ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The Kids Spot Tumbling and Trampoline Team traveled to Bourbonnais, IL on Sunday to take part in the USTA Invitational Liberty Meet. 22 team members and their families made the nearly two and a half hour drive in order to show off their skills in power tumbling, trampoline, and double mini, and brought home twenty-six top three finishes.
“These invitational competitions are an important part of their training because they provide an opportunity for the athletes themselves to gauge their progress. It also helps to get them accustomed to the pressure of competition, so that by the time we attend state the nervousness that comes with being in the spotlight and being judged is gone.” said Coach Megan Owens. Next up for the young athletes is the Pot O Gold Invitational, March 17th in Plainfield, Illinois.
