AND…DALE IS BACK!

We are thrilled to bits to have Dale Moylan back! She was off travelling in Canada for a little while and we were counting the days to have her back.

Besides being a great gymnast, our Dale, rocks with groups from our Tumbling Tots to squads. Our gymnasts love her calm and knowledgeable way of teaching gymnastics.

Don`t let her fool you with her young looks. She has over 15 years of experience in gymnastics! And impressive power-walkovers!

Welcome back, Dale!

ANASTASIA IS BACK!

We would like to welcome back our super star Rhythmic CoachAnastasia Nirkova! She has been on her maternity leave enjoying her brand-new little bundle of joy, baby Christopher, and we have missed her dearly for the last 6 months! We are very excited to welcome her back. Anastasia is a marvelous coach and creates an air of beauty and grace in the room with her beautiful lines, knowledge and style.

We are leaping with joy, Anastasia!!

Coach Training with Carol-Angela Orchard

Visiting Coach Programme Update

Renmore Gymnastics coaches had the great fortune of working recently with the highly inspirational Canadian/GBR coach Carol-Angela Orchard when she visited the club last week on her first trip to Ireland. In addition to the 30+ hour camp that over 50 gymnasts attended for a full week, there were daily coaching clinics and seminars running to raise awareness and help develop the clubs coaching programme. What a totally inspiring and uplifting week we all had, thank you Carol-Angela we cannot wait until your next visit!

Ariel and Biomechanics

We are incredibly lucky to have Ariel coaching here at RGC. One reason, among others, being that she is using her Masters studies in Biomechanics to help the gymnasts understand the importance of angles while working yurchenko vaults. By filming with the iPad in the gym they can go through frame by frame, watching themselves, to understand the techniques!

Thanks Ariel!

Thank you Rick McCharles!

On behalf of all of Renmore Gymnastics (coaches, gymnasts, parents, etc), I would like to send a huge thank you to Rick McCharles who gave us the incredible honour of coming to Ireland to spend the better part of a week with our club. We are all amazed at Rick’s dedication to make sure that every gymnast who was in the gym during his visit got to spend some time with him, whether he was playing games with a group or showing the coaches a useful new drill.

We know that Rick’s visit has left a huge impression on all of the coaching team and we plan to put his teachings into use immediately.

Rick, you are invited back whenever you want! Enjoy Switzerland and hiking in Croatia!

Here are a couple of photos that Rick took of our facility while he was here:
