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.

Congratulations to our award recipients;

2020 has certainly been a year to remember and we are looking forward to what 2021 has in store. Starting Monday, we will be running a special ‘Games Week’ program to celebrate the end of the year. Term 4 classes will end on Thursday the 17th of December.

As this will likely be the last update for the year, we hope you have a very happy holidays and as always, stay safe!

Miranda RSL Youth Club would like to congratulate member Kyle Rogers on receiving a NSWCHS Blue for Trampoline Sports.

The Blue is the highest school sporting award a student can receive and is awarded for outstanding sporting ability to individuals who have represented their school, region or state with great sportsmanship. Athletes must be nominated for the award by their School or Team Manager. Recipients are then selected via a committee with only a handful of Blues awarded each year.

Kyle is the first disability student to receive this award.

Kyle is a dedicated member of the Youth Club and a six year member of the Sydney East Combined High Schools Trampoline Team. Kyle competes in the Multi-Class Boys division and has placed at least once in every year he has competed. In 2018, his final year on the Sydney East team, he achieved the following outstanding results:

1st Trampoline

1st Single Mini

2nd Double Mini

2nd Tumbling

Kyle is a dedicated athlete and an asset to the Youth Club. We commend Kyle on his achievement.
