Another hugely successful weekend for the Squads at AAAsports this weekend, with Members taking part in competitions in both Hartlepool and Southampton!
Travelling down to the south coast, the Trampoline & DMT Squads were competing in their first Trampoline League event of the year, battling to gain important qualification points towards the League Finals later in the year. The Squads performed exceptionally, with a number of high placing results and plenty of qualification points heading back to our Members! Some successes included:
* Ollie - 1st in DMT, 2nd in Trampoline and 3rd in Synchro
* Bradley - 2nd in Trampoline and 3rd in Super League Trampoline
* Dan - 2nd in Trampoline and 3rd in Synchro
* Nathaniel - 2nd in DMT
* Matthew - 3rd in DMT
Meanwhile a little closer to home in Hartlepool, the Development and Performance Gymnastics Squads were tackling the Club and Competition levels of the Floor & Vault competitions! Against some very difficult competition from other clubs in the area, AAAsports Members rose to the challenge and continued the winning weekend feeling with some excellent podium finishes!
* Hannah - 1st (U12 Club)
* Callie - 5th (U12 Club)
* Niamh - 4th (O14 Competition)
* Charlotte - 5th (U14 Competition)
Congratulations to everyone who took part in these events and to the Coaches that helped our Members achieve these fantastic results! Click here to see the results from the Trampoline League, and download the Gymnastics results below!

New and existing Members experienced an action-packed Easter Fun Day this week, all thanks to AAAsports Leadership Academy Members!
Aged from 12 to 16, our Leadership Academy Members took on the task of organising an event as part of their 'Intro To Events' qualification. Whilst our Coaches were on hand to assist with the coached activities in the event, the entire day was planned, organised and delivered solely by our Academy Members.
The event was a huge success, with over 60 people taking part across a huge variety of ages and abilities, including pre-schoolers and parents! 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!
