Today was the turn of our newly created Sports Acrobatics squad. Over the last 6 months, Coaches Stephanie, Zoe and Samantha have been working so hard with such a dedicated bunch of gymnasts to find the perfect partnerships. Today’s competition was the first time that any of our partnerships have competed together in an external competition!
Sports Acrobatics competitions are a whole new ball game to us as a club so it was great time to get a gauge of the other clubs that typically enter from Yorkshire to then hopefully build a network with them. It’s all about experiences for our gymnasts!
Katie T/Evie G and Emily Mar/Alyssa R (a massive thank you to Emily Mar for stepping in due to an injury) competed in the ‘Beginner grade 1 pairs – column 3’ category. The column 3 part meant that both pairs performed the hardest skills in that particular grade – absolutely superb job girls. After some gorgeous routines, Katie T/Evie G placed in 3rd and Emily Mar/Alyssa R placed in 2nd! Fantastic girls!
Abi L/Kacie-Mae P competed in the ‘Beginner grade 2 pairs’ and performed a beautiful routine, bagging themselves a bronze medal!! Well done girls!
Hollie G/Caitlin R competed in the ‘Development grade 1 pairs’ in a competition bursting at the seams with pairs! It was the busiest section of the entire day! Both Hollie and Caitlin performed their ‘Oompa Loompa’ inspired routine beautifully and did themselves so proud!
Esme A/Millie W and Ellie-Rose P/Olivia D competed in the ‘Development grade 2 pairs’ and once again triumphed in their own personal best performances! Esme and Millie wowed the crowd with a unique rendition of the ‘Pirates’ music and Ellie-Rose and Olivia raised the roof with a jazz style number! Both pairs did themselves so proud.
Finally, it was onto our trio partnerships! Emily Mac/Leila B-T/Evanna M and Emily Mar/Brooke B/Molly T competed in the ‘Development grade 3 trio’ section with their brand new routines. Both routines were performed excellently and to our delight, the podium was shining blue!! Emily Mac/Leila B-T/Evanna were placed in 3rd and Emily Mar/Brooke B/Molly T were placed in 2nd! Absolutely awesome!
Overall, the Sports Acrobatics squad have 100% outdone themselves and really proved that they’re totally awesome. We’re so proud of each one of you for not only competing in your first ever Sports Acrobatics competition but the first one that SCGC has ever been to too!! Simply fantastic
Another great big thank you to Holly Rowney and her team at Normanton Sports Acro for organising a brilliant local competition! All of our gymnasts have loved it.
A huge thank you to all the parents for baring with us with the recent organisation of new partnerships and new leotards etc! Your support is very much appreciated and never forgotten.
Finally, a super massive thank you to Coaches Steph, Zoe and Sam for being on hand to support the gymnasts today and every single week when the girls are training in the gym. You are fabulous!!
