Every spring, Mismo sets a date for team skill evaluations? All enrolled Flipo 2 and Flipo 3 athletes are invited to participate in the skill evaluations. The team coaching staff runs these evaluations at a scheduled day and time. An email will be sent to the families who are eligible for the skill evaluation. The team staff will then evaluate your athlete and recommend where your athlete should be placed for the next season.
The Team is an ongoing commitment, meaning it is all year long. If your athlete is on the Mismo Gymnastics Team, be prepared to work out all year long and travel in Season (usually winter months). Being a part of the Mimso team requires your athlete to practice no less than 6 hours a week. Your athlete must compete to be a part of the Mismo Gymnastics Team Program.
The Mismo team has monthly tuition as well as competition fees for Season. Monthly tuition is based on how many hours your athlete trains per week. Generally, your athlete will get 4 weeks of training per month.
Competition fees are the additional costs, beyond the training tuition, to cover the assigned competition enrollment fees as well as cover the pay for the coaching staff needed at each meet. Competition fees are divided into 5 monthly payments that will be an additional fee with your tuition.
***Please note these costs do not include the team gear that each athlete will need to be on the competition floor and travel expenses. Your athlete will need a practice leotard, a competitive leotard, and warm-ups.
No, your competition fees do not cover your athlete and or family travel. Competition fees are used to help pay for your athletes' meet entry, coaches travel, coaches pay for being on the floor with your athlete.
Yes, GBC, short for Gymnastics Booster Club, is a group of parents of Mismo's competitive gymnasts that organize fundraising opportunities. Funds can be raised to cover competition costs and team gear. Funds raised will be applied to tuition as well and the funds are used on a first-come basis. Meaning, the funds will be applied to everything on the monthly statement unless you make individual arrangements with the front office manager. Any amount that is fundraised will be paid to Mismo and applied to your account balance. The funds cannot be used for anything other than your costs that are paid directly through or to Mismo. However, you must participate in the fundraising to receive any benefits from the GBC. The GBC offers several fundraisers throughout the year to help cover the cost of gymnastics and a very limited amount of scholarships are available on an as-needed basis. Please reach out to the GBC board for more information if you have questions, the office staff is not privy to the details of each department's fundraising.
Gymnastics season usually runs from January through the end of March for the youngest athlete. The older and the higher level your athlete goes, the longer the commitment is through the spring.
State Cup and State Meet are required. You can sign up for any other meet as long as your child's level can participate in that competition. There needs to be a minimum of 3 athletes to compete at each level to sign up for a meet for Mismo to participate in that competition.
Most of the meets so far seem to be allowing 2 spectators per athlete...but we shall see. You can check our Gymnastics Team News page for updates.
That is going to totally depend on whether or not the future meet has room for another entry. Late entries will be trickier this year with meet directors having to reduce the number of athletes in a session. This could cause sessions and meets to fill up and close. But, if there is room and we have given our athlete's entry fee back from a canceled meet, we are happy to transfer that to another meet.
This will depend on the meet director. Many but not all meet directors will refund money to a sick or injured athlete but it is not required or guaranteed. This year could be different. I honestly don't know how each meet director will navigate this new territory. Typically once an athlete is registered and the meet director has spent the money on venues, judges, awards, etc...they do NOT do refunds. However, if an entire meet is canceled I am imagining we will at least see a partial if not a full refund. Like Spring of 2020, we had a partial refund from Bozeman and a full refund from the state.
