August

 4 of Adult gymnasts & the Ceremonies team plus Charlie & Steph set up camp at  the Adult British championships held at Lilleshall NSC.  Sian Haggar, Lucy Holroyd & Carol Roberts performed really well in their Novice groups on all 4 pieces of apparatus.  Fran Hadfield took up the challenge of competing in the Introductory gymnastics comp after starting training back in January.  Fran focussed on learning and perfecting her basic skills which really paid off with a 2nd place on beam and 9th place overall.

As well as doing their usual Ceremonies duties, Team Hartford were also volunteers in a number of organisational roles throughout the very busy weekend too, recieving much thanks from the Events Team at British Gymnastics for their hard work.

Congratulations to Coach Amy Buckley for passing her Womens Artistic Club Judge qualification.

 

July

Our Girls Development Squad gymnasts who didn't attend Bolton, we asked to select their favourite skills over 3 pieces of apparatus to show to their family members in a Skills Celebration event at our gym.  The gymnast really proved how hard they had been working and how much they enjoyed their gym classes by performing with smiles and enthusiasm.


A marathon event for the Ceremonies team at the Acrobatic, Rhythmic & Aerobic Championships in Telford saw them presenting medals in 2 different arenas, sometimes overlapping.  Concentration, Teamwork and professionalism was key to the success of the ceremonies for the team and they nailed it.  

Congratulations to Coaches Nicola Ma & Andrew Cannon on passing their Mens Artistic Regional Judging qualification
