If you missed quad day or the informational meeting, don’t fret. Just come to any practice and ask to speak to one of the team presidents.
We practice in the gymnastics balcony (top floor) of the Kenney Gymnasium on Wright St. and Springfield Ave. Practices are 6:30-9:30 pm Monday-Thursday during the fall and spring semesters. We practice at the same gym as the Illini varsity teams so the facilities and equipment are excellent.
The flippin illini gymnastics club is a part of the NAIGC. All the meets we attend can be found on the NAIGC website. The meets are always a lot of fun with a relaxed atmosphere. All club members are welcome to attend any meet but all meets are optional. The club usually competes at four invites during the year and also competes at Nationals in the spring semester. Meets are on Saturdays so we leave Champaign either Saturday morning or Friday night. After the meet, the host team has a social gathering so we stay overnight and return to Champaign on Sunday.
