Y Showtime Gymnasts Cheer on College Coaches

Showtime Gymnasts, coach Sally Silverstein and the Yale bulldog.

Members of the Family Y’s Showtime Gymnastics Exhibition Team traveled to Yale University recently to watch a college meet between Yale, Springfield College, Westchester  College and the University of Bridgeport.

The Family Y gymnasts were excited to see two of their own Family Y Gymnastic Staff coaches compete on the winning University of Bridgeport Team!

Rachel Daub on bars scored a 9.4, and  Caitlin Perry on floor scored a 9.8 on floor!

While in New Haven, some of the Y gymnasts with coach Sally Silverstein even made friends with the Yale Bulldog…

Enjoy these photos of the trip to Yale, and if you have a young gymnast at home this week, know that there’s still time to take part in the Family Y’s gymnastics programs during the Winter School Recess on a drop-in basis:

Vacation Gymnastics & Swim Camp. Learn to improve your gymnastics skills — and swim each day. This camp is for kids age six and older and takes place from 12 to 4 pm all week long. Bring a snack and a drink; participants must be able to swim without a flotation device. There’s also a daily drop-in option for this fun program, coordinated by Senior Sports & Recreation Director Sally Silverstein, who heads up the Y’s nationally renowned competitive gymnastics program. The fee is $165 for the week for all participants, or $40 per day. To register, click here.

Toddler Adventure Gym. Each weekday from 9 to 11 am, our Gymnastic Center is a wonderland of bouncy cushions, mini-slides and other tyke-size tumbling. The price is $10 a session, and it’s open to all children ages 6 months to 4 years old and their parents or guardians. For details, call 203-226-8981.
