West Tamar rocks the first ever Tassie TeamGym Event!

Sunday the 9th July saw PCYC Launceston the scene of the first ever TeamGym event in Tasmania!

Two teams from West Tamar Gymnastics Club performed in the Novice category in front of an enthusiastic audience to some upbeat music, displaying tumbling, single-mini and floor routines with dance, balance, leaps and jumps!

Bronze, Silver and Gold medals are up for grabs in this event, with scores from the teams dictating the colour of the medal, over the 3 apparatus.

West Tamar Team took away a Bronze and Silver medal from the event, but more than that, the participants took away the memories of a fun filled afternoon and the fact that they were the first ever participants in what will become a bigger and better event in the years to come!

Bernie Spedding from the National GfA Committee, and the unofficial Australian 'TeamGym Queen', was on hand to assist with the judging and also to take some workshops for all participants after the event, honing their skills and working towards improved performances in the future. Maybe even a performance in the upcoming National TeamGym Event in Bendigo in September and the possibility of some guest appearances at special events on the GTAS calendar.

Stay tuned in the future for what is sure to become a must go to event on the GTAS calendar!
