The Studios Unlimited Tumbling & Trampoline team had a great weekend at the USTA National Team Trials in Decatur, IL on March 12th and 13th. To say it was a perfect weekend would not be true.  To say it is and was a testimony to my faith as a coach and believing in God’s plan would be a greater explanation!

About 4 weeks ago, I received the number of competitors that our athletes would have.  Our intermediate team kids had 70 against them, our novice and sub-advanced kids had about 50 competitors and our beginners had around 20.  These numbers are larger than national competition in some divisions!  I was thinking about the consequences.. As a coach, you sometimes second guess your decisions and I have to say the numbers scared me!

I put it in God’s hands and stood on faith during the weeks preparing our team and put my faith in our athletes.  I could not be more proud of our kids and their hard work certainly paid off!

The beginner, advanced beginner, sub-novice and novice divisions only take the 1st place athlete and place them on the USTA National Team.  In the intermediate, sub-advanced and advanced divisions the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place athletes will earn a spot on the National Team.  The athletes received flight award medals and the National Team members received a plaque and will get a National Team warmup and leotard!  They will be included the opening ceremonies during Nationals this summer in Knoxville, TN and next year as well!
