After over a year of design, research and testing, our constant drive to be able to offer the best possible Classes has led to an exciting change within AAAsports!
From Friday 2nd November 2018 our online Skills Tracking system will go live, meaning Members can check their progress within their AAAsports classes anywhere, anytime, through their myAAA account!
The online system will allow Members to see what Awards they have achieved, what skills they have mastered in their AAAsports Classes and what they will be working on in the future! This is an exciting development for everyone at AAAsports and we can't wait to see our Members use this fantastic new service!
Members will also be able to monitor how close they are to mastering all of the skills in each of our class levels and see what skills need to be completed before progressing to our next class level!
Being able to track and monitor progression was the biggest request we received in our End of Year Questionnaire, and we're confident that this will allow our Members to do just that! All Participation classes in Gymnastics, Trampoline, Cheerleading and Pre-School are currently covered, with information being updated within 48 hours of each AAAsports class.
AAAsports are one of the first in the UK to be able to offer this level of service to our Members, along with 24/7 access to managing their own classes online, all at no extra cost to AAAsports Members. For more information on our Skills Tracking facility, click here!
Don't forget to let us know what you think of this fantastic new addition to AAAsports!
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

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!
