EVO Athletics’ Men’s Gymnastics Program Soars

Sarasota, Florida – EVO Athletics Men’s Gymnastics program has already established itself as a top training facility for elite gymnasts, and is now building its reputation as a top host for elite men’s competitions and training camps. In the past year, EVO Athletics has hosted three USAG sanctioned competitions: The Region 8 Future Stars, The Eleventh Hour and The SGGA Judge’s Cup.  Right now, EVO Athletics is preparing to host the Florida State Elite Camp in July. EVO Athletics is honored to host this camp for the nation’s top ranked men’s gymnasts for the second year in a row!

EVO Athletics is always enthusiastic to share its one-of-a-kind, elite facility for gymnasts and their families with athletes from all over the United States.  EVO Athletics is proud of the impact they are having on Manatee and Sarasota counties.  These gymnastics tournaments and camps have brought in over 800 athletes and their families from across the nation in the past year!  That’s an estimated 1,200 hotel rooms for 2,000 people patronizing our local restaurants and retailers.  These numbers only represent men’s gymnastics impact!  EVO Athletics currently hosts athletes in three separate sports and will be adding more in the future.  As EVO Athletics continues to grow, so will its positive economic impact on the community.

US Olympic Coach and EVO Athletics Executive Director of Women’s Gymnastics & Elite Coordinator, Aimee Boorman’s Official Statement on the future of USA Gymnastics

“Without a doubt, we are all outraged by the situation at USA Gymnastics.  Today, we must decide what comes next.  We need to ask ourselves: Do we give up on an organization that was founded on honorable values; an organization that has been positively impacting young athletes since 1963; or do we put in the time and effort to rebuild it, to take back what is rightfully ours?

I do not believe that the reprehensible decisions of a few should be permitted to erase the positive impact that USA Gymnastics has had in the past and can absolutely have again. There is no doubt that we will face enormous challenges, but I believe that there is immense value in restoring USA Gymnastics to its past dignity and greatness, and I stand behind that challenge.

First and foremost, the governing board must be filled with morally and ethically sound members, willing and able to put our athletes first, above all else.  Only then can we move towards the future.

Rebuilding our organization will set an excellent example for our athletes: an example of pride, an example of leadership and most importantly, an example of standing up for what is right.  We can and will take back the organization we have invested our time and passion in.

As leaders in this industry, we have a great opportunity before us to teach our athletes that even though evil exists in this world, evil will not win.  We can teach them that injustice can be used as fuel for change and that positivity can and will grow again, even after the darkest of hours.”
