Happy New Year

As we welcome in a new year we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who continues to support our club.

We have a great team of coaches and many volunteers who we depend on to run classes. We also have a fantastic team of sport leaders and young helpers who help in all the classes. Thank you to you all.

Thank you to the fundraising team who have got us off to a brilliant start raising over £10,000 for our 50k for 50 years campaign. They’ll have lots more activities 2022 so we can get closer to our target to install pits in the gym.

We have a number of parents in the gym who help us out, from moving equipment to fixing lights – it’s all appreciated.

This year we sadly lost Mr Buckley who had been our leader for so long. We will always be grateful to him for his expertise and wisdom.

It has been great to join forces with Buckley Boys Gymnastics this year who have a great team and we look forward to seeing more of the boys at Gwernaffield.

Thank you to all our gym parents who have adapted to all the changes we have made due to Covid and finally thank you to all our of gymnasts who have been brilliant as ever.

We’re looking forward to a new year and what it will bring for our club.

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year.

Two new captains have been selected for the club.

Emilia has been at Buckley Gymnastics Club since 2018 and has represented the club on numerous occasions.

Joshua started in Preschool at three years old and he trains in the Advanced class.

Emilia, who is also an Advanced class gymnast, has completed her Level 1 coaching course and helps in three other club sessions. She is also studying for her A levels.

“I feel really honoured to be trusted as club captain,” she said.

“I’d like to thank all the coaches and everybody working at Buckley Gymnastics Club. This club is like my family.

“While I’ve not been in the club as long as many other gymnasts, Buckley has always been so welcoming to me and all other gymnasts, and I am proud to be a part of this club.

“I will forever be a Buckley girl and I hope I can show this through my role as club captain.”

Joshua said said he was “very happy and grateful to have been chosen”.

“I love gymnastics and I really enjoy being part of the Buckley team,” he said.

“Thank you to my coaches and teammates for always making each session fun.”

The coaching team have explained why the pair were selected.

Shelley said: “Emilia is a pleasure to have in the gym and is a great role model for our younger gymnasts.”

Lynsey said: “Josh is not only a fantastic gymnast, but he is also polite, hard working, dedicated and committed to improving himself and others around him.

“He is a delight to have in our club and is a fantastic role model for the other boys.”
