On Sunday 16th of February 2014, Ruthin & Denbigh Gymnastic Club invited recreational members of  Ruthin, Denbigh and Llangollen to their Annual Academy led Key Steps competition held in the Denbigh Lesiure Centre. The competition was a roaring success! and for many of the 65 Gymnasts their first taste of a competition environment. There was a diverse age range of between 4 and 13 years competing on the day, with a focus to introduce the children to the pressures of competing whilst enjoying themselves and showing their families and friends the skills they have learnt throughout the year.
This event also facilitated the development of the next generation of coaches as they actively organised the event and built on their judging skills on the day. All the gymnasts took part on a variety of pieces including beam, floor, bars and vault as well as demonstrating their range and conditioning. A parent encapsulated the success on the day  “Thank you to all the coaches and volunteers for organising such a fun yet professional event. Well done to all the Gymnasts who took part. For us it was our Daughters first competition, she was so nervous at the start of the day but by the end she was asking when the next competition is”!
The Gymnastics club now in its 14th year, prides itself on its varied programme throughout the year and  encourages every child to actively get involved in as many of these opportunities as they can as each provides a valued learning experience for them as individuals and as members of a team. The feedback from gymnasts and parents have inspired the Academy to hold another event during the Festival of Sport weekend on the 14th June and is to be held in Ruthin Leisure Centre. Please contact the Head Coach Tamsin Jones if you are interested in joining classes in Ruthin/Denbigh or Llangollen –
