Tryouts for our 2013-2014 Saltos team will be on Saturday, May 11th at our Bellevue location. Testing signups will begin on May 1st. Please call the Bellevue gym at 425-644-8117 to register for testing. Please make sure you have reviewed the required minimum skills.
Saltos is the alternative optional team program at Gymnastics East (Rec. Opt). It is a unique program that meets the needs of many gymnasts by providing a team atmosphere and competition experience without the strenuous commitment of time and finances of the J.O. program. Rec. Opt is a program that continues to grow, not only at Gymnastics East, but around the region as well.
Saltos is comprised primarily of former compulsory team members who excel in other activities as well as gymnastics and don't want to be tied only to one sport. The optional nature of the program also allows gymnasts to develop original routines that fit their own talents and personalities. All team members must be evaluated for skill, strength and flexibility before joining the team. Athletes that show an excellent work ethic and strong basics but do not yet have all of the skills required for Saltos may be referred to our new Excel developmental team. Excel is the USAG sanctioned prep opt program which will work out at the Issaquah rec. gym. Excel will give gymnasts an opportunity to compete against other Excel teams while they continue to develop the skills they need for Saltos.
Saltos team groups work out at the Bellevue gym.
The Saltos Team program is a year-long team commitment.
