 USAWG and Chicago WheelJAM are proud to present WheelFest Workshops and World Tournament!

Now in its fourth year running, WheelFest takes place during the same week as the World Tournament and celebrates Wheel Gymnastics as both a sport and spectacle in a variety of social events, competitions, field trips, classes, and more!

As your host, USA Wheel Gymnastics wants everyone - athletes, family and friends - to enjoy this week to the fullest and offers activities for all ages and skill levels.

Wheel fest is a chance to learn new skills, try new things, and meet new people. You’ll have the opportunity to work with a variety of circus coaches, professionals, and performers.

 

Workshops include flexibility and stretching, harness training, handstands, Cyr and Gym wheel, and more! Get a chance to learn how to flip and fly in Arcadia, IN at Ripfest https://www.ripfest.net/
