Family, friends and guests are invited to watch young gymnasts from the Tri-Cities area and surrounds perform on December 17, at Sparta Gymnastics, Southland Mall.
Boys and girls of all ages and levels have worked hard to develop their skills and routines and are ready to demonstrate what they have mastered at their annual Holiday fundraising-event. Snacks, raffle tickets, great prizes and holiday gift items will be on sale during the show. Anyone wishing to try some gymnastics should stay for the "Open Gym" hour; the gym floor will be open to all guests for $10.
Jivco Jetchev, the owner of and primary instructor at Sparta Gymnastics, has decades of experience. Originally from Bulgaria, he was a coach on the Bulgarian National Team in 1988 when he helped train several European, World and Olympic Medalists. After moving to the United States in 1992, he taught at several Bay Area gyms before opening his own.
Since launching Sparta Gymnastics in 2004, Jetchev, known as Coach J, has successfully trained several Boys' and Girls' Regional and State Champions. Most recently, two girls from the Sparta Gymnastics Girl's Team qualified and competed at the 2011 NORCAL State Championship with great results.
The children respect Coach J. His perfect combination of passion and patience brings out the best while young athletes learn to master their mind and body in the sport of gymnastics.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Sparta Gymnastics Team Program.
