On Sunday 19th January, 10 Squad gymnasts from North Cotswolds Gymnastics and Trampolining Academy (NCGTA) based in Bourton on the Water, attended the County Squad Trials at Fromeside Gymnastics Club, Bristol.
Two of the youngest squad members trialled for the “Mini Squad (2013/2012 born)”, Juliet Thompson and Lola Whitlock. Juliet excelled in all her routines, to pass with 80% and the top of her age group. Lola became a reserve for Mini Squad.
Lily Rose Giles entered the “County Squad (2011 born)”, the only gymnast in this category. Her first time using new skills Lily did incredibly well and has been accepted into the “Development Squad” for her age.
Also trialling for the “Development Squad (2011/2010 born)”, were Lydia McCready, Olivia Robson, Sadie Rogers and Tara Schultz. All girls showcased new skills, and for many this was the first 4-piece event they have taken place in. Lydia scored 64% and was named a reserve for this squad.
Finally, trialling for the “Development Squad (2008/2009 born)” were Charlie O’Hara, Elsie Sumner and Jessica Knight. For Jessica it was one of her first 4-piece events, where she showcased a lot of new skills. Both Charlie and Elsie made it into the Development Squad. Elsie with a score of 78%, and Charlie a score of 84% – which was the highest percentage of the day!
It was a fantastic day, with wonderful results for the gymnasts. All of the Coaches at NCGTA are very proud of their performance on the day and the hard work they put in.
It was great having all the Squads together and getting some lovely photos. Such a team of hard working, committed and focused individuals. So proud of what you have achieved so far and continue to achieve.
