With no end in sight to the Greater Sydney lockdown, Miranda RSL Youth Club will be introducing online strength training for intermediate to advanced athletes who wish to maintain their fitness during our prolonged closure. These classes will be free for all Youth Club members and run on Zoom by our Advanced Class coaches from 6:45-7:30pm Monday and Tuesday.


To attend a strength training session, please send an email to mirandarslyc@gmail.com with the subject ‘Zoom Training’ and we will forward the link to you on the day.

Nationals 2021 has now come to an end. This year, we had one representative, Deklyn Davis-Gardner who competed in the NAT 5 Individual Trampoline event. Deklyn finished in 12th place.

We would like to congratulate Deklyn on making the State Team and hope he enjoyed his Nationals experience. Our competitive athletes are now turning their attentions to Levels State Championships which will be held in August.

Time sure flies when you’re having fun! With almost a quarter of the year already gone, the 2021 Trampoline Gymnastics competition season is well under way.

This year, Miranda RSL Youth Club only has one athlete competing in the national stream, Deklyn Davis-Gardner. We are pleased to report that at State Trial 2, held this weekend at SGAC in Rooty Hill, Deklyn placed 4th on Double Mini Trampoline and placed 5th on Individual Trampoline in the NAT Level 5 Mens division. Deklyn’s Individual Trampoline score has also secured his spot on the State Team for the Australian Gymnastics Championships which will be held on the Gold Coast in May.

Congratulations Deklyn!

Next week is Showcase Week for our Trampoline and Tumbling athletes! Our athletes will be performing their routines for the class and showing off all the new skills they have learnt throughout the year. Parents are welcome to stay and watch their child’s class provided they adhere to our COVID safety measures. We hope to see you there!

In Term 4 2020, we will be adding a dedicated Tumbling Class to our timetable. This one hour class will run on Thursday nights from 6pm and is suitable for athletes working at Level 2 and above (Proficient in Handstands, Cartwheels and Round Offs).

This class is perfect for anyone wishing to take their tumbling to the next level including gymnasts, dancers and cheerleaders. Athletes in this class will follow a specialised strength and conditioning program designed to prepare them for learning and performing advanced skills.

If you are interested in attending this class, please get in touch so we can secure your spot.

Update as of 24th of September 2020: The 10km participation will be lifted on the 26th of September. Please see the most recent news post for more information.

In response to the latest NSW Health Advice for Sport and Recreation, Gymnastics NSW will be implementing a new 10km participation boundary for club members. This means that Trampoline and Tumbling athletes must now live within 10km of the Youth Club in order to continue to participate in our program. This change will come into effect from the 28th of August 2020. Please note this restriction does not apply to school classes or students in our Karate Program.

If you live outside the boundary and do not have another Gymnastics NSW club with a Trampoline and Tumbling program in your area, you will still be eligible to attend our club under the specialised training rule. As we are the only Trampoline and Tumbling program in the South East region, none of our members will be effected at this stage. This may change if the NSW situation worsens.

If you have any questions or are unsure about your eligibility, please contact Trampoline Head Coach Robert Bull on (02) 9522 0484.

Yesterday, Gymnastics NSW and Gymnastics Australia announced the decision to cancel or postpone all events between now and July 1, 2020. This includes the Senior State Championships which were due to be held at the beginning of April and the Australian National Championships which would have been held during May in Melbourne. If you would like to read their statements, you may do so by following the links below.

Gymnastics Australia statement regarding the 2020 Australian Championships

In light of this decision, we thought we would highlight the efforts of our only National Stream athlete this year, Deklyn D-G. 2020 was Deklyn’s first year in National Stream and he competed at both Trial events held earlier this year in the Nat5 group for under 13s. He had hoped to qualify for the State Team in Trampoline and Double Mini and attend Nationals. You can watch Deklyn’s Voluntary routine at the most recent Trial event below. Deklyn will now be re-focusing on skill development and set his sights on Nationals 2021.

Our athletes were also challenged to have a bit of fun on the day. If they did a dance move after their routine finished, they would get half strength in training on Monday! We saw some great dance moves up on the trampoline and athletes from other clubs started to join in!

Overall, we had a fabulous day. A massive thank you to all our coaches, volunteers and parents who gave up their day to support our athletes and Central Coast Youth Club for hosting the competition.
