KDGC Club Championships 2021

What is it?

The Club Championships is our annual in-house competitions where our members (Boys & Girls) from Year R + get the chance to show off their skills in a five-piece apparatus competition in a fun & relaxed environment. 

Who do they compete against? 

The gymnast will compete against their individual year groups. All participants will receive a participation medal. 1st 2nd 3rd medals are awards for each apparatus piece and we have an overall winner per each age group 

Is it an all-day event?

Not at all, each year group will last approx. 2 hours. 

Can parents watch?

Of course! Our viewing gallery and lower area is turning into spectator seating. We have refreshments and hot food served all day! Spectator entry is free so we encourage you to bring the whole family! It’s a great chance to see what your child has learnt and watch them sparkle away plus there’s lots of fun activities such as guess the name of the teddy/ tombola/ raffles to get involved in.

When are routines taught?

Gymnast will learn the routines during their classes.

We are super proud of our coach Abi Miller who has been highly commended by West Berkshire council.
Abi has made a huge commitment in supporting children with her dedication to gymnastics coaching - In particular Abi took it upon herself to learn a brand new language (Italian) and learn the correct gymnastics terminology to help a new child who knew very little English settle in when joining our squad.

Grazie bella Abi! May be an image of food, road and text that says 'DO MORE THAN IS REQUIRED. WHAT IS THE DISTANCE BETWEEN SOMEONE WHO ACHIEVES THEIR GOALS CONSISTENTLY AND THOSE WHO SPEND THEIR LIVES MERELY FOLLOWING? THE EXTRA MILE. GARY RYAN BLAIR'

Competition time!!!

For creative minds - We are going to change our badge system and would like to use a template certificate created by our very own members.

We have 12 levels of badges & certificates to produce, they can be completed electronically or by free drawing or with a mixture of both. We are open to help from parents but would really like the ideas to come from the children’s ever creative minds!! If we receive a great concept that we need to help sharpen up we can do that for a final production of the certificate.

ALL AGES ARE WELCOME! There will be prizes for the winning entries and the winning certificates will be produced and used as certificates for the future badge weeks.

Help make your mark at KD Gym!!! Closing date for all entries will be 10th January 2021 to enable you all to get thinking over your Christmas Break. Entries can be emailed in or brought in if hand drawn, all entries should be A4 size.
