Look What's Happening at Destira
It’s a busy spring event season for Destira and we love it! Most of the country feels like it is living inside a deep freeze, but that doesn’t keep us from looking ahead to thaw. The anticipation of spring keeps us looking forward — and so does our 2018 Spring Events Schedule. See where we’ve been and where we’re going. We’ve met so many athletes and supporters, and we look forward to meeting even more inspirational members of the gymnastics community.
