We know you have choices when selecting a competitive program for your child, and we are thankful you chose Zero Gravity Athletics (ZGA) this season. We have an extraordinary year planned for our athletes and are over-the-moon about meeting everyone at tryouts. Please note, competitive cheer requires a significant time and financial commitment. We ask that you keep this in mind when registering your child for team selections. We form our practice teams from the athletes who attend team selections, and want to set each team up from the beginning for success.

ZGA Team Selection Workshops:

Tryout workshops will be held weekly at Gulf Breeze (Mondays and Thursdays) and Niceville (Tuesdays and Thursdays) starting May 13-31. During the 5 hours a week, we will be working on skills to enhance the athlete's tryout. The cost is $150 and that includes the tryout fee ($35), USASF Fee ($30), and the tuition for the workshops ($85). If registered on or before April 30th this will be charged on May 1st. Registration for these workshops will continue throughout the month of May and the tutition can be prorated if started mid workshop. 
 
$10 off Workshops if registered and paid by April 26th!

What to expect when planning to attend ZGA Team Selections:

  • Location workshops will be offered for tumbling, jumps, and stunts leading up to team selection week. These will better prepare your athlete for the upcoming tryout.
  • Team selection month will begin June 3rd* and practice teams will be set by June 8th. We will be going LIVE with team placements followed by an email after team selections have been made to inform them of which practice to attend for their first practice.
  • Team selections will be very low stress. We will assess each athlete on their stamina, motions, dance, jumps, tumble, and maybe even stunting abilities.
  • Team selections will be done in a group setting to determine how they interact with future teammates. These group evaluations will be 30 minutes long.
  • The team selection schedule will be based off of age (as of August 31st, 2019) and current ability.*
    Experience is NOT NECESSARY to attend team selections.
  • If, for whatever reason, you’re unable to attend one of the scheduled team selection dates, please let us know so we can accommodate you.
  • A $35 tryout fee will be due prior to participating in team selections unless your athlete participated in the workshops.
  • Placements to our practice teams are not considered final until choreography teams are set, but remain fluid throughout the season based on the needs of specific teams.

Band, Contact Information, and Gym Etiquette Policy:

Band: Zero Gravity Athletics uses an app (also a website to use on your computer) called band to communicate with parents and athletes thought the season. A lot of important information goes out using Band so it is mandatory to down low and use this app. Parents can view schedule changes, competition information, and have general information sent right to their phone through this. Once teams have been set, the team specific Band link will be sent to you to register.

 

Contact Policy: This year we are implementing a new contact policy gym wide. Each coach will have his or her own ZGA email. If you need to speak to a coach about absences or questions about the team, you must email that coach individually. This helps to keep things organized and insure that the correct person is getting time sensitive information. If you have any financial questions, those must be emailed to the gym email at gozerogravity@gmail.com. Coaches will be instructed not to answer messages that come through their personal email, text, Facebook messenger, or any other forms of communication during nonworking hours that are not emergencies. 

 

Gym Etiquette Policy: The gym is a second home for our athletes. Some of them spend more time at the gym than they do at home. This should be a safe space for them to grow and develop as athletes and as individuals without worry of judgment from parents and peers. For this reason, we are implementing a strict policy for negative talk in the gym. First offence- If a parent is caught speaking about another parent, athlete, or coach, then we will have a face to face meeting with the parent. Second offence- The offending parent will be removed from the gym. Third offence-The child will be removed from the team.
