It was all about showing off what they’ve learned over the past year at the Gloucester Gymnastics Club’s year end presentation.
Family and friends gathered at the Gloucester Recreation Centre on Wednesday afternoon, December 5 to watch the children perform before awards were presented and food was shared.
The club runs three sessions throughout the year in succession starting at 4.30pm and during the presentation, each group performed three different routines on three different apparatus.
First, each session performed a group floor routine, then they showed off several different skills on the mini trampoline before finishing with each gymnast completing an individual beam routine.
Coach Deborah Sheely was very impressed with how far each student had come, commending them for overcoming their “I can’t” attitudes into “I can”.
After the performance, Deborah handed out a few awards.

The club is looking to start succession planning for future coaches with the introduction of junior coaching for the senior gymnasts in the new year. It’s also looking to invest in some new equipment after receiving funding $3950 from the Office of Sport’s Local Sport Grant Program and a $600 donation from the Gloucester Police.
“We are so grateful for all the funding support the club has received,” club president Kim Haschek said.
The club will be kicking off it new program inline with the new school year. Visit the Facebook page for more information.
