Welcome from the Club Flip team
Are you interested in Traditional Gymnastics (balance beam, floor, bars and vault)? Then maybe you might like to train and or compete with our champion gymnasts. We are preparing for the upcoming 2013-2014 season.
For the past three years we have competed in the WV State Meet, as well USAG sanctioned meets in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida. We currently train at the public gym, in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Our team is headed up by USAG coaches, and consists of female gymnasts competing in USAG competition levels 3-8. We also have the latest 2013 training materials.
Our training schedule consists of two or three classes per week and open gym times augmented with private lessons. We are a competition vehicle for dedicated gymnasts who want to take their abilities to the next level, and compete in West Virginia.
Levels 3 - 8 Gymnasts wanted!!!
