Summer Camps: We will once again be offering summer camps at both The Avenue and The Farm. Our day camps and End of Summer Bash will be held at the Avenue and our annual Team Camp will be held at The Farm. Sign-ups and payments can be done online. To view camp flyers, head to www.amkmgymnastics.com, and use the Camps page!
Summer Classes at The Avenue: The Avenue recreational and team classes are now open for registration through your online portal! As a reminder, you can find schedules, class descriptions, and more on our website at amkmgymnastics.com!
Please note, there is a change for our Pre-team gymnasts. Starting summer 2022, Pre-team students will need to enroll in at least one additional class of choice in addition to the Pre-team class.
Team gymnasts in Levels 1-3 are required to attend a minimum of one two-hour class, and gymnasts Level 4 and Xcel must attend a minimum of two two-hour classes for the summer. This does allow team hours to be completed in a single night. That said, we do still recommend multiple nights if possible. We are offering four 2-hour class options with mixed levels running on Mondays and Thursdays (up to a total of 8 hours) - there are no set times for specific levels over the summer. These team classes will focus on uptraining for the upcoming season. Level placements will be officially made August 19th and we will resume Level based classes for the school year session (these will run Monday/Thursday for the school year also!). Each 2-hour class is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis to all levels. We recommend signing up early though because we have limited space in each class offering. As always, we encourage gymnasts to attend more than the minimum hours but understand that summer is a busy time for families. Also, we do have additional Open Team Class options on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
Summer Classes at The Farm: In an effort to better align our class offerings and continue to offer strong programming, we have made some adjustments to class schedules at the Farm. You can find schedules, class descriptions, and more on our website at amkmgymnastics.com! Note, team gymnasts training at the Farm do have to commit to a set schedule. The only exception to this is gymnasts enrolled in our Unlimited Class Option- spaces are limited for the Unlimited Option- Unlimited Class Option at The Farm is now FULL!
Starting in the Summer 2022 and moving forward, gymnasts in Level 3 and below will not have an option to train at the farm unless they are enrolled in the Unlimited Class Option.
AMKM National Apparel: We will be offering Nationals apparel for AMKM Gymnasts & Families! The orders will be run on an online store with P&P Products. This will run May 11th-25th. Store link will be released once the store is live!
