Hi CEA Family!

With over 465 total athletes that tried out this season, we are surprisingly the largest we have ever been.  I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for your continued belief in our program during this crazy time.  We are so proud of each child and we celebrate every small progression with them. The amount of excitement going into Season 15 is at an all-time high!

GROUP TRAINING TIMES FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 8th

If we decide this flows well, we will continue this schedule through the end of June 🙂

Side Note:  To maximize gym space and ensure as much social distancing as possible-we are limiting crossover opportunities at this moment.  Therefore, most kids have been invited to one time to train this week.  Ultimately, once teams become more finalized we may invite you to do more than one team. However, we will be reaching 50% capacity inside the gym so if you do not feel comfortable participating in that kind of environment, please let us know.

REMINDER:  The Level 1-3 Tumble camp is this weekend and we will finalize groups by Tuesday.

Cheers,
