By the end of the summer, Coach Maya and Coach Rachel were very sad to say goodbye to their campers!
Everyone loves going to the pool! This summer we brought the whole gym to the pool and took over the scene! The girls love swimming to cool off from the hard work that goes on in the gym.
When it comes to the end of the week and show time, even the coaches are willing to wear silly costumes!
Even our youngest participants (some as young as 3 years old) have a great time learning and sometimes even coming up with their own routines! What a wonderful way to promote creativity and exercise!

Coach Maya after a hard day's work at the gym. Although it can get difficult, a long day at the gym is always very rewarding.
The intermediate group has been working very hard at learning their new and exciting choreography from coach Giorgia
Aria Liu and Karen Chen being symmetrical with their wonderful back-grabbings.
The girls love to have fun with the coaches during breaks and pool time!
Although it can get toasty in the Needham gym, Summer Camp 2015 was a huge success! From spraying each other with cool mist from bottles around the gym, to playing Marco Polo at the neighborhood swimming pool, the girls found many ways to stay cool, active, and most importantly: MAKE FRIENDS AND HAVE FUN! Check out these awesome photos , and make sure to share any of your own with us on our Facebook page!

One of the girls' favorite activities is photo-bombing their friends' cool gym shots. Here you can see a few of these instances! A very impressive backgrabbing from Serena, and some nice oversplits from coach Maya's team!
Coach Ada's end-of-the-summer team pool party! It's always nice to hang out with the gym friends outside of the gym!
Good luck to all of our competitive team gymnasts this year- we have more competitors than ever before! Stay tuned to find out about upcoming competitions so that you can come cheer on your teammates!

Strength and flexibility are two of the most important skills to work on in rhythmic gymnastics. Here the team is doing controlled cheststands in unison!
