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.”
