Gym­nas­tics show­case

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Motoring -

Na­timuk and Dis­trict Gym­nas­tic Club hosted its an­nual mini­com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­day.

Gym­nasts from lev­els one to five in girls and one to four in boys par­tic­i­pated across three ses­sions.

Level four gym­nast Sum­mer Cam­pey won a Len Par­fett En­cour­age­ment Award for dis­play­ing en­thu­si­asm and ded­i­ca­tion to­wards her train­ing on a con­sis­tent ba­sis.

Mr Par­fett, a life mem­ber of the club, pre­sented the an­nual award to Sum­mer.

Club pres­i­dent Amanda Carracher said the com­pe­ti­tion was run in­ter­nally, pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity for gym­nasts new to the club to get a taste of com­pe­ti­tion and for other mem­bers to test run new rou­tines. “The day pro­vides a sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment with our own coaches and judges on hand to give ad­vice,” she said.

“It gives our gym­nasts a chance to re­fine their rou­tines be­fore com­pet­ing at other venues.”

Mrs Carracher said club mem­bers were now look­ing for­ward to ‘kids coach par­ents’ ses­sions next week to fin­ish off the term.

“Each year we do­nate pro­ceeds from these ses­sions to a dif­fer­ent char­ity,” she said.

“This year we are do­nat­ing to Chris­tian Emer­gency Food Cen­tre in Hor­sham.

“Gym­nasts and par­tic­i­pat­ing par­ents can bring a non-per­ish­able food item or gold coin do­na­tion.”
