You are invited to listen this new Gymnastics Song: => http://www.gymnastictimes.com/theme_lyrics.htm Having invoved in this sport, you may find it somewhat entertaining. Please feel free to pass it along.
After many years of traveling around with our daughter for her gymnastic meets, one morning, at the 2nd meet of this season, the idea came to my mind and I decided to write this song to describe the love, passion, and discipline of these young girls young ladies and their devotion to their gymnastics sport.

From Region 5 JO John Geddert
"For those who missed it, the 2006 National Championships was one of the most rewarding and exciting gymnastics events ever (at least from our point of view). We have had many successful national meets in the past. We have laid claim to the over all Regional Team Champions 5 of the last 7 years. We have captured 5 of 8 age group team titles on at least 4 separate occasions. STILL this year’s event carries special significance!
