CLUB COMPETITION FUND RAISING EVENT
Updated: Feb 19
A fantastic day filled with all the members from Phoenix High Flyers performing there individual set and voluntary routines. The audience packed with parents grandparents friends and supporters, what a brilliant atmosphere it was and lovely to see so much support for the club.
Starting with our elite gymnasts opening the competition with some spectacular skills for all young aspiring gymnasts to see. This competition was an opportunity to offer a controlled event prior to our elite gymnasts competing in the first of the national series in March. Great work team fantastic to see the improvement and progression throughout the year the very best of luck to you all for your 2020 season, we all wish you well.
Following our elite gymnasts we incorporated our recreational members who got the chance to demonstrate what they had been learning in a competition environment. Many different abilities and age groups, which shows the pyramid of growth from 5 years old all the way up to 16 years old. The smiles on their faces having completed their routines was a picture to see. The amazing work of our team of gymnasts and coaches who give up time to work together on a regular basis. Well done coaches and gymnasts an outstanding job thank you very much for all your hard work.
Finishing the day with our up and coming NDP gymnasts levels 1 to 6 these are our Regional squad members training 6- 10 hours on a weekly basis. Demonstrating some very neat routines showing their capability to manage nerves in a competition environment.
Ninety nine percent of the gymnasts have completed all routines throughout the two qualifying events they have to attend, held from October to February. Now qualifying to the Regional compulsory final to be held in Bradford on the 8th of March. Gymnasts must complete a further two routines score 48.00 points or more finish in the top two places having also completed a range and conditioning floor routine, scoring 70% or more to pass. Good luck to all the gymnasts going forward on the Trampoline and also the Double Mini Trampoline, let’s hope we can hit our target of 100 % completion, and 75 % or more of gymnasts to qualify to the finals in Birmingham.
