Olympian Club Gymnastics

Victory Academy is proud to help gymnasts progress through the USA Women’s Artistic Gymnastics levels through a strategic training program that allows them to master the appropriate skills. Our goal is to:
•    Facilitate the dreams of the gymnasts and help them accomplish their goals.
•    Build strong gymnasts, as well as confident, committed, and respectful young people.
•    Encourage and appreciate our students, our talents, and our chosen sport.
•    Provide a positive, family environment where memories are made, and lifelong friendships are formed.

Members have to be invited to be on our team. While most of our team members have been involved in Victory Academy programs, we welcome new members from other gyms and communities. We’d love to meet you and hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about our team!

Competitions

  • Victory Academy attends approximately 7-8 regular season competitions throughout the season from November to February.
  • Gymnasts can qualify to the State, Regional, or National competitions typically held from March-May.
  • Aside from Regional and National competitions, all regular season meets are located in various towns in Illinois, no more than a 2.5-hour drive from Bloomington.
  • The gymnasts compete individually for scores on the four events (Vault, Bars, Beam, and Floor) for a combined all-around score. The gymnasts can win medals and trophies for placing in events.
  • Competitions are what we work toward all year, and are a fun time to showcase the skills and routines the girls work so hard to master in the gym!
