Unfortunately, due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in Illinois and Tier 3 restrictions, we are no longer able to host the College Showcase at this time.

LEVEL 10 COLLEGE SHOWCASE

November 28th & 29th   

FlipStar and Midwest Elite Gymnastics Academy are partnering with Region 5 Insider to give athletes an opportunity to showcase their skills for college coaches.

We have spoken directly with college coaches to design a showcase around their wants and needs. This will be a 2-day camp that will highlight 2 events at a time.  Region 5 Insider’s Jason Macdonald will record the showcase in ultraHD 4k quality.  Immediately after the completion of the session, videos will be uploaded and available for all college coaches to view.  Gymnasts may also request the videos in order to edit and send out. There will be 10 athletes per block and 2 blocks per session.

COVID-19 Guidelines

-- Gymnasts, coaches and spectators will check-in at the front door.
-- There is limited space in our lobby for spectators, we have room for one parent/guardian for each gymnast.
-- Spectators must follow social distancing guidelines while in the lobby, chairs are spaced 6 ft apart.
-- All spectators and coaches are required to wear a mask at all times.
-- Gymnasts wear their mask at all times except when taking their turn at an event.
-- In the gym, gymnasts and coaches are to remain 6 ft apart, with the exception of spotting.
-- The gym is very large and we have intentionally kept each session small in order to facilitate keeping to the guidelines.
-- Hand sanitizer will be provided in the gym, everyone must use it before and after each event.
-- If for any reason you must cancel because of COVID-19 or you think someone in your household is sick, we will give a full refund.
-- If the gym must cancel because of COVID-19, we will give a full refund.

Gymnast Check-in

-- Make sure gymnasts pack the following items:

  • ziploc bag with chalk
  • spray bottle
  • grip brush
  • mask
  • tape
  • hair ties and other personal items

-- Gymnast will receive their number and group assignment at check-in.

Gymnasts will write their assigned number on one arm and their last name on the other.  We will have sharpie pens, you can also bring your own.
This will help college coaches identify them in the videos.  We do not recommend that girls wear matching leos (from the same gym) for this event.  College coaches have mentioned that it makes it more difficult to pick them out during the workout.

Event Format

-- After check-in gymnasts can move to the main floor area for open stretch followed-by 1st event warm-ups.
-- Warm-ups are not uploaded to the Region 5 Insider channel, but are recorded in case someone does some really stellar gymnastics.
-- Any outstanding warm-up turn may be uploaded as an individual clip for all to see.
-- After the warm-up we'll start the showcase portion. The showcase will be filmed and uploaded in its entirety.
-- Gymnasts should have a plan for what they want to showcase during each turn, that may be a single skill or a complete routine.
-- Once the showcase is completed for the 1st event, we'll move on to the 2nd event.

Gymnasts should strive to make every turn the best they can during the showcase. During filming we will have assistants announcing each gymnast's name to the camera with their graduation year to further help college coaches identify the gymnasts. The showcase portion is not a live-streamed event. College coaches have made it clear that they prefer recorded video that is uploaded immediately because there is no loss of quality in the video. Live-streaming often results in poor video quality and pauses making it difficult for coaches to see the athletes. Therefore the showcase will be uploaded to Region 5 Insider’s youtube channel immediately after the session.

After the completion of the showcase we will be directly contacting every top 3 school that each athlete listed in the camp questions. We will provide a link to the videos as well as the athlete information so college coaches can watch and identify each gymnast. The videos will also be available to any attending athletes upon request so that they can edit and share the videos if they would like.
