Spring Open 2019

Title: Waterford Gymnastics Spring Open 2019                          

Venue: Waterford Gymnastics Club

Cost of Entry (including 3 training session's): €25

Each gymnast will train 3 times prior to the competition. 

Each kid will be required to register below. Part of your registration requires you to pick your training day - Tuesday or Thursday. Hopefully we will receive an equal split. However, numbers will be capped for each day and we may require you to change. Also, numbers for the competition are capped and are on a first come first serve basis.

Dates: 

  • Training Session No.1 - Tuesday 5th 7.10-8.10pm or Thursday 7th March 6.10-7.10pm (Tuesday class now fully booked)
  • Training Session No.2 - Tuesday 12th 7.10-8.10pm or Thursday 14th March 6.10-7.10pm
  • Training Session No.3 - Tuesday 19th 7.10-8.10pm or Thursday 21st March 6.10-7.10pm
  • Competition: Sunday 24th March 2.30-4.30pm

Why is extra training required? 

The reason for extra training is that not all kids in classes are interested in competing, so it would be unfair for them to have to prepare for competition during normal class times. In addition, competition training can be a bit slow and hence the learning is not as fast as we feel it should be during normal class time.

Routines will be allocated on the first day of training and videos of each routine will then be made available for gymnasts to practice at home. Kids should be 6 years +.

This competition is now fully booked!!
