Hampshire under 8’s conditioning league – Final round, Saturday 12th July 2014

Well done to all our ‘Little Stars’ who participated in this year’s Hampshire Conditioning League, which was held at Xcel’s gym in Portsmouth over five rounds.  We hope this gave the girls a good introduction to competitions.
Amy, Brooke, Tilly Daisy, Elise and Charlotte participated in the final round on Saturday.  The girls all did really well and produced one of our strongest scores yet.

Jo Henden, Head Coach was unable to travel to Havant for this round but was in touch all afternoon and saw the results as soon as Gil got back to Fleet, she was thrilled!
Well done girls J

Aspire Summer Show - 5th July 2014

We held our Summer Show on Saturday 5th July in front of a packed audience. 
Most of Aspire’s gymnasts took part – right from the pre-schoolers to the older advanced gymnasts.

Jo Henden, Head Coach, said:  “The show as a great success!  Many thanks to our amazing gymnasts for putting on such a fabulous display and to our wonderful coaches and volunteers for all their hard work without which the show could not have happened.  The show was also a great thank you to all the mums and dads, relations and friends who support their child’s gymnastic dreams.”
