For most of our competitive squad gymnasts their competitive season begins at the beginning of the year with Grades; Club, Regional, National or Compulsory. The first to compete were our younger gymnasts who will be turning 8 at some point in 2016. All of our gymnasts passed their first club grade 6, with Ella Ham, Leah Coombs and Carys Maslin achieving commended and Pollyanna Morris, Hannah Troughton, Lilly Jones, Bella Laventure and Grace Price achieving distinctions. Hannah and Pollyanna also made the South East team to represent the area in Welsh finals. Our Club grade 5 girls were also successful and all achieved commended.
The weekend of 12/13th March saw hundreds of gymnasts from across Wales all competing to pass their regional grades, as well as the Welsh club grade finals. All gymnasts passed their grades! Special mention to the following girls who placed AA in their grade/age group:
Madeline Connelly- 3rd AA Regional Grade 1
Ashleigh Troughton- 4th AA Regional Grade 2
Anwen Good- 3rd AA Regional Grade 3
Ellie John- Welsh Regional Grade 3 Champion!
Ami Howarth- 6th AA Regiona Grade 4
Sienna Wilkinson- 5th AA Regional Grade 4
What a great start to the year for all of these girls and their coaches.
