The annual JumpStart National Team Camp is in progress February 19-21 at The Matrix gym in Huntsville, AL. Thirty-one athletes and their coaches are participating in the camp, which includes both trampoline and tumbling. The athletes earned positions on the JumpStart National Team through testing beginning in their gym and followed by state testing.
A percentage of athletes from state testing were invited to national testing in January. The top 21 girls and 11 boys were named to the National Team. JumpStart is the talent identification program for trampoline and tumbling and includes athletes ages 7-12 in Levels 1-8. Clinicians at the camp are: coaches Joy Umenhofer, Jared Olsen, Mig O’Hara, Alaina Williams and Jeffrey Brown, and camp director Bev Lloyd.
