Abbey, Rathgael and Kaleidoscope Gymnastics Clubs have come together to form the ARK Network. The first ARK Event was held at Abbey in April with the 3 clubs joining together to develop the TeamGym discipline.
This was a great day of activities for the 30 gymnasts and young leaders. A wealth of information was shared with them and their coaches in order to further develop TeamGym as a discipline in Northern Ireland and Coach Holly Dornan from Kaleidoscope led a fabulous choreography session for the group.
As well as developing the programme and experiencing the various apparatus in TeamGym, our gymnasts and coaches got to know each other a little more through “the toilet roll ice breaker” and leadership games.
The day was finished off by a fantastic session at Clip n Climb Dundonald, where even the coaches had a go at climbing the walls!!!
Many thanks to the coaches and young leaders from Abbey, Rathgael and Kaleidoscope for a great day. We are now looking forward to a series of TeamGym events across the province during 2016/17 season.
