Florida Gator Camps and Clinics
Designed for all levels from beginners all the way up to elite level gymnasts!
A new look in a new facility!
Gator coaches Rhonda, Adrian, and Robert invite campers to experience the opportunity of becoming Gator gymnasts for the weekend! Gymnasts will be placed into groups based upon their skill level and will work out in every session with the Gator coaches and Gator gymnasts. Emphasis will be placed upon reinforcing basic skills while pursuing new skills and skill progressions—very much like what the “real” Gator gymnasts do every day. Training will be on all four competitive events, as well as Tumble Trak/trampoline, dance, and “conditioning the Gator way.” Best of all, campers will experience for the first time gymnastics in our beautiful new training facility! Please take a few moments to read the following information before beginning to register. Remember, we are accepting 100 campers each weekend!

All campers must have on file prior to the start of camp either a doctor’s signature and office stamp on the physician’s statement (may be downloaded from a link in the registration process) or a school or camp physical exam form completed, dated, and signed between June 21, 2012 and the first day of the first camp.

If an accident occurs, the camp’s excess medical insurance will not be considered until the family’s primary insurer has paid or denied coverage. If expenses are also declined through the excess policy, they become the personal responsibility of the camper’s parent(s) or guardian(s).
