Diamond Invitational Guests,

Last year’s Diamond Invitational was a tremendous success, with over 300 of the state’s most talented gymnasts competing for the gold. All gymnasts shined bright like a diamond. That is why we cannot wait for this year’s Diamond Invitational.

The Diamond Invitational is very dear to Debbie Santos, head coach, and owner of SSGA. Each year, Debbie outdoes herself. Her vision becomes more elaborate and more enjoyable for the gymnasts, judges, coaches, and parents.

The Diamond Invitational is aptly named. Debbie believes that gymnasts are like grains of sand, refined and polished over time by the coaches that serve them. The Diamond is Debbie’s opportunity to serve the gymnasts, coaches, and judges in our state. She admires and respects you all immensely.

With sincere hearts, we THANK YOU for making each of our meets a success. We look forward to seeing you this September!

Sincere Thanks,

Southern States Gymnastics
