Brand new foam vaulting table

Really pleased with our new apparatus that has finally arrived after being ordered 3 months ago! Our foam vaulting table breaks down into smaller blocks making it versatile for all of our users from beginners- development groups- freestylers! Thanks to DSYGA for their contribution towards this apparatus!

DSYGA Floor Vault and Trampet Competition

On Sunday 16th February our gymnasts travelled to Poole to take part in the DSYGA Floor, Vault and Trampet competition. It was a long day but we were delighted that the Swanage Gymnasts came away with 7 with medals for top 3 overall and multiple top 6 ribbons for individual apparatus. Every Gymnast worked extremely hard in the build up tot he competition and on the day.

Both coaches had 4 intensive days of classroom and practical activities including on course assessment- both passed the course!
