We are really happy to have a new corporate sponsor of Erie Gymnastics Center, Widget Financial! 

As you know, learning gymnastics is something that takes years of practice …Helping young people learn to save and manage money over a lifetime also takes a lot of patience and diligent effort; and that's something that Widget wants to help your child achieve. 

As a locally-owned credit union, Widget’s mission is to help kids and young adults learn to be responsible with money for a lifetime. They offer kids club accounts and even a reloadable debit card that is perfect for gymnasts 13 yrs. of age and older! (In fact, they are the only financial institution in the region offering a card like this ... It is perfect for gymnasts who will be traveling this year!)

Widget Financial has also generously offered to help lower the cost of registration by $20 for every gymnast who is a member of the credit union!!!

is this cool news!

Erie Gymnastics has friends within the world of Cirque du Soleil.  These friends have extended a fantastic offer to us for the new touring "OVO" Cirque du Soleil show coming to Erie.

    First, Cirque is planning on sending some of their world class athletes to Erie Gymnastics.  Exact time & date to be announced.  This will give our students an awesome opportunity to meet & see some of the best athletes in the world.

    Second, they have extended a special promo code to us to save $10.00.  Click on the picture link an you can directly order tickets!

    Third, they are possibly going to give some of our students backstage access to meet the athletes and see the production.



Hi Parents!  I'm Doug Pershun, owner & Program Director for Erie Gymnastics - Team Lightning Inc. As a young boy, my parents opened up a Savings Account in my name to teach me responsibility.  When I would get Christmas money, my allowance, or a check from Grandma, I would take it to the bank and put it in my Savings Account.  I helped teach me financial responsibility.

    My wife & I tried to do the same thing for our children, however after 9/11 the Banking Industry changed, and children could no longer have accounts.  The laws have since eased up a bit, but we still recently struggled to get our daughter a VISA for an overseas trip with her High School.

    That is why I really excited when Widget Financial approached me with a Sponsorship Proposal.  They want to help teach children to save and build a great relationship with the community.  They offer Savings Accounts for any child, and when they are 13, can issue them their own (secured) card.  It is a great way to teach responsibility and fun for kids to learn to save.

    Widget is offering $20.00 off our EGC Registration Fee for signing your child up for a Savings Account at Widget Financial.  It's simple and no strings attached other than signing them up.  They will even honor the $20.00 for students who are already members.  It's easy & you can do it online!  See details from their Chief Marketing Officer below.
