Conditioning League Round 4



Well done girls.

L-R   Beth, Poppy, Freya, Amy & Molly

 Everyone is improving with each round.

 Freya only scored 7 points last time she was in the team in April. On Sunday she scored 40.6! All her coaches have noticed the vast improvement so were delighted with her performance. She is the team's top scorer.
Thank you to Amy and Molly who have been in the Conditioning team for 3 years and are now too old for next year. Freya, Poppy, Ava and Leah are also 8 years old so will need to move on as well.
 Beth, Sophie and Rebecca will be in the team next year and we hope to have some new team members from Rec.

The top scorers will go to Round 5 at Fox GC, Fernhill school, Farnborough on Sunday 3rd July.
If anyone wants to support them it begins at 9.15am

Good Luck for Round 5 to Freya, Poppy, Beth, Molly, Amy & Ava, if she is fit and Leah is reserve.

SUMMER SHOW 16/07/16


 This is the term Aspire Gymnastics performs for all the families and friends. We are not fortunate enough to have any where suitable for parents etc to watch the gymnasts so it is especially nice to be able to put on a show of everything the children have been learning.
 Display is part of gymnastics, as is competition and the acquisition of skills. The competition season is mainly during the Autumn and Winter. Aspire rewards the skills through badges in the Spring. The Summer term is our Display term.
 Every member of the club from a our smallest 2-year-olds to the oldest teenagers are invited to take part in the Summer Show and will have the chance to perform in front of an audience. We are sure parents, grandparents and other relations as well as friends will enjoy seeing the children performing.
 For safety reasons, seats will be limited but there should be at least two spectators for every gymnast taking part. However entry is likely to be by ticket only.
 The coaches have already been thinking about the programme and all gymnasts will work on the show pieces during this term.
The coaches decided in Olympic year we should reflect that in the work. As the Olympics will take place in Brazil the theme is a combination of sports and Carnival.
 There will be some costume items needed, but think "Carnival". 
 Isabella, one of our young coaches has suggested Tie & Dye t-shirts, crop tops, shorts etc. She has prepared a fantastic flyer to help everyone.Tie & Dye is super fun and you don't even need new clothes to dye. Any light  colour T-shirt will work.  
Once we know who will be taking part in the show costume notes will be sent.

 We do need to know who can commit to the show on Saturday 16th July at 2.00pm.  You can order your tickets at the same time as confirming your child's intention to take part. Please let us know by 21st May.
 There is an entry fee/contribution to costumes etc of  £5.00 for each gymnast.(NOT FROGLETS)
With over 100 children attending gymnastics each week verbal messages get forgotten.
PLEASE use the form on the email sent, 02.05.16, to confirm that your child will take part in the show and to book tickets at £2.50 each. Children under 16 will not be charged but may have to sit on the floor! 
Come and see what your children love about gymnastics.
 Any questions do email.
​ 
 Please order your tickets by completing the slip attached to the email. If you cannot print the form write all the details on paper and send with the correct money or cheque (Aspire Gymnastics) by 21st May. We will continue to sell tickets after half term as long as some are available.
 From Gil

Hampshire Under 8's Conditioning League

This year the Under 8's Conditioning League is not being organised by the Hampshire Women's Artistic Technical committee but by each of the clubs taking part.

On Saturday, 30th April it was Aspire's turn to host a round. The club has not hosted an inter-club  competition before.   Three teams travelled from Portsmouth, one from Havant and one from Farnborough.

Most of the clubs have their own purpose built facilities and can train up to 20 hours a week. Our team trains just 3 hours a week! Three of our team have not competed before and Sophie is still only 6 years old.

They all did very well and it was good to have so many coaches and families helping on the day.

Our Team was 
Amy, Leah, Molly, Freya, Maddie and Sophie

British Gymnastics Core Proficiency Badges

Award Badges

Spring Term 2016

During the Spring Term all the gymnasts have been learning skills related to the BG Award scheme. 

The coaches awarded six pre-school badges to the very youngest gymnasts in Froglets. Twenty two children gained badge 8, seventeen gained badge  7. Seven badge 6 were awarded, four badge 5 & 4, one badge 2.

 They do get more difficult as the numbers get lower.

Amelia, 11 and  Molly, 10 began gymnastics before they went to school and this year both gained Badge 1.

As they had completed every one of the eight badges they also received a medal which Jo presented  at gymnastics.
