New coaching qualification for Ben

Well done to Coach Ben who has passed his Men’s Artistic Gymnastics coaching qualification.

Ben is a great asset to the club and a brilliant role model for the boys he helps to coach.

As well as theory work, Ben has been assessed on the many skills a coach needs, from planning a session to leading warm ups, working on skills and running flexibility and conditioning sessions.

Well done Ben.

Summer Invitational Competition

Well done to all the gymnasts who competed at our Invitational Competition last weekend.

We had a summer theme which our coaches and volunteers all got behind.

We hosted six North Wales clubs with over 300 gymnasts competing, some for the very first time.

Below are the results for our Buckley Gymnasts with some pictures of the weekend.

Thank you to everyone involved which includes volunteers for parking duties, judging, compering and refreshments- it all helped to make an enjoyable weekend for our parents watching and the gymnasts.

Thank you to all of the coaches for preparing the gymnasts for their competition, we’ve received lovely feedback form parents on how much their gymnasts enjoyed competing.
