South Yorkshire Games - Gymnastics

posted 10 Mar 2016, 09:38 by J Tee

Further to the amazing performance in the Sheffield City Gymnastics Finals where Stocksbridge teams won in two categories, both squads represented Sheffield in the South Yorkshire Games this week at the English Institute of Sport-Sheffield.  More than 1,000 youngsters from Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster represented their regions in front of a full stadium and the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, who opened the games. After an exciting opening ceremony our Gymnasts got down to business performing in both vault and floor routines that they had learnt during our after-school gymnastics club. Both teams finished in 4th place! Every member of each squad performed impeccably and contributed to their overall team score. The Games has been a fantastic showcase of competitive school sport and we hope will become a focal point in the Stocksbridge Junior School calendar in years to come. Well done team Stocksbridge!!
