Gymnastics to Host “Meet the Team” Saturday

Fans welcome to meet the 2012 gymnastics team Saturday at 6 p.m. ET in Memorial Coliseum


LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Big Blue Nation will have a chance to get its first look at the 2012 University of Kentucky gymnastics team led by first-year head coach Tim Garrison when it plays host to the annual “Meet the Team” event Saturday at 6 p.m. ET inside Memorial Coliseum.
Admission to the event is free. Doors to Memorial Coliseum will open at 5 p.m. ET with all seating general admission.
Instead of an intrasquad scrimmage format, this year’s event will feature a skills showcase on each event, followed by competition style routines. Fans will also have the opportunity to ask questions to Coach Garrison or the student-athletes about their routines or skills during the event.
“I think it’s important for our student-athletes to be able to interact with our fans and for our fans to be able to see what quality young women we have here at Kentucky,” Garrison said. “We have changed the way we are going to do this event this year in order to make it more interactive and I think people will enjoy the changes. My goal is to introduce our athletes to our fans in a workout setting, but still showcase some competitive routines. This will allow some of our gymnasts that are not quite full routine ready to perform individual skills or short routine sequences. Others will perform full routines, which will help them prepare for the quickly approaching competitive season.”
After all skill showcases and routines are complete, the team will invite fans down to the floor for a meet-and-greet session where fans can take pictures and get autographs from their favorite gymnasts.
