Huge congratulations to IK rhythmic gymnasts who are going to join the US Rhythmic Youth Elite Squad soon! We are excited to announce that four of our gymnasts at once have been selected by USA Gymnastics for the 2016 Rhythmic Youth Elite Squad! Elizaveta Samardak, Stefania Mishtal, Jaelyn Chin and Irina Fesyun, we are so proud of you!
The US Rhythmic Gymnastics Squad is a team of promising gymnasts selected every year by USA Gymnastics. The main goal of Rhythmic Squad is to provide elite training opportunities for coaches working with skilled young rhythmic gymnasts. Camp sessions, which are conducted throughout the year, require the highest level of technique development for both athletes and coaches. The candidates for the National Rhythmic Squad are identified through competition at the local, state, regional and national levels by Squad Coordinator attending these rhythmic events.
