World Age Group Championships

16th - 19th November - Sofia, Bulgaria

This week Fraser had the incredible experience of competing for Great Britain in the 2017 World Age Group Championships for DMT. This year they were held in Sofia, Bulgaria the week after the senior World Championships.

 

Fraser's Family travelled over to watch him compete in the event, as did Kyle.

 

Fraser's competition was on the first day of the 4 day event. He competed in the 15-16 age group against 39 other gymnasts from all over the world.

 

This was unaguably the toughest group of the whole competition and the standard of the gymnasts was incredible.

 

Fraser's prelim round was in the morning and he competed 2 solid passes which lead him to qualify for a place in the final. He was the only boy from GB to qualify for the final.

 

His final was later that evening and although his 2 passes did not go quite to plan, he still managed to finish in 6th place. The standard in this group was so high that the gymnasts who finished in 1st and 2nd place would have made the final in the Senior Mens competition with their scores.

 

This is an absolutely fantastic result for his first world championships. Everyone is incredibly proud of how he represented not only himself but also his club and his country.

 

Fraser has returned to training even more driven to work hard so he can return to the world stage next year and improve on his results from 2017.

 

Well done Fraser.

Scottish National Championships

30th September & 1st October

Well..... What a weekend this was. This was the 2017 Scottish National Championships. It was an absoultely fantastic event which for the first time was run over 2 days and incorporated tumbling as well as trampolining and DMT.

 

The club had an amazing time over the weekend and everyone performed brilliantly. See below for full results and some pictures.

 

We would also like to say a massive thank you to all of the Volunteers who gave up their time to organise and make the whole weekend run as smoothly as it did. These competitions could not be possible without all the organisers/judges/marshalls etc.

 

Thank You.

British Championships

23rd & 24th September

This weekend the British National Championships were held in Liverpool. Fraser had qualified for both Trampolining and DMT at this competition so Bruce and Kyle travelled down with him for this competition.

 

Fraser has won the DMT British title the past 2 years so he was hoping to make it a hat trick this year. Over the weekend he competed 4 solid passes and managed to retain the title for the 3rd year in a row. He really stepped up the difficulty of his passes over the last year and this really helped him to win the competition.

 

This is the first time he has qualified for trampolining so he was going into the competition with no expectations at all. The fact that he made it at all was great for him. He completed 3 very nice routines which meant he ended up finishing in 2nd place in his group.

 

Off the back of this competition, Fraser has been selected to compete fro the GB team at the 2017 World Age Groups for DMT. This is fantastic news.

 

Well done Fraser

Regional Team Finals

17th & 18th June

This weekend was Regional Team Finals. 6 of our gymnasts had qualified to represent Scotland at this event where all the gymnasts compete as one team against the other regions in the UK. It was an absolutely fantastic competition. The atmosphere was electric all the way through as a real sense of Scottish pride was given off by everyone. We were definitely the loudest region who cheered on every single gymnast when they were competing.

 

Scotland as a whole performed amazingly well. We managed to come 2nd in both Trampoline and Tumbling but the real victory was with DMT. We managed to retain our title as overall winners for a second year in a row. Well done to everyone who competed.

Spring Series 2 - Sheffield

3rd & 4th June

This weekend, 6 of us travelled down to Sheffield for the 2nd Spring Series Competition.

 

On Saturday Fraser had both DMT and Trampolining. DMT did not go exactly to plan but he had a very successful afternnon on Trampoline, coming 3rd in his group. He will Be attending British Championships for DMT and hopefully Trampolining.

 

First up on Sunday was Adam on Trampoline. He sstarted off with 2 really nice routines but had an unfortunate stumble on his 3rd.

 

Next up was Lara on Trampoline. Her group had a massive Scottish presence with 6 of the 15 gymnasts being from Scotland. She pulled off 3 outstanding routines which landed her in 1st place and a qualification to British Championships.

Bag Packing

20th & 21st May

Members of the TFH team spent the weekend at B&Ms at Fort Kinnaird bag packing to raise funds for the club to buy some new equipment. It was a very successfull weekend and we managed to raise a fantastic amount of money. Thank you to everyone who helped out and well done for doing such a good job.

Gung-Ho!

On Saturday the 13th May, 20 members of the TFH team took part in Gung-Ho!, an inflatable 5k. It was so much fun despite the pouring rain. Everyone managed round the whole course even though some of the obstacles were quite challenging.

Regional Team Finals Qualifier

18th March

This weekend all the gymnasts who had qualified competed in Perth at the Regional Team Finals qualifier. We had a massive entry into this competition with 19 on Trampoline and 8 on DMT. It was an incredibly tough competition for everyone with the standard across the whole of Scotland being extremely high. Gymnasts had to get a certain score and finish in the top 2 of their class to qualify to compete in Birmingham in June at the Regional Team Finals as part of the Scotland Regional Team. We had a number of gymnasts qualify and some who are currently in reserve place.

 

We want to say a massive well done to everyone who competed at the weekend. It was a massive achievement to make it to that competition. Also a massive thank you to everyone who helped out as judges or recorders or matters etc.
