Newsletter 7 December 2017

Really short newsletter this week.

First of all congratulations to Jess Hodder and Amber Stevens who won bronze and silver medals respectively at the league finals at the weekend. A great weekend for the Club and I know that Emily Smith and Charlotte Dean- Grainger enjoyed the experience too of competing in the Olympic velodrome. Thanks again to Steve Manning, Sophie Clift and Jacqui Gevaux for volunteering their time to officiate and coach during the finals.

End of Year Fun bounce and Fancy Dress Synchro

All Robertsbridge and Dorking Gymnasts are invited to celebrate the end of the season with us at Dorking Sports Centre (RH4 1SN) this Saturday from Noon to 2pm.  Parents are encouraged to join us too either to watch or have a go on the trampolines.   Unfortunately Coach Sophie wont be there on Saturday so there wont be any DMT running during the session.

Competition Entries for 4th February

I forgot to add in that competition entries are paid by transferring the £18 to the Club account 402437 11407104

Finally with winter finally here just to let you all know that if we have to cancel sessions due to snow I will email everyone as soon as I know and put a message on the Club facebook page

It is a closed group only open to parents and gymnasts aged over 18 so if you are not a member you have to send a member request.

End of year fun bounce and fancy dress synchro competition – Dorking Sports Centre  RH4 1SN Saturday 9th December  1145-1400

All gymnasts and their parents are invited.   Parents can have a go on the trampolines or the DMT. A great opportunity for us all to celebrate another successful year with festive music.  Prizes for best fancy dress and those taking part in the synchro competition.

Come join us for mince pies, sweets and other health foods.  Coach Lauren Hill will be selling homemade jewellery items and there will be a raffle.      If any parents have any items to donate for the raffle please bring them in the night before.


The Club desperately needs new judges.   The courses available are:

9th and 16th December     K2 Crawley

20th and 27th January        Jumpers Rebound Centre  Gillingham

These have to be booked through the BG website    On the homepage click on find a course then put judging and trampoline in the appropriate dropdown boxes.   The course costs £100.    We have no funding for this so parents will have to pay for the course. Once parents judge at a competition club will pay back half the fee as well as paying mileage expenses to the competition (28p per mile). The same for the second competition and all future competitions we will pay mileage expenses.

No previous trampoline experience is required but please let me know if you book onto one of these courses so we can go through the basics of judging before going on the course.

English Championships 2018

Advance notification that the southern qualifying event will be held at Gillingham on 7th/8th April.

We don’t yet have dates for the League for 2018.

Dorking News

First of all if any parents would be willing to take on the role of volunteer press officer for Dorking please let me know. Kezia’s mum would be willing to give training and contacts in the local press.

Friday night DMT will be running as usual on 1st/8th/15th December.

Coach Sophie Clift is at the league finals this weekend so no Saturday DMT on the 2nd. Open session on the 9th.

Setting up for DMT on Saturdays is proving to be troublesome.  Court 6 is only available from 1230 as the sports centre staff have to move the wall and this usually takes around 20 minutes, sometimes a little longer. We have tried to inflate the landing zone whilst the wall is being moved but last weekend one of the sports centre staff wheeled a section of the metal framed wall right over the live cable which could have resulted in an electric shock. To prevent a re-occurrence Coach Sophie and Coach Maddy will now have to wait until the wall is moved and extra sections are in the store cupboard by court 6 before inflating the landing zone.  If any parents would be willing to help set up the equipment needed please let Sophie Know. If there are enough volunteers the set up should only take 10 minutes whilst the gymnasts are doing a floor warm up and stretch so worst case scenario the session on the DMT would commence at 1240.

Finally a reminder that the last session before Christmas break is Friday 15th December with sessions resuming on Wednesday 3rd January 2018.

Robertsbridge News

Another reminder that the last session before Christmas is Thursday 14th December.   Sessions will resume on Thursday 4th January. I will email out term dates and invoice for the first half of spring term in the next few weeks.

Phew!  and finally good luck to all the gymnasts competing in the league finals this weekend.
