OLYMPIA'S LETTER TO PARENTS ABOUT ABUSE IN GYMNASTICS
Dear Olympia Families,
The safety of your child, our young student/athletes, is of great importance to us at Olympia. "Good for Kids" is not just an empty motto of ours. We mean it, we live it, and you will see it. With the recent attention given to Dr. Nassar, the doctor in the news, and his horrid abuse of young children, we are given great pause. We want you to be aware of a few things. We have been creators of safe practices over the years and we will continue to develop practices that place your child in a safe environment. Read more here...Letter from the Owner of Olympia
SPIRIT ELITE PROGRAM ENDS
It is with great sadness that we announce Olympia will no longer offer competitive cheerleading as of April 2018. We are very proud of the wonderful "Good for Kids" experiences we have offered young cheerleaders over the years (since 1993). We also take pride in the numerous National honors earned through the hard work of our athletes and coaches. Thank you to all the cheerleadingers, parents, staff, and family of Spirit Elite for the wonderful memories that you helped create over the last 25 years.
