Wheel: Rec youth


Wheel with Coach Dave is now divided up into Recreational Program (youth Fri 5-6p) and Competition Team (Fri 6:00-7:30p).

Recreational is for our newest and/or younger troupe members, or anyone not interested in the push for higher level skill acquisition.
Competition Team is a longer practice with emphasis on conditioning, gymnastics skill/shapes, faster paced drive for skill building, and the commitment to attending Tristate practices, Wheel Weekend Workshops, local parades, and Wheel Federation competitions once routines are established.

Our Wheel Club boasts  athletes in Novice Kids, Junior Boys, Junior Girls, Senior Ladies and Senior Ladies, on all three disciplines. National Champion Dave Ettelson, Wheel Coach
