Goodbye for Now Keiran!

Last week, RGC had to say “goodbye for now” to Keiran Crouch, a highly accomplished gymnast and outstanding coach from Canada, with whom we had the pleasure to work alongside over the last 5 months. On behalf of us all in RGC, the Team and Gymnasts, thank you again Keiran! You will be missed, at least until we see you in Galway again! 20170322_200754IMG_8600IMG_8601

Following on from the success of last year’s first ever RGC Participation Event called GymSTARS, we are delighted to run this again in 2019 and invite selected gymnasts to take part.

This is an event run in a similar format to the standard gymnastics competition. Athletes have been working on building their routines in classes over the past month and are invited to showcase their skills for family and friends on either floor, vault or both!

The day is all about celebrating each child’s individual successes and all participants will receive medals and certificates.

Event Details

Date: Saturday 16th March 2019
Time: 8am-3pm (time of performance of each gymnast will be shared after entries are closed)
Location: Sportsdome, Salerno Secondary School, Threadneedle Road, Salthill, Galway

Gymnast Entry Fee: Gymnast Entry – €20
Spectator: €5 per person

Registration Deadline: Tuesday 5th March 2019

Cancellation Policy: Please note that if you enter and later decide to cancel, credit for fee paid cannot be provided once medal and certificate order has been submitted.

How to Enter

We have now placed the entry fee on your club member ledger. To confirm your wish to enter this competition, please follow these steps:

  1. Login to your club member account –https://app.iclasspro.com/parentportal/renmoregymnastics/
  2. Go to ‘Make a Payment’ located on the left of the parent portal site just under ‘Payments’
  3. Make a payment of all fees due incl. the entry charge
  4. Reply to this E-mail to inform number of spectators (adults and children) – we will place spectator charge on your account for payment.

Gymnasts in the Following Levels Have Been Invited

– Kinder Master aged 5+ (Kinder Beginner & Kinder Learner have a separate display in June and aren’t participating in this event)
– Entry Streams (Entry Beginner, Learner, Master) [Boys & Girls]
– Recreational Levels 1-6 [Boys & Girls]
– Rhythmic Intermediate 2
– Teens

How it Works
All participant groups will be assigned an Optional Skills List. Gymnasts and coaches will build a routine from this list. As it is not a set routine this will give gymnasts the chance to pick their specific strengths or favorite skills to perform. Each routine will be performed on a single floor strip for members of the recreational and artistic programs. Gymnasts will also be given the option to perform an additional vault.

Volunteers
We are always in need to parent volunteers to help on the day. Please let us know if available.

Women’s Artistic and Tumbling Competition 1st and 2nd December 2018 Look Back

On the 1st and 2nd of December we had some of our youngest competitive members take part in the level 2 competition. The girls competed across three sub levels 2A, 2B and 2C. In these early years every competition experience is very valuable as the girls learn the skills of being a good competitor. They must learn to stay focused and remain cool and calm under pressure, and these young competitors are off to a great start. They showed confidence as they competed their compulsory routines that they have worked hard on over the last couple of months. Girls keep up the great work! Below are the levels these girls took part in along with some results.

We also had some of our WAG Intermediate girls competing. For most of these girls it is their second time competing in a national event. These girls have made some big improvements over the last couple of months.
 
2A O11
Caoimhe G.
Saoirse H.
Ciara M.
Amy Rose M.

Finally, we had our Intermediate Team which included Kate, Siofra, Ingrid, Eimear. With little to no mistakes, the team had a great competition. These girls have had a lot of competition experience and it shows. They took home the Gold medal. Well done girls.
