Well done Aiyla

AiylaWell done to Advanced class gymnast Aiyla who has been selected to attend sessions once a week with the North Area Squad, writes head coach Ceri.

The squad has been organised by Welsh Gymnastics for gymnasts born in 2010 & 2011 who are working towards the Compulsory Grades pathway. (More about progression)

Aiyla will train alongside gymnasts from other clubs every Tuesday afternoon with North Area Squad Coach Ellie Hill.

We are very proud of Aiyla and the opportunity that she has been offered. She will continue her training, aiming to make the Compulsory Competitions in March and April.

Good luck and keep up the hard work.
