Romeoville Tumbleweeds Competitive Gymnastics Team
Provide your daughter (age 6 through high school) the opportunity to learn, grow, develop, and mature into an outstanding young adult and athlete.
Our team nurtures and instills confidence in athletes to achieve anything they put their minds to. With that said, the utmost priority is to provide an incredible experience for each gymnast. This happens because the gymnasts, parents, families, and coaches work together as a team.
Being a part of the Romeoville Tumbleweeds is very rewarding and fun; however, it requires a huge commitment from both the gymnast and her family. If your child makes the team, commitments include: year-round practices, strict attendance policy, competitions (local and long-distance), additional fees for competitions & uniforms, and additional performances/appearances.
Register for tryouts by July 5th! If you make the team: practices begin August 19th. Tryout results will be posted on Friday, July 19th at 4:30pm at the Recreation Center. There will be a MANDATORY parent meeting on Monday, August 12 at 6:30pm in the Drdak Room.
