WEST Coast Cal­is­then­ics is celebrating its tal­ented youth with al­most a third of the state ju­nior team com­ing from the Dun­craig-based club.

Last year, ju­niors aged seven to 10 from var­i­ous cal­is­then­ics clubs around Perth at­tended work­shops to learn the rou­tines to pre­pare for a state trial, which took place in front of a panel of se­lec­tors.

Six of the 20 cho­sen were from West Coast Cal­is­then­ics Club, in­clud­ing eight-yearolds Casey Munro-Smith (Kings­ley), Genevieve Crock­ett (Mul­laloo), Kayla Ngarimu-Ge­orge (Craigie) and Emily Abra­ham (Bal­la­jura) and nine-year-olds Lily Smith (Kings­ley) and Mia Rooney (Clark­son).

The girls will head to Syd­ney in July to rep­re­sent WA at the Aus­tralian Cal­is­thenic Fed­er­a­tion Na­tional Cham­pi­onships. To pre­pare, they have been train­ing every Sun­day for five to six hours on top of their usual club train­ing for two hours every Mon­day.

“The girls are work­ing re­ally hard and with won­der­ful pos­i­tive at­ti­tudes, they have shown great de­ter­mi­na­tion to this point and are mak­ing great progress,” coach Sacha Lee said.
