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.
This year we are excited to welcome three new Trampoline and Tumbling coaches to our team, Rhiannon Bainat, Jaime Mader and Liam Merchant. The Youth Club has also purchased a new set of skipping ropes, a new wedge and a new set of boxes for our Trampoline and Tumbling program to replace ageing equipment.
We can also confirm that this years ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Miranda Cenotaph has once again been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We encourage you to instead mark the occasion at home.
Please be aware that Term Fees have increased from 2020. Enrolment in a 1 hour class for a 10 week term will now cost $150 while a 2 hour class for a 10 week term has increased to $250. The annual registration fee of $60 for Trampoline and Tumbling and $40 for Karate must also be paid.
Finally, a reminder that our COVID Safety plan remains in effect. For the safety of our members, please DO NOT come to training if:

Here’s to another great year of fun and fitness at Miranda RSL Youth Club!
Holiday training commences today for selected athletes. Please confirm your attendance for each session with the activity supervisor prior to attending. If you or an immediate family member is unwell or you have attended any of the locations listed on the NSW Health website, stay home and get tested.
All patrons will be required to wear a mask when attending the Youth Club except whilst training. All non-registered members will also be required to sign in via QR code. As such, parents and siblings should remain outside the Youth Club when dropping off or picking up members. If you have any questions or wish to speak with your activity supervisor, please get in touch via phone.
Be sensible, stay safe and we look forward to having you back for another year of fun and fitness at Miranda RSL Youth Club.
This year, we were unable to hold our annual Display Day event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, we held a Showcase Week and invited family and friends to sit in for a class to give our athletes the chance show off their routines and all the new skills they have learnt this year. During this week, we also presented our Perpetual Trophies for 2020.
