Our Hartford Sets
Our Hartford Sets floor & vault competition was created to enable our squad gymnasts to show everyone what they had been achieving in the gym.
Michelle Oakes & Sally Bailey created routines which would be challenging, developmental but most of all achievable. These routines have now been performed by hundreds of gymnasts from all over the Cheshire & Merseyside area, and are also being used by a number of other clubs at their competitions too.
Charlie & Michelle, with help from the Coaching team, have added new sets and tweaked the odd skill here and there to maintain the development of the gymnasts.
The main objective for all gymnasts entering the competition is to have fun, which is why we have the club motto "who grins, wins".

Another huge success! Again, it was great to see so many of our development squad gymnasts showing their friends and family their floor and vault routines. It was also great to share the competition with our friends from other clubs. Huge thanks to Team Hartford for once again stepping up to make sure that all of our gymnasts and their families have a really enjoyable day.

Hartford sets December 2017
Wow, what a day!!
It was a first for our club, 420 entries with 3 visiting clubs and what a great event it was. With Christmas music and smiling faces, we experienced one of the best competitions we have held.
The green army of coaches had been making sure that children were ready for their comp and the gymnasts families were ready to see
what their children had been working so very hard on.
We saw some of our youngest gymnasts compete for the very... first time and smiled all the way through. Even with butterflies in their tummies, they shone and performed their best to receive their "smiley face" participation medals. Some of them even went on to win apparatus medals too.
For some of our gymnasts, this was a competition to better their score from last time, and without exception, all of our gymnasts improved on their previous performances and we are very proud of them all.
As a club we achieved 33 gold, 44 silver & 30 bronze medals.
Our green dream team made sure that the event ran smoothly throughout a very long day, with jobs ranging from coaching, making refreshments, fundraising, selling leotards, judging, door duties and running. The green army also did a fab job of transporting equipment, setting up and planning before the day itself.
We are extremely lucky to have an amazing gym family who are there to support us whenever we need them. We couldn't have made this event run so well without them and we want to thank them and everyone who
took part in it for making it such an enjoyable day.
