Elevate the Stage Gymnastics meet in Hoover Jan. 26-28
*Club women's gymnastics teams will arrive in Hoover on January 26. *
Club gymnastics teams from across the Southeast are scheduled to compete January 26-28, 2018 at the Finley Center at the Hoover Met Complex in the Elevate the Stage gymnastics meet.
Elevate the Stage has solely been held in Birmingham for the last three years as a meet between the University of Alabama and Auburn University. In 2018, Elevate the Stage will take place in five different cities across the United States, including the annual University of Alabama and Auburn University meet, which has been relocated to Huntsville, Alabama.
Elevate the Stage features a weekend-long competition with participating youth gymnasts from Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana and Kentucky. Legacy Gymnastics in Pelham is the host club for this meet, which will bring over 600 gymnasts the Birmingham area for this event.
"Knight Eady is excited to bring this event to Hoover for the first time. We wanted to provide a platform for youth gymnasts to compete on premium equipment against some of the best club teams in the Southeast," said Kayla Williams, Gymnastics Operations coordinator at Knight Eady and former World Champion gymnast. "We have enjoyed partnering with Legacy Gymnastics and the Hoover Met Complex for this event!"
Elevate the Stage provides a championship caliber platform for the athletes. The Elevate the Stage meet is staged on the podiums, which have historically only been used for the SEC and NCAA Championships. Additionally, the podiums are visually appealing to the audience and have more bounce and spring for the gymnasts.
Other Elevate the Stage meets take place in Reno, NV, Huntsville, AL, Toledo, OH, and Augusta, GA. These meets also feature club teams from across the country, as well as NCAA collegiate teams such as the University of Alabama, Auburn University, UCLA, University of Utah, University of Georgia, Stanford and many more.
Admission to the club meet in Hoover is cash only at the door. Tickets are on-sale for Elevate the Stage meets featuring collegiate competitions now via Ticketmaster. For additional information or to purchase tickets, fans can visit www.elevatethestage.com/.
