Keysteps Gymnastics Competition

posted 8 Mar 2019, 02:55 by J Tee
Stocksbridge is developing a real culture of producing excellent gymnasts and this year has been no exception, with the addition of some talented Y3's. Every Monday after school, we have been running a dance and gymnastics club where children got to practice dance routines through cheerleading, learn key movement skills and practice routines and vaulting that would give them a chance to be selected for the gymnastics competition. This year, the competition was at Concord Sports Centre and Stocksbridge took 4 teams, 2 in the Foundation category and 2 in the Advanced. Each competitor had to demonstrate a routine with control and strength and also complete a 'Squat on' or 'Squat through' vault for a chance to compete in the South Yorkshire Games. Last year, we had 3 teams go through, so the we were very optimistic however, the standards from other schools were extremely high. We fell just short of that illusive top spot however, we could not have performed any better on the day, which is all i every ask of my children. Well done everyone and we look forward to more success in the future...
