2019 Lucky Stars Invitational
March 8, 9, & 10, 2019



Welcome to the 19th Annual Stroup’s Lucky Stars Invitational! 
Last year we had more than 20 gyms with more than 700 gymnasts from the USA and Canada.

The competition will be warm-up/compete, New York State style, with two sets of equipment (tumbling strip).  Final competition numbers and competition order will be available the day of the meet.


Our host hotel is: Comfort Inn, 2800 North Main Street Ext, Jamestown, NY 14701, 716-664-5920


Please make sure your gymnasts are on time!  Doors to the facility open for general admission at 7:30 AM. Gymnasts in the first session may enter the competition area at 8:00 AM, or if their coach is there and invites them in. Other sessions will begin as soon as the previous session has ended and can be safely started.

PLEASE NOTE: No Coolers or outside food will be permitted in the gym.


Your child’s age group is determined by the gymnast’s age prior to NYS championship date. 

As usual, our awards exceed the required amount.  There will be trophies for all-around and medallions for events.  Wall banners will be provided, distinguishing team placing.


Awards will occur at the end of each session.


An athletic trainer will be available on site.


Scores will be flashed on scoreboards.  Scores will be delivered to the coaches, and will be posted for parents near the concession stand and stairwell.


Gymnasts are not permitted to use cell phones or other devices while participating.
It is against USAG rules.


Please remember: No flash pictures during the meet and remain outside the competition area at all times. You may still take photographs, but review your camera’s owner’s manual prior to the meet to learn how to turn the flash off.


There is plenty of free parking around the Jamestown Community College Athletic building where the competition is being held.  However, Friday morning classes will still be in session and parking may be at a premium.  If you have difficulty finding a near by space, drop your gymnast off at the door and park at one of the farther areas.


Please note that admission prices are for one person for the entire day.

Lucky Stars T-shirts will be available at the meet.  There will also be a retail stand with many gymnastic items and leotards.

We will also be holding one 50-50 raffle per session.  Look for the Leprechaun and help support the gymnasts.


Prior to the meet, all questions should be directed to your coach.  Please do not call Stroup’s Gymnastics!  If you have questions during the meet or need assistance, please ask any of the meet personnel.  Thank you for helping to make this an efficient weekend for everyone!
