“Elite Trampoline Academy’s competitive team just returned from the USA Gymnastics National Championships in July. The athletes compete in 4 events: Individual Trampoline, Synchronized Trampoline, Double-Mini Trampoline, and Tumbling. The USA Gymnastics National Championships were split into two locations, Greensboro, NC (for levels 8-elite) and Reno, NV (for levels 4-7). Over 1,500 athletes participated nation-wide. Elite Trampoline Academy’s Jeffrey Gluckstein won the Senior National Championship title, keeping the title now in the family for 10 years. Jeffrey’s older brother, Steven, won 5 National Championships and Jeffrey the other 5. The last person to win a US National Title without the last name Gluckstein was in 2008. The Gold medal wasn’t all that Jeffrey won, he was also awarded Athlete of the Year.
