Results from the Zonal Schools Trampoline competition are now available on our Downloads page!
Well done to everyone who took part!
Congratulations to Ava, Isabel and Ollie who all competed in the Zonal Schools Trampoline Competition in Newcastle this weekend! This competition was the second round of the BSGA Trampoline Competition, with all three earning their space at a qualifying event in Billingham in December.
Qualifiers from across the North of England, North West, Yorkshire and Northern Ireland all took part in this event, with everyone battling to earn a space at a the prestigious National Schools Finals, being held in Eastleigh in March 2020.
All 3 Members performed full routines, with Isabel helping her school team place 2nd and securing her space in the National Finals, while Ollie placed 2nd in his age category and also earning his spot in the Finals!
Well done to everyone who competed and their Coaches, and good luck to Isabel and Ollie in the National Finals later in the year!
The first Award Assessment week will begin on Saturday 25th January, with all classes through to Friday 31st January giving AAAsports Members the opportunity to earn their next Award!
All AAAsports Members work towards the British Gymnastics Award Scheme within their classes, providing fantastic opportunities to show progression and development in their chosen activities. Each Award gets progressively more difficult as Members move through the criteria, and are designed to complement the development of the more complex skills found across our activities!
Members who earn an Award will be given a confirmation slip, which can then be used to purchase the accompanying badge and certificate from their class for the next two weeks! Members can then track their progress through the Skills Tracking facility in their myAAA account!
Due to the nature of the assessments taking place, our classes can look very different during Assessment Week! We therefore recommend that parents read a little more about the structure of our activities on our dedicated Awards page, and check out how to monitor the progress of each Member in our Skills Tracking guide!
New stock has now been delivered to AAAsports, including a replenishment of our AAAsports T-shirts and hoodies!
You can look the part in our official merchandise, as well as buying a shiny new leotard for training in our classes, with a wide range to pick from in a selection of colours and designs!
Our January sale also continues, with some items up to 50% off - grab yourself a Mr Smiley T-shAAAshopirt for just £6, or leotards for as little as £15!

AAAsports Squad Members in Gymnastics, Trampoline and DMT are invited to attend our February Squad Training Day, to be held on Friday 21st February 2020, from 9am to 4pm! Spend the day learning new skills with your Coaches, ready for the upcoming competition season!
Gymnastics Members will spend their day refining their skills and learning new ones on all 4 apparatus pieces, with longer rotations on each piece to provide additional practice time. Trampoline Members will get the whole day on Trampoline, developing their skills and improving their routines ready for the next competition!
A full day of Squad Training is just £20 for the whole day from 9am to 4pm at AAAsports Sunderland!
To enrol, simply log in through your myAAA account here.
All AAAsports Gymnastics classes are 90 minutes long, meaning Members get to use all 4 apparatus pieces in every class! Unlike many other providers who only allow their Members to use selected pieces during each class, AAAsports Members can learn skills on bars, beam, floor and vault during every class!
So we're asking - what's your favourite piece of Gymnastics apparatus? Do you love the feeling of flying over the vault? Does the grace and elegance of beam tick your boxes? Do you adore the challenge that bars provides? Or does the mix of power and dance make floor your favourite?!
Let us know your favourite on our Facebook page!
AAAsports operate classes at the Louisa Centre every Wednesday and Thursday, bringing our fun-filled Gymnastics and Trampoline classes to Stanley for everyone to enjoy!

A fantastic viewing gallery offers parents a great view of our classes, where they can watch our Members developing their newest skills and interacting with our fully qualified Coaches. Members at the Louisa Centre also get the benefits associated with all AAAsports locations, including access to the AAAsports Championships, AAAsports Academy, Skills Tracking, Squad Trials and more, including full insurance cover for all Members!

A little reminder for our 100+ new Members who have joined us this month - your first set of class fees are charged today!
AAAsports have a unique payment system which allows Members to pay by card every month to secure their spaces in our classes - no need to remember to bring class fees every week, our system automatically sorts out payment with ease!
Members can check their current balance, make payments on the date that suits them, view their payment history and receipts all from the comfort of their own home through their myAAA account! Our Members seem to love the convenience that myAAA offers, and is all part of our desire to make things as simple as possible for all of our Members!
Gymnastics, Trampoline and Cheerleading are all sports filled with danger, yet here at AAAsports we have an amazing safety record. This is thanks to the training and experience our Coaches receive when working to achieve their coaching qualifications, helping them to provide safe, effective progressions for all of our Members.
Each Coach is trained on skills that they can deliver and supervise in our classes, starting from simpler skills at Level 1 and progressing all the way up to incredibly complex Olympic-standard skills at Level 4 and 5. AAAsports are proud to have Coaches at all coaching levels, including 2 x Level 5 High Performance qualifications - the highest qualifications in the UK!
Our Coaches are committed to ensuring that skills taught in our classes are within their qualification status to help protect all of our Members during the time in our classes - sadly we know not all providers operate in the same way, which can cause skills to be delivered incorrectly, and even put participants at risk.
The experience of our qualifications also helps our Coaches to identify when our Members are ready to move on to more complex skills, and when a little more practice is needed! And with such a wide variety of qualifications available at AAAsports, our team can often be found working together to make sure they get the very best results for every Member!
AAAsports Members will become Film Stars for the day during February Half Term holidays, as Hollywood takes over AAAsports Sunderland for a day of fun and games all themed around the movies!

Our show-stopping Hollywood day will happen on Wednesday 19th February from 9am to 4pm at AAAsports Sunderland - spaces are very exclusive and at just £20 for the day, we're expecting a sell out! To book reserve your space, log in to your myAAA account now!

Double Mini Trampoline (DMT) is an exciting and powerful sport, combining the somersaulting skills of Trampoline with the speed of the gymnastics vault.
DMT gymnasts run down a 20m track towards the apparatus, perform one skill on the apparatus and then one skill dismounting on to a landing mat. Many of our Members perform double somersaults both on and dismounting the DMT!
Members start by performing simple skills on the DMT, including basic shapes and twists, before progressing up to somersaults and then multiple somersaults!
AAAsports have a fantastic history of successful DMT competitors, including multiple medal winners at the Trampoline League Finals in 2019. For more information on DMT click here, or contact us if you'd like to try our DMT classes!

Safeguarding is the actions taken by an individual or organisation to promote the welfare of children and to protect them from harm. AAAsports prides itself on upholding the highest standards of safeguarding across all of our Classes and activities, with every AAAsports Coach undertaking Safeguarding training on a regular basis.
AAAsports has two fully trained Welfare Officers, who oversee the implementation of our policies and procedures, along with a qualified Safeguarding Tutor, and our Coaches are always ready to listen to and report any concerns that they may have or are reported to them.
And it's the small things that really make a difference. Ever wonder why we don't allow photography in our classes, why we don't accept Friend requests on Facebook or why we require Members to be collected from within our centres? This is to ensure the safety of all of our Members at all times and provide a safe space for them to enjoy their activities with us.
We would expect anyone looking after our children to adhere to the highest standards around, so we expect the same for the classes we provide for our Members too! We are proud to adhere to the best practice guidelines provided by both British Gymnastics and the NSPCC, with copies of our policies stored in your myAAA account for everyone to read!
If you have a concern or would like any further information on our Safeguarding policies, please contact us on 03335 776787!
