As the competition season starts to heat up, it was back to the Gymnastics Squads this weekend as they travelled to Redcar to compete in the North Grades Gymnastics event!
For many of our Members, this was the first time competing in this event - for some it was their first ever competition! Competing across Bar, Beam, Floor and Vault against very strong competition, the girls were both aiming to achieve a Top 6 finish and to gain achievement levels in the event!
Despite some simple mistakes and lots of pre-competition nerves, our Squad Members produced some excellent results, including Emma placing 5th, Ruby placing 3rd and the U12s team placing 2nd! In addition, every Squad Member achieved a 'Pass' in their chosen levels, with Grace, Emma and Ruby all achieving a distinction in the chosen level!
Well done to everyone who took part and their Coaches - full results can be found on our Downloads page!
Trampoline Members from across AAAsports travelled to Northern Ireland this weekend to compete in the Zonal Schools Trampoline Competition. Having qualified to compete in this event back in December in Ashington, Ava, Dan, Hannah, Ollie, Sam and Tom all flew across the Irish Sea to compete against the best competitors from Yorkshire, North West and Northern Ireland. Competition was fierce, with everyone aiming to qualify to the National Schools Trampoline Finals being held in March in the West Midlands.
All 7 AAAsports Members performed excellent routines and came away with some fantastic results, especially Ollie, Dan and Sam who all finished on the podium and qualified to compete in the next round! Well done everyone!
Following the competition, the team took the chance to visit the sights of Belfast, including the Titanic Museum and the Dome at Victoria Square! An excellent weekend for everyone involved - check out our Facebook page for more photos and videos from the competition!
AAAsports hosted the first Regional Trampoline & DMT NDP competition of the 2018/19 season this weekend, with Members from across our Intermediate Squads taking part in the event.

* Emily - 1st - TRA Club Age 7-8 Female
* Mya - 1st - TRA NDP 3 Age 11-12 Female

* Ava - 2nd - DMT NDP 1 Age 9-10 Female
* Isabel - 1st - DMT NDP 1 Age 13+ Female
* Mya - 1st - DMT NDP 2 Age 11-12 Female
This event also proved the incredible support shown to us by our our Coaches, our Academy Members, our Squad Members and their families, many of whom spent the entire day at AAAsports Sunderland helping to make sure the event was a success. Many of our Members provided help in our Marketplace, supported other Members and even judged throughout the day, all before helping to return the facility to its normal setup ready for classes the next day. Thank you to all of our Members and their families who helped make this day a success for everyone!
