RGC 1st Annual Club Competition a Great Success!

Congratulations to all the athletes who participated in the 1st Annual RGC Competition on Sunday May 11th 2014. You all did a fabulous job with your routines on the day and the coaches are VERY proud of each and every one of you!

 

We had over 60 gymnasts compete the level 1A routines in the morning session. For all gymnasts involved this was their first competition experience. Although battling nervous energy each gymnast successfully competed floor routines with beauty and grace. Along with floor routines each had a vault to perform too! Gymnasts sprinted down the vault strip performing powerful vault after vault! Excellent work gymnasts!

 

In the afternoon session we saw a mixture of some of our young level 1 club gymnasts and our older pre-teens compete the 1B and 1C routines. The gymnasts made it look easy! Performing on vault and floor with fantastic strength and agility.

 

Excellent work overall by all the gymnasts involved! We can’t wait to start getting ready for next year!

Good Luck getting ready for GYMFEST!

 

Another round of applause for all the volunteers who made the day possible. Thank you for your support, time and dedication. Without you such an event would never have been possible. Anyone interested in getting involved with next years competition please let us know.

Congratulations Recreational Gymnasts!

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO THE RENMORE RECREATIONAL GYMNASTS!!!

For the first time ever our recreational gymnasts participated in a year long multi-discipline program. The new program covered basic gymnastics in artistic, tumbling, acrobatics and rhythmic.

Approximately 350 gymnasts aged 5 and over completed the first tier of ten in the assessment process over the last 2 weeks.

We at RGC are delighted with everyone’s hard work and progress this year and are looking forward to a fun filled summer with two camps running in July and two camps running in August. Summer Camps this year will also be multi-disciplined including a variety of fun new workshops, games and activities tailored to groups of all different ages.

Have a Happy Summer Everyone!
