The CSU Club Gymnastics Club is one of the newest clubs at CSU. It was founded last semester by first-year Chloe Brekhus and Jess Moser, one of the coaches of the team. Last September, Moser’s boss decided they wanted a gymnastics team at the club level so that people could continue to do gymnastics after high school without worrying about getting scholarships for colleges with D1 gymnastics teams.

Currently, there are 13 women on the team and two coaches, Moser and Tariq Syed. Moser has been a coach for 10 years now and Syed has been coaching for 20 years. Each athlete comes to the team with varying years in the sport.

The practices, which are from 2-3:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday at Timberline Gymnastics, have less structure than some teams and gyms. But they still have a general plan for the athletes to follow for each practice.

The team is part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Gymnastics Clubs and they compete against CU, DU, Utah State, Arizona State and 5280 Alumni. Not every athlete will compete in all four events (Balance Beam, Uneven Bars, Floor and Vault) for women’s gymnastics, so during practices, they will usually just practice on the events that they compete.

The goal of the team is to “provide an opportunity for current and former gymnasts to keep doing what they love in a welcoming and fun environment while representing CSU.”
