Shooting Star Invitational Youth Gymnastics Competition
February 25 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm
JOHNSON CITY, TN – Visit Johnson City is proud to lend their support to the inaugural Shooting Star Invitational youth gymnastics competition. In association with USA and AAU Gymnastics, this event was conceived by Johnson City’s very own local gym, Appalachian Stars Gymnastics. Appalachian Stars Gymnastics hopes to create an accessible youth gymnastics qualifier for ages 4 to 18 of all skill levels. This meet will take place Saturday, February 25 from 9am to 7pm at the ETSU Mini Dome, formally known as the Ballad Health Athletic Center. An estimated 150 athletes hailing from all over the Tri-Cities region will be present at this event.
Being the first of its kind, this invitational has the opportunity to become a regular annual event marked on young gymnasts’ calendars. Dulci Miller, owner of Appalachian Stars Gymnastics, hopes to offer up an experience that is both competitive and convenient for gyms that otherwise would travel great lengths for similar meets. Miller is passionate about gymnastics and investing in the lives of children, and she believes this event accomplishes just that. The Shooting Star Invitational will spotlight some of the most talented gymnasts in the region and catapult them to Tennessee’s statewide competition. In hopes of cementing this as a marquee event now, Shooting Star will have an opportunity to attract increased visitor participation in ensuing years.
“I am honored to be able to share a little of our world with the community. Kids are our future and encouraging them to be brave, strong, and courageous is what I love. I hope to provide a memorable experience at the Ballad Health Athletic Center that these kids will remember for a lifetime and look forward to coming to every year,” said Dulci Miller of Appalachian Stars Gymnastics.
