We had an amazing time. They were smart, tidy, positive, hardworking and a smiling credit to the club. The work on attitude and tightness really shone through.
By far the youngest and smallest there, they held their own with the different warm up tasks from each club and proudly led the bridge section from the centre of the circle.
Floor was first and the inspiration of older gymnasts led to backwards rolls with virtually straight arms to their feet.
Walkover work was positive and they did their first (supported) handsprings, apparently anything is possible when you’re a Wetherby gymnast.
Conditioning next. The gymnasts showed how much their conditioning had improved since September. They joined the older girls on a run through of the grade 6 conditioning routine. Some elephant lift and Russian lever work followed by a rope climb, Beth just got higher and higher!
Onto vault, some flat backs standing on the table vault and then some separate work learning to fly on a handspring flat back rather than pootle over a ‘handstand flatback’
A well behaved and well deserved snack break was followed by some focussed work on hand turning on bars in back circle, with tips from other clubs leading to much improvement. Then some solid practice on our squat ons, not phased at all by strange equipment.
Final flourish on beam, our tinies tidy tight stance on beam and their jump drills had them setting the example for older girls to copy. Then some input from a fellow coach on their different but successful rolling technique led to all gymnasts succeeding in getting a forward roll to stick.
A cool down, smiley photos and it was home time.
A fantastic and fun-filled Zumba class was enjoyed by gymnasts, parents & friends in May 2017.
Nearly 60 of us Salsa’d, Merengue’d and shuffled under the expert lead of Gym Mum & Zumba coach Jacqui Binner!
A fantastic £300 was raised towards our ‘Leotard fund’. A great big thanks to Oterlie & Tracy for organising refreshments & of course to Jacqui for offering her expert tuition for free!
Tuesday the 12th September is the first beginners class of the Autumn term 2017.
I hope all the children had a great summer holiday, and practiced safely!!
For those joining us for their first session, expect an evening packed full of knowledge and fun!
If you want to be part of it, it’s not too late!

On the 22nd November Wetherby Gymnastics Club achieved a clean sweep at the Yorkshire Team Competitions at Catterick Leisure Centre. Wetherby Gymnasts competed in all four levels of competition level 5, Level 4, Level 3 and the top level in gymnastics FIG. 23 Wetherby girls competed across the four pieces of Women’s Artistic Gymnastics, Vault, Bar, Beam and Floor.
Wetherby Gymnastics Club now proudly holds the trophies from each of the four competitions for 2014.
The club has been running for over 40 years and has built a reputation for success under the 4 head coaches in that time. The recently appointed new Head Coach, Eva, a former Wetherby and England gymnast said,
“ I am so proud of the girls and their performances. Wetherby Gymnasts always believe in their determination and desire to perform with heart and soul to the best of their ability. These results demonstrate that the gymnasts continue to build on the history and success of the club. It is a privilege to be able to lead such a dedicated group of gymnasts.”
The results continue to display the club’s position as one of the most successful gymnastics clubs in the region and the girls and coaches are looking forward to a successful 2015.
