Gymnastics training opportunity

Knowing Kimba Jackson from work I have gotten to know her son Khalil Jackson. Khalil Jackson is a 2[phone redacted] and 2[phone redacted] member of the USA Gymnastics Men's Junior National Team. He began gymnastics at 2 1/2. By age four he was on the pre-team. Finally, at age six he was old enough to begin competing - he was officially a member of USA Gymnastics!

As a competitive gymnast, he has had the opportunity to compete in Texas and surrounding states as well as travel all around the country for regional and national competitions. Each year since 4th grade , he has had the opportunity to compete and train at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs and the University of Oklahoma.

Gymnastics has already opened so many doors and given him opportunities that are generally beyond belief for someone his age. He train with some of the top coaches in the country. As a member of the Regional team, Junior National Development Team, and Junior National Team, he has had the opportunity to train with Olympians and World Champions. These experiences have also allowed him to receive training from Olympic coaches and world renowned gymnastics coaches. Most importantly, he has made awesome friends with other gymnast from all over the United States.

This is his senior year at Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, TX. The next school year at The University of Nebraska will bring great opportunities for him, academically and in gymnastics as he begins new training and competitive experiences. Khalil is being offered a rare opportunity to travel to Belarus to attend a joint training camp.  The camp will be with the Jr. National Team of Belarus at the National Training Center located outside of the city of Minsk from June 9 - 17, 2018. This trip will be completely self-funded by the familes of the gymnasts. Any financial support you could provide to Khalil would be most appreciated. Your monetary donation will help Khalil have a unique and highly productive experience that will grow him as both an athlete and young man. All donations will be given directly to Khalil.
