2002 Summer Team Camp

Week 1  July 7th – 13th

Week 2  July 14th – 26st

Camp Philosophy and Schedule

 The 2002 FLIPS USA Team Camp is designed for competitive gymnasts of all levels, 4 through Elite.  Rotations on all Olympic events and additional training in proper warm-up, alignment, flexibility, physical preparation, dance and trampoline skills will be included in the daily camp schedule.  The goal of the camp is to provide gymnasts with the progressions, drills and body mechanics that will enhance proper skill development and gymnastic technique.  While tricks will be attempted and may be learned at camp, the emphasis of instruction will be to improve the base and core skills that are necessary for higher-level skills.  We strive for a safe and highly motivated atmosphere at all times, and provide instruction by some of the nation’s top coaches. 

A variety of afternoon recreational activities add to the camp experience.  Typically these include swimming, bowling, roller-skating, movies or miniature golf, and a trip to beautiful Lake Tahoe. The week culminates with an evening of skits and dance demos performed by the campers, a family barbecue and a sleepover for gymnasts.

A note to visiting coaches: 

The foremost goal of camp is to provide sound technique and fundamental skills that will lead to increased and better-executed difficulty.  Camp is designed to include you in this process as much as possible by allowing you to rotate with the gymnasts, observes sessions and give us input as to the specific areas or skills you would like to concentrate on.
