I'm off to Nationals for a week

The National Championships are being held in Melbourne this year and I'm going down with the NSW team as one of their judges. I'm looking forward to a great week of gymnastics. Unfortunately this means that Mudgee Gymnastics will be closed while I'm away.

Classes will resume as normal again next week, 26 May 2014.

If you want to contact me please drop me an email at sacha@gymisfun.com.

See you next week!!

Mudgee Gymnastics at Mudgee Health Expo

Come and see us at Lawson Park tomorrow (Saturday, 7th March). We'll be exhibiting at Booth 20 at the Mudgee Health Expo between 10am and 1pm.

I know we all want more rain but lets hope we get a dry Saturday.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Our Holidays Clinics were a great success!

Although many of the old faces were away on holidays we had many new faces attending. All enjoyed their classes and are keen for Term 1 classes to start.

Our gymnasts ranged in age from 4 to 14, both boys and girls, from beginners to more experienced gymnasts.

Definitely something Mudgee Gymnastics will offer again.

Our results for the NSW Country Championships (27 Sept)

What a wonderful experience we all had at the NSW Country Championships held at Orange PCYC on Friday. The facilities were amazing and it was great to be able to be a part of such a large event.

Leotards

The following link will show you what the leotard looks like and we will purchase the “classic velvet tank” navy version called “rich royal”.

http://www.gkelite.com/Gymnastics-Shopby-InstockCatalog/2011

I have been told they are a snug fit so you may like to consider the next size up to what you would normally get. However, please keep in mind leotards are meant to "fit" and are not appropriate to be worn with "room to grow into". Think of buying a swimming costume and this is how you buy leotards.
