Our Women's Teams programs offer a variety of levels and flexibility for the athletes, from local in-house competitions and showcases, to more regional competitions within Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, and Illinois. eXcel and eXtreme, at select levels, have the opportunity to qualify for regional and national competitions within the Junior Olympic program.
SIGS Team tryouts are in spring each season, with the new team year beginning in May. Competition season typically is from December - April (state meets are March - April). Current team members do not try out for new teams; they are placed for the next season by coaches and team director, along with the athlete and familial support.
SIGS is proud to partner with our New Albany neighbor, Motion Studio, for our Gymnastics Teams dance instruction as part of their practice regimen.
THE REC TEAM
Our Recreational Team is for team members looking for a team atmosphere and commitment.
Team members practice once or twice a week, for an extended time (80-90 minutes).
At the end of each session, there will be a skills showcase.
eXcite teams are divided by age and practice two times a week. This introduction to teams participate in in-house meets. eXcite teams train a similar skillset in preparation for our competitive team program.
Gymnasts who meet a particular skill criterion, as well as show exemplary behavioral skills, are invited to join the eXcite program.
eXcite gymnasts participate in 3 in-house meets during their season.
The eXcel program is designed for athletes who show a strong work ethic and desire to improve, yet require a greater degree of flexibility in skill or commitment.
Gymnasts are invited to our eXcel program after a successful season on an eXcite team or a strong showing at team tryouts.
The eXcel program consists of five divisions, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, which practice 2-3 times per week and participate in 5-6 meets throughout the year.
The eXtreme program, as the name implies, requires the greatest degree of commitment and is designed for athletes who are both physically and mentally prepared to train gymnastics at the highest level.
Gymnasts must demonstrate superior gymnastics abilities and a commitment to excellence to be selected for an eXtreme team placement.
The eXtreme program consists of levels 1-10. Compulsory levels 1-5 train up to 3 days/week and compete in local Indiana competitions whereas Optional levels 6-10 train 4 days per week and compete in 6-8 meets.
