team and camaraderie. To accomplish our goal we split all of our competing teams into various squads. Every team was split into every squad when possible. This gave us a competition of squads rather than clubs. Every gymnast had the opportunity to compete alongside athletes from different gyms, and the rare chance to compete against their teammates that they train with everyday. 

In order to accomplish a true team "competition" we took the:

Top 3 Level 10 Scores per event

Top 2 Level 8/9 Scores per event

and Top 1  Level 7/JD Score per event

This session was a massive success for all teams participating, and we are definitely going to continue this format for our optional groups each year. Registration for next season will begin on September 15, 2018 so be sure to reserve your spot!

Champions: Squad A

Due to their being  several clubs represented in each squad, the winners signed the Championship Banner that will be displayed at GymTek Academy until next year's event!

Check out the Team Results! Squad B was only 3.6 points away from 1st and Squad C only 12.6. That's only 1 tenth of a point per routine for Squad B and only 4 tenths per routine for Squad C!
