    So, the Navy has decided to move me again. I have been doing some research with a few results, but just in case I missed any I figured I would ask. I am looking for gyms in the Jacksonville, Fl area, as I would love to pick coaching back up. I also cant seem to find an open team in the area so if anyone knows of one it would be amazing! :)

    Thank you in advance for any help, I seem to be terrible at this.

    We have a new coach at iNfinity that just came from Maryland. I would stop by iNfinity while you are looking at all the gyms in the area. I think Premier and First Class are also very good programs. There is also a gym called River City All Stars. A smaller program called Zone somewhere near St. Augustine and CGA is not too far north, about an hour from Jax in Brunswick, depending on where you settle around here. There is a sub base at Kings Bay which is Brunswick.

    I know of a gym called iNfinity! I love them... Seriously every team is awesome!

    I don't know of the others as I m not from Florida, I'm sure they are great as well but infinity was at NCA and Summit and the routines are awesome!

    Thanks for the shout out!

    Are you in kings bay, mayport or nas jax?

    Infinity is the strongest Jacksonville program and is probably the largest and I think may have lost a coupe of coaches last year, so they may have some openings. Zone is next in my opinion, but will probably be about an hour and half south of you and River city will probably be the closest gym to you.
    We are about an hour north, but no open team and are pretty well set on staff for the season

    I will be at NAS Jax. I will definitely need to swing by and check them all out!

    Being at NAS Jax the closest gym to you would probably be Premier which is about 15-20min from NAS. Premier is a decent gym and produces good routines from all their levels.

    Zone Allstars would be a good 30minute drive from you. They just moved locations closer to Jax now so they are no longer in St Aug area. They are a newer organization but has a phenomenal coaching staff. All of their teams are strong and they offer all levels. The high school team I coached would practice at Zone and I had nothing but a positive experience with Zone and my girls adored the coaches.

    Infinity is located out towards the beaches area. They would be a good 45min drive from NAS. They are by far the largest program in Jax and very very strong. Their coaching staff is wonderful and produces amazing routines. Tracy the owner is a wonderful lady and is super sweet to work with. Infinity has a very good reputation around town as well.

    I am not that familiar with River City Allstars or I would tell you more about them.

    I would definitely visit all 3 gyms I listed and get a feel for their gym and staff. All 3 offer very differently things but are all wonderful programs.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    ^what they said..

    Also, First Class Athletics. They're smaller but I had a positive experience! They're about 25-30 minutes from the base! :)

    All the gyms listed are great. And there is only one open team in the area and it at a small gym called glam cheer and dance. We mostly do local comps and are sadly not sneaking any worlds bids. But it's a great program. We are starting practice next month. I hoped that helped :)

    I just moved to Jacksonville a few weeks ago and I have been to iNfinity for some open gym classes and I love it there! The coaches are very helpful and their gym is awesome! I have also been in contact with Hurricane allstars about some stunting privates but haven't actually been. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me! I live right near Town Center and iNfinity is only about 15-20 from me :)

    We competed against River City and Infinity for years. Infinity Youth 2 won the Summit in one of the largest divisions there - i'm sure they are on you tube....an athlete on that team moved to CA Austin over the summer as we did. They were fantastic the few times I saw them at FL comps...I am not really sure about River City...they have always come in behind us every year except last year we dropped once and came in 2nd. But they do a lot of the main comps in FL and we competed against them at Cheersport last year in Y3 too but I think Infinity does more of the big ones. Check all the gyms mentioned and their comp scheds. Best of luck on your decision!
