Parent Inspired. Coach Supported. Gymnast Focused.
Sunday, April 26, 2020
2:00 - 5:00 pm
Any recreational gymnast 5 years or older who is interested in taking her gymnastics to the next level, working hard, or spending more time at the gym is invited to participate in our virtual 2020-2021 Team and Pre-Team try-outs. Gymnasts currently in our Purple level gymnastics class are highly encouraged to participate, however girls in other recreational levels are welcome as well.
All try-outs will be conducted via ZOOM video-conferencing due to the COVID-19 Stay-At-Home order. Once you have registered your daughter we will contact you with a time, information and links on how to join.
TO REGISTER please visit bit.ly/MEKStryouts to sign up. If you do not have a Parent Portal account, please sign up and enter your child's information. If you are a current or past member you should be able to log in to your account and then sign up under the camps tab.
If your daughter has competed previously on a competitive team and you would like more information about our competitive program, please contact Misty Carpenter at
We will evaluate each child for the place where she will be challenged and able to grow, but not overwhelmed or unnecessarily frustrated. All gymnasts will be placed where they will be most successful. Everyone will have a place – whether it is on a team, a pre-team, or a recreational class.
Some of the factors we use for placement consideration include current skill level, strength, coachability and maturity. At MEKS, we believe everyone can do gymnastics. All of our recreational classes, teams and pre-teams focus on building strong fundamentals so that each individual gymnast can have a successful gymnastics career that will build skills, confidence and stamina.
March 24 - April 12, 2020
THE GYM IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR ALL TEAM PRACTICES, RECREATIONAL CLASSES, PRIVATE LESSONS AND PARTIES.
In light of the changes to the CDC recommendations regarding the COVID-19 virus and the Shelter-In-Place mandate issued by Governor Holcomb beginning March 25 - April 7th, the gym is now closed until at least April 12th. We will then re-evaluate based on the recommendations of the state and our local community leaders.
At MEKS, we are proud of the positive contribution we are making to our families and community. We plan to continue to make a positive impact during this period apart and will be providing many opportunities for your children to stay engaged with gymnastics while we are socially-distancing.
We urge you to maintain your membership and thank you for being part of the MEKS family. We are all in this together, and together we will come through this stronger.
We hope you have been participating in our daily Facebook challenges and have been reading your emails to see our new group additions for classes and team practices and plans for how we plan to proceed once everyone is back in the gym.
In good health,
Misty Carpenter, Jennifer Hollems, Jennifer Timmons, Monica Willhoite
and the coaches and staff of MEKS Gymnastics Academy
