OUR ATHLETES
Our current gymnasts are extremely passionate about gymnastics. They excel at the opportunity to compete against the top teams in the highest divisions. Coppermine provides an ideal environment for gymnasts who are looking for a well rounded, more intense team experience and who are ready to take their talents to the next level.

OUR COMMITMENT LEVEL
Coppermine Gymnastics Club offers year-round programming for our gymnasts that include weekly training sessions, and USAG sanctioned competitions, working toward State and Regional Championships.
Opportunity to compete with us includes:
• Hot Shots (5-6 years, Invitation Only)
Hot Shots is an invite only class for gymnasts exhibiting exceptional form, flexibility, and strength. This class still focuses on building the fundamentals of each apparatus such as handstands, cartwheels, jumps, and pullovers at an accelerated pace. More emphasis is placed on body positioning, kinesthetic awareness, strength and flexibility to prepare our Hot Shots to move to Development or Team.
• Development Team (7-10 years, Invitation Only)
This invite only developmental program prepares gymnasts for future USAG competitions. Gymnasts selected must exhibit a coachable attitude, core strength, flexibility and attention to form, as we develop confident and motivated gymnasts.
• Coppermine Gymnastics Team (7+ years, Invitation Only)
We are happy to offer two routes for competitive gymnastics through USAG Xcel and USAG Junior Olympic competitive program. Coppermine Gymnastics Team gymnasts will exhibit exceptional strength, flexibility, attitude and sportsmanship. Tryout and evaluation dates, along with additional competition information will be posted and updated on our website.
