Yes to Yorkshire Training!

5th June 2017 – Astre Academy of Gymnastics

24 coaches, 47 gymnasts from across the region working together. Sharing knowledge, passion and inspiring one another to work hard, learn and achieve.

The Wetherby coaching team selected 6 gymnasts to attend.

They learnt new preps for upstarts, worked hard on ballet and conditioning and practiced their floor routines.

 

Thank you to Mrs N, Sharon and Emily for bringing their ideas to such a positive Yorkshire gathering.

8hours + 14 tills + 32 gymnasts = £1561

On Saturday May 27th thirty-two of our gymnasts and their families spent an amazing day at Morrisons supermarket in Wetherby

… eight & a half hours

….fourteen tills

…. hundreds of happy customer’s bags packed

… and an unbelievable final total raised of £1561.

 

A wonderful team spirit prevailed and too many compliments to mention on our wonderfully behaved, polite and hard working girls.
Morrisons thought we did such a fantastic job they have invited us back again and agreed to display our giant banner outside the store. This is a reflection of the character and behaviour of our gymnasts.

 

 
An enormous thanks to all who took part and supported us on a sunny Bank Holiday weekend, including the helpful & welcoming staff of Morrisons and, of course, not forgetting a huge thanks to the incredibly generous folks of Wetherby.
 
We also created a lot of interest in the Club and are looking forward to welcoming a number of girls for taster sessions on the beginners class.
 
Top quotes from the day
 
“The girls were brilliant… I could have just burst with pride!” … Gymnast mum
 
“Your team has been exceptional” … Morrisons representative’
