The first English Schools Novice Competition took place at Fenton Manor, Stoke on Trent on Thursday 6th June 2019.
A wonderful feast of gymnastics was displayed at this inaugural National Championships, organised by the newly formed ESGA committee. 160 eager, determined young gymnasts aged U9 to U13 participated during the day, performing an individual floor routine, vault and paired acrobatic sequence.
Representing their schools, teams of four gymnasts from schools throughout England, performed brilliantly to provide an exciting day for their team coaches and parents.
This new competition was designed to provide an opportunity for up and coming gymnasts with the aim of furthering their experience and performance before hopefully progressing in future to the British Schools championships. Hearty congratulations were bestowed on every gymnast and school that participated in our very first Championships; all receiving a worthy certificate in recognition of their outstanding performance.
The winning school in each of the three categories received a trophy, sponsored by ‘Milano’ and ‘Gym Factor’, with a medal awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions. The superb day concluded with many very warm and complimentary comments from school coaches, parents and officials alike.
