If you’re like me, you’re always looking for fun things to do with the whole family. LSU Gymnastics in Baton Rouge may just be the perfect match for you. What kid doesn’t love watching gymnasts tumbling and performing? Most of us only see gymnastics during the Olympics. But, you have the opportunity to see some extremely talented and athletic gymnasts right here in Baton Rouge! Coach D-D Breaux says,
It’s fun because it’s a family event in a time frame that is manageable with children. It’s a fan-friendly environment, and the student-athletes themselves are very fan conscious, play to the crowd and really enjoy having a family crowd there. Another prong that makes this a special event in our community is the fact it is something the whole family can do together, and it is affordable.
LSU Gymnastics in Baton Rouge Meets
So, what should you expect from an LSU Gymnastics meet? Tickets are normally $10-$15 for adults and only $6-$8 for kids ages 3-12 (season and reserved tickets are also available here). If you opt to purchase the season tickets, adult season pass is $36 and child season pass is $18. The opening ceremonies are filled with lights and pageantry and introduce you to the Tigers and their opponents. The Tigers first home meet will be on January 16 as they host the Oklahoma Sooners, who won the NCAA Gymnastics Championship title in 2022 and are ranked No. 1 in the early power rankings. The kiddos will even be entertained between rotations with promotions like the Dance cam and Hug cam as well as the Tiger Girls and Cheerleaders (and Mike, of course!). They even give out gold pom-poms on every seat!
2023 is the perfect year to become a Tiger Gymnastics fan! LSU was ranked No. 4 in the NCAA’s early power rankings as the Tigers have depth returning to the lineup.
“This years schedule is exciting, tough, and full of great opportunities to demonstrate what we want this team to be,” said head coach Jay Clark. “The home schedule is one that should prove to be great for our fans. They give us such a tremendous advantage at home and we will count on them to do so again this year. We are all looking forward to getting back out there and starting our climb this year.”
