Athena Gymnastic Academy had plenty to write about this year. The gymnasts have impressed at all levels, winning over 50 medals at local competitions as well as getting gold and bronze medal at a National Competition in Stoke.
Gymfusion2013, which was held in Newcastle was a great success for both the mainstream squad and the Disability Squad with some superb reviews of the routines which were superbly done. Then to top the lot Athena Gymnastics Academy also won some top awards for their achievements within the year.
Athena who are based at both Shildon Sunnydale Leisure Centre and also Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre are now putting finishing touches to their own annual Christmas Showcase. The showcase, which takes on a Musical Theme this year, takes place on Saturday 7th December at the Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre in the main hall. It starts at 2pm but all the fun begins at 1pm when the doors open. We will have many Christmas Fayre style competitions for everyone to try, including, raffles, sweet tombola’s, craft stalls to name a few.
This showcase only has one performance so to reserve your tickets contact Sam on 01388 605946, but these tickets will go fast so book now to avoid disappointment. If your children have an interest in Gymnastics and would like to know what we do in the many recreation classes that we offer, come down for a great afternoon’s entertainment as every rec class will be represented in the showcase.
