Join us for our competitive tryouts on September 18th!
London Gymnastics Academy Competitive Tryouts Information:
We are very excited and looking forward to LGA’s annual Competitive Team tryouts being held on Saturday September 18th, 2021. Please see the Competitive Tryout Flyer for details of tryout time (based on birth year). Please pre-register online (will close Sept 16th). All athletes that are trying out will need to proceed to the registration table upon arrival to receive a tryout # and have a photo (head shot) taken before entering the gym. Please note that the photo will ONLY be shared with LGA staff exclusively. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to the posted try out time, as we will begin each session promptly. We kindly ask that only 1 parent/guardian be with your athlete, if needed.
What to expect during tryouts:
Athletes will be placed into small groups and will rotate around the gym to different strength and flexibility stations (chin ups, leg lifts, rope climb, splits, bridges, etc.). Once the strength and flexibility testing is complete, athletes will again rotate with their group to the uneven bars, balance beam, vault and floor to perform for LGA staff. Athletes will be asked to perform from a list of predetermined skills by a NCCP certified coach. Due to Covid, coaches will not be spotting skills, but will stand by as needed to ensure the safety of your child!
What to bring:
All athletes should wear a gymnastics suit. If your child does not have a suit, please wear shorts and a t-shirt. No socks! Water bottles will be brought with the athlete to each station. If you register at the gym, please remember to bring the $10 registration fee with you.
Please understand that this is a try out. We will accept as many athletes as we can into our programs, ensuring the correct placement on teams. If your child is not accepted on a competitive team, we ask that you remain positive with your child and encourage them to try out again the following year.

We look forward to seeing you!
