Congratulations to our National Stream athletes who competed in the 2018 Senior State Championships. This competition was the final qualification event for those wishing to compete at the 2018 National Gymnastics Championships.

A special congratulations to Olivia T. who placed 6th on Tumbling in the U11 Women’s competition and Anastasia G. who placed 6th on Double Mini in the U15 Women’s competition.

Olivia (pictured below) will be representing the Youth Club as a member of the State Team at the National Championships which will be held in Melbourne later this year. She is one of only a handful of athletes on the 2018 State Team to qualify for Nationals across all three individual disciplines (Trampoline, Double Mini and Tumbling). Tully A. also qualified for Nationals but has declined to attend. Anastasia was unfortunately unable to qualify on either of her two events.

National Stream State Trial 2 – 2018

Congratulations to our National Stream athletes who competed in yesterday’s State Trial 2. It was a long day for all with the competition stretching over 10 straight hours so we would like to use this opportunity to say a special thank you to our volunteer coaches, judges and spotters, without whom these competitions cannot go ahead. Being a small club we are always struggling for numbers so we are immensely grateful for the continued support of our members who show up time and time again to lend a hand and support their club.

Two of our athletes have now qualified for the State Team in at least 2 events. They will now be working hard in the lead up to their next event. Our National Stream athletes will be back in action at the end of April for State Championships.
