The AAAsports Academy provides unique opportunities for our Members to gain qualifications and get involved in special events within our fantastic sport. In Easter 2018, Academy Members organised an Easter Fun Day as part of their 'Intro To Events' award. The Fun Day was held at AAAsports Sunderland and was totally organised by our Academy Members aged 12 to 16, with over 80 members of the community coming along and taking part!
Our friends at Capital Radio heard all about how successfully the event had been organised, and to congratulate our Academy Members they were invited to come along to the Capital Radio studios in Newcastle for a full tour of the studios!
The group were provided with a fantastic brunch on arrival and given a tour of the facilities while learning about the radio stations broadcast from the studios in Newcastle. Then the group were taken in to the Capital Radio studio where they met with Breakfast Show presenters Bodg, Matt & Hannah! In the studio there were fun and games with everyone, as well as learning more about how the radio station works and time for some photos too!
The trip was a fantastic way to celebrate the success of our Academy Members, and congratulations again to the Members who organised the Easter Fun Day event. If you'd like to get involved in the Academy in the future, simply email membership@AAAsports.co.uk!

There were a number of activities taking place, including DMT, Cheerleading, Trampoline, Crafts and a raffle, with everyone who took part receiving a special prize too!
The event also attracted national attention from British Gymnastics, with Volunteering Support & Development Manager Geoff Grant travelling from Lilleshall to attend the event. Following the event, Geoff said:
"Thank you to AAAsports and to the Leadership Academy for what I thought was a fantastic event. The event, enthusiasm and positivity on show were great to see – and speak volumes about the good things I already know about AAAsports and as a group of people!"
The AAAsports Leadership Academy is open to all AAAsports Members aged 12 and above - if you'd like to get involved then email membership@AAAsports.co.uk now!

AAAsports were proud to host the 2018 Sunderland Key Steps events at AAAsports Sunderland this week, with pupils from schools across the city taking part in this fun, exciting competition.

In addition to hosting and judging the event, AAAsports Coaches also held a Festival activity, with pupils taking part in a mini-vault competition, trampoline experience and getting to try out our bars and beam! The events were a huge success, with the following teams qualifying to the next round:
* KS1 - Grindon Hall A

This event makes up a larger qualification event, with AAAsports working with Gateshead, Newcastle and North Tyneside to run later in the year before hosting the Tyne & Wear Final back at AAAsports Sunderland in July 2018! Congratulations to everyone who took part!

AAAsports are celebrating this weekend with successes in competitions on both sides of the Irish Sea!
On Saturday, Dan and Ollie competed in the National Schools Trampoline event in Newtownards, Northern Ireland. This was the culmination of a 3-stage qualification event, with both boys earning their space at this prestigious event by qualifying through tough competitions in Billingham in December and Huddersfield in February. Despite the pressure of the high-profile event, both boys kept their cool and came away with 3rd in place in their respective events!
On Sunday, Gymnastics Performance Squad Members Annabelle, Callie, Charlotte, Hannah and Mya travelled to Spennymoor to compete in the North Grades event - the first time AAAsports has taken part in the event. All 5 girls competed routines on bar, beam, floor and vault, competing against other clubs from across the region. Despite this challenge, all 5 girls managed to gain a Commendation due to their excellent scores, with Charlotte producing a fantastic 1st place result in her category!
Congratulations to everyone who competed this weekend and to their Coaches!
On Sunday 25th February, AAAsports Members attended 2 different competitions - the Trampoline and DMT NDP Semi Final in Penrith and the Gymnastics Sport For All competition in Catterick!
In the Trampoline & DMT event there were 10 Squad Members competing for their chance to qualify to the next round in Birmingham later in the year. All the Squad Members performed great routines and passes, with Jess and Skye both scoring high enough in their DMT events to qualify to the next round at the Birmingham Arena! We also had some excellent team success, with Millie, Rosie, Samantha and Skye taking home a team DMT medal and Evie, Isabelle, Isobel and Sadie taking home a team Trampoline medal too!
In the Sport For All event, 10 Squad Members achieved a podium finish in some of the best results AAAsports have ever achieved! The Sport For All event is designed for those taking part in competitions for the very first time, making this result even more special for those competing! Some of the highlights included Alex taking 3rd in the U12 Girls category, Morgan placing 2nd in the U12 Boys category, Kacey placing first in the U14 Girls category and Abby winning the U12 Girls category with the highest score of the day!
Throughout the day it was great to see Members supporting each other both from our numerous locations and across our multiple disciplines - well done to everyone who took part and to their Coaches who helped achieve these fantastic results!

What a great weekend we have had!
On Saturday, the AAAsports Coaches headed to Huddersfield for Schools Zonal Finals where we had 3 Members taking part in a semi-finals competition.
Mya, who only trains Trampolining once a week made it through in the Under 11 Girls Novice Category. Mya just missed out on a top spot and came 4th out of 31! This was an amazing achievement for her and her Coach Emily said "I couldn't be prouder of Mya right now. She has worked so hard to get this far and her routines scored extremely high. Next year, she'll get it!"
Oliver made it through in the Under 11 Boys Intermediate Category and came 2nd out of 10! Dan also placed 2nd in the Under 11 Boys Elite Category!! Both boys did absolutely amazing and are through to the finals - National Schools! On the 24th March, AAAsports will fly over to Ireland where the Boys will compete against students on a National level which is a huge achievement.
Watching Ollie and Dan train, we know they can do really well in March, however, we are already proud of how well they have performed so as long as they enjoy the experience, that's all that matters!
If you see them around, don't forget to wish them Good Luck!!!
