Although our TGGA gymnasts got a break, this past weekend was very successful for TAAF athletes throughout the ASI Family. ASI The Woodlands swept the Team Competition at Biron’s “Peace, Love & Gymnastics” Meet in Houston, winning 1st place for levels 1,2,3,4 and 5! A huge congratulations to coaches Julie and Nick and their amazing athletes! The Plano West Level 4s won 1st place in the small team division of the “Heart and Soul” meet, hosted by Richardson Gymnastics. Congrats to coach Whitney and her awesome level 4s!

Sanaii Burnett, Sarika Subramanian, Caroline Cohen and Rachel Watters from Plano West celebrate their first place victory!

Gymnastics is widely thought of as an individual sport, but nothing tastes as sweet as a victory shared with your teammates! In the Team component of gymnastics competitions, everyone’s scores combine for an overall team score, so teammates learn to appreciate each other’s unique contributions and specialties. It’s a great opportunity for kids to work together toward a common goal. Providing opportunities for every child to contribute in a team environment is just one of the ways ASI makes a difference in the lives of kids through gymnastics!

As the season continues, follow all of our athletes and their incredible achievements here on the ASI blog, and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Keep working hard, gymnasts!
