Ellan Vannin Gymnastic Club has just held its 5th annual Summer Camp. This year our Club has welcomed Garstang School of Gymnastics, Lancashire County Squad and Wire Gymnastics Club.
Garstang and Lancashire County Squad arrived at the beginning of the week for a full training programme together with organised activities. The Wire Gymnastic Club travelled to the Island on the Saturday for a full day training and to also compete in the summer camp competition which was held on the Sunday.
All gymnasts rose to the challenge of the organised training programme set by our Artistic Coach Valery Molchanov.
As well as the full training schedule, the gymnasts also enjoyed the activities that had been organised for half way through the week and despite the weather still managed to paddle in sea at Port Erin and then endure a 3 hours Apeman Adventure and to finish enjoyed a lovely BBQ to end a lovely day out.
The club would like to thank all Parents and Coaches involved, from all clubs, who have assisted in making our Summer Camp enjoyable for everyone. Without the help and support from all of our volunteers, the club wouldn’t be able to organise such a fantastic Summer Camp.
Family night out to support the IOM Gymnastics team travelling to Bermuda for the Island Games.
All funds raised go towards the team travel costs
Ellan Vannin Gymnastics Club – Display Team ‘Asteria’
Many Congratulations to Asteria on winning Isle of Man’s Got Talent, this was a fantastic achievement by all involved.
The Club is very lucky to have Jenny as Choreographer and stunt coach. She has fantastic vision for what sounds and looks good on stage, and the effort of being drilled in practice, and waiting for Jenny to say what is to be the final routine was completely worth it.
But this was a real team effort from the gymnasts, whether they were lifting, throwing, catching, flying, dancing or tumbling this is what team work is all about, and each and every gymnast was an equally important part of this winning act.
And just as much of a team effort goes on behind the scenes, with chaperones, hair, make up, and costumes, the list is endless.
Well done one and all and a massive thank you to everyone who has been involved in this production.
