A Summer of Success! (Sussex Championships, TeamGym British, Level 4 Coaches & Squad Training)

This news update is long overdue. But as you will see if you read on... we have been rather busy! Summer is usually a quiet time for Hawth, but with a reshuffled competition calendar for 2015 we have a large number of successes to report. 


Sussex Championships

Hawth hosted this competition and it was great success - many thanks to all our coaches, judges, academy coaches and parents. 

In the Men's artistic gymnast had a great competition, winning every category they entered, our TeamGym gymnasts also brought home a large number of medals. We also had girls representing Hawth in the Floor and Vault competition where Holly won a Silver.  Well done guys! 

TeamGym British Championships

Hawth had 4 full teams and a micro team travel up to Liverpool for the British Championships. After a nightmare drive up on the Friday the teams performed well and brought home a set of Bronze and a set of Silver Medals.

Zonal & National Squad Training

Our gymnasts who have been selected for Zonal TeamGym (Jake R and Kanisha S) and National Men's Artistic (Anton A) squads have all attended training camps over the summer and worked very hard and gained some new skills, everyone at Hawth is very proud of them. Chloe W, who was injured for the initial trail session for the TeamGym squad, was offered a last minute trial after being spotted by the zonal coaches at the British Championships, she was accepted and is now a member of the squad along with Jake and Kanisha - well done Chloe!  

Level 4 Coaches

After a year of courses, log books and study Tim G has passed both the practical and theory parts of  his Level 4 (Senior coach) Men's Artistic course. Well done Tim! 

Amber SW and Kim J have  also recently spent the weekend in Crewe working towards their Level 4 TeamGym coaching course and we have 5 coaches (Karen B, Cheyenne H, Emma D, Amy H & Warren J) taking their Level 2 exams next term too

The constant development of our coaches is very exciting for the club and all our gymnasts present and future.
