The La Jolla YMCA gymnastics team was one of six U.S. teams to be invited to the 14th annual World Gymnaestrada, from July 10-16 in Switzerland. The team attended the event along with more than 30 countries and 60 participating gymnastics groups.

There, they completed multiple group gymnastics performances, including a flash mob, which they performed on command with all other participants multiple times in public during the trip.

The World Gymnaestrada happens every four years in a different country and is the world’s largest gymnastics event. Competitive teams from all over the world are invited to participate. The La Jolla team had previously attended the event in Austria four years ago.

The team also participated in June at the National U.S.A. Group Gymnastics competition in Burbank. They performed competitively against group gymnastics teams and received the Judges’ Choice Award for best routine of the year.

The La Jolla YMCA gymnastics department recently received a grant for $16,000 from Las Patronas, funds that have helped it purchase new equipment.
