8 year old Kayla Phillips has qualified to represent PEG at the TOPs National Testing. The testing will take place Oct.11 – 13 at the US Olympic Training Center in Huntsville, Texas. This will be Kayla’s first trip to the ranch.
TOPs National testing is a two day competition. One day tests physical abilities – which is a fancy way to say strength and flexibility. The girls perform leg lifts, rope climb, presses, handstand holds, cast to handstands, sprints and dynamic kicks. On the second day the girls show the national testing routines on vault, bars, beam, floor and dance. The athletes are evaluated by the National Staff. The goal is qualify for the TOPs camps in December!
