Florida Gators Camps and Clinics
Designed for all levels
Head Coach Rhonda Faehn invites campers to experience the opportunity to work with a National Championship winning staff and team for the weekend! The Gator Gymnastics summer camp is committed to providing a place where participants will experience a championship-caliber environment that is challenging, yet fun. During camp gymnasts will be placed into groups based upon their skill level and will train in our bright new world-class practice facility (click here for photos). They will be working not only with the Gator coaches but also present and former Gator gymnasts, along with talented coaches from around the nation. Emphasis will be placed upon reinforcing basic skills while pursuing new skills and skill progressions—very similar to what the Gator gymnastics team does every day! Training will be on all four competitive events, as well as Tumble Trak/trampoline, dance, and strength and conditioning. Please take a few moments to read the following information before beginning to register. Remember, we are accepting 140 campers each weekend!

Some examples of voluntary withdrawal are, but are not limited to, homesickness, Dr.’s appointment, birthday parties, school functions, music or dance recitals, etc.

Parking accommodation will be made as necessary while dropping off on Fridays. It is hoped that those wanting to watch workouts will limit their time; observation may take place only from the limited seating available in the facility lobby; there will be no parent access to the gym itself. Due to limited space availability in these locations, there will be no parent viewing for the non-skill activities of the dance, sports nutrition, and sports psychology sessions.
Daily Work-out Needs: Leotard (and have an extra one daily), grips and any other personal equipment (wrist guards, beam shoes, etc.), shorts and shirt and tennis shoes or flip flops for walking to/eating at Gator Dining, small bag with name on it for holding items. Cell phones are not permitted for use during the camp day (including meal times) except for emergency.
