Texas Prime Meet
Kim Zmeskal's Premiere Gymnastics Competition
January 20-22, 2017
"Prime Meet", it's a pun
In Texas, meat is quality graded with PRIME being the stamp given to only the most excellent cuts. These "meats" are graded so you'll know what type of experience you're getting. If they were, the quality of the venue, the competition, the food, the overall flavor and experience of our meet would certainly get the highest marks. Come try our meet and find out why we are so proud, we include it in the name.
Dallas is home to major sports teams, incredible restaurants, waterparks, Six Flags, zoos, and entertainment that will make your trip worthwhile. The hotels and venue are 5-minutes from DFW airport, in Las Colinas, so there will be no rush or commute and lots more time for the kids to have fun, take in the sights, and the parents to enjoy a Tex-Mex margarita.
Whether you're coming for the great competition, for the experience of the Saturday night Legendz Classic, or in hopes to qualify to the Nastia Cup, we're ready to welcome you to the Texas Prime and show you some hospitality.
One of the highlights of our competition is the Saturday night "all-star" competition called the Legendz Classic. Athletes from Friday's Level 9 and Level 10 competitions will be selected to comprise three teams, each captained by a World or Olympic "Legend", competing to see who will be crowned the Legendz Classic Champion. Oh, and there's autographs after. If you haven't had the chance to get first hand advice from Kerri Strugg before vaulting, a high five from Nastia after bars, or a hug from Shawn, this meet's for you.

...with special guests
Music sensation, Hailey Knox, will be performing live at the Legendz Classic on Saturday night. Come listen to her soulful, mesmerizing music and talented instrumentals to discover why she's evolved into one of the most talented pop stars in the industry.
Ragan Smith spent 2016 creating a fan following with her huge gymnastics, charismatic performances, and spunky demeanor. She will be performing a special "one time only" beam routine at this year's Legendz Classic.
DJ Jennifer Miller and Paul Paredes will keep the bass low, the energy high, and the beats as fun(ky) as always. This duo will once again put their spin on the sport of gymnastics at the Legendz Classic, picking the perfect music for each competitor.
There are nice venues, fun venues, and wow venues. Then there's the Irving Convention Center. This brand-new, masterpiece is stunning and serves perfectly to cater to our competition's needs. With on-site parking, great concessions (and amazing catering for the coaches), as well as bleacher seating, and lots of restrooms, there isn't a more prime venue around. (Have we gone too far with the "Prime" thing yet?)

We've Got Sports
Whether you're looking to catch a game or just to visit the venues (btw, Cowboys Stadium tour is incredible), Dallas is any sports fan's dream. Who knows, maybe you'll run into a player, get an autograph from Nolan Ryan, or even meet Mark Cuban?
Maybe you're looking for something a little more relaxed after the heart-pounding anxiety of competing on that beam, or maybe you just need some inner peace after being in a room with your little brother... Dallas is the place to calm your soul. With the Dallas Zoo, the Fort Worth Zoo, the Dallas Arboretum, the Dallas Aquarium, and the brand new Perot Museum of Nature & Science, you'll have plenty to keep your family busy.
A Different Kind of Park
So, maybe calm and cool isn't your cup of tea... you want something a little more wild... Dallas has you covered. With Six Flags Over Texas, you're sure to wind up with some great screams and some much needed fun.
