USAG Girls Team
TNT’s Girls Junior Olympic program trains and competes following the guidelines, rules and policies set by USA Gymnastics. The program follows the belief that all athletes must develop a solid foundation of basic skills in order to advance safely at their own pace and reach their full potential. Three sub-programs exist within TNT’s Girls Junior Olympic Program:
TNT's Developmental Program is comprised of three groups: Profile, Level 1, and Level 2. The Developmental Teams are non-competitive, achievement-based groups focused on proper skill, technique and shape development for progression into the competitive levels. Developmental athletes are able and encouraged to participate in various community outreach events. Participation in our developmental program is not required to advance to the competitive levels, nor does it guarantee mobility to the competitive levels.
TNT’s Compulsory Program is comprised of three levels: Level 3, Level 4 and Level 5. The Compulsory-level athletes train and compete routines designed by USA Gymnastics to build upon the foundation of skills and techniques learned in the developmental levels as well as prepare the athletes for optional level competition. Athletes in TNT’s Compulsory Program compete within North Dakota as well as in surrounding states with their season culminating at the State Championship Meet.
TNT’s Optional Program is comprised of five levels: Level 6, Level 7, Level 8, Level 9 and Level 10. The Optional-level athletes train and compete routines designed specifically for them following the guidelines and requirements set by USA Gymnastics. Athletes in TNT’s Optional Program compete throughout the state, region and nation with their seasons culminating at three different meets: State Championships (Levels 6 & 7), Regional Championships (Level 8) and National Championships (Levels 9 & 10).
TOPS (Talent Opportunity Program)
TNT's TOPs Team is a supplemental program intended to accelerate the training of athletes, ages 6-11, who are at or above the Profile level. The TOPS curriculum serves to enhance the five components of physical fitness (cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition) in order to expedite skill development. TOPs athletes are tested annually each summer on their physical abilities and skills sets following guidelines and routines set by USA Gymnastics. Athletes eligible for this program must meet or exceed all program expectations- attendance, work ethic, etc.

TNT Kid's Fitness & Gymnastics is a place our two girls call their second home. After joining TNT, they welcomed our family as part of theirs, with open arms. The coaches are unbelievably talented, caring, and always coming up with new ways to create better gymnasts. All of the staff, coaches and other TNT families are extremely welcoming and friendly. Our girls have soared not only with the gymnastics skills, but with their confidence and strength as well since beginning at TNT not that long ago. Since joining the TNT family our two competitive gymnasts have found a new love and drive for gymnastics, and I couldn't ask for a better place for my girls to spend their time. We are more than happy with TNT and cannot wait to see how the girls progress in the future.
