Over the last few weeks, our members have been back competing at their first in-person competitions in over 18 months! The first competition was Hemel Hempstead Regional Championships on 31st October. Finn and Willow both came away with gold medals in their respective categories, and Livs finished in 4th after a tough competition. Sophie G and Ella finished in 13th and 16th place respectively in their group and everyone performed some lovely routines!
Charlotte and Livs then headed to the National League: Bounce Back Competition on 13th-14th November. Both competed in League 2 in their respective age groups and performed some beautiful routines, earning themselves a place in the finals. They completed another fantastic routine each, and both finished in 4th place in their groups!

Welfare Officer Vacancy
The club are looking for a new Welfare Officer to represent our club members. The role needs to be filled by someone who is not a coach, but no previous experience in similar positions is required as training will be provided. If anyone feels that this role would suit them, please speak to Rachel or Andree. You need to be over 18 and do not need to be at every session. We would be happy for the role to be shared with more than one individual.

2019 League Success
A huge congratulations to Olivia, Halle, Charlotte and Jamie who have all made it to National League Finals this year!
2019 has been a monumental year for Dragons at the League series, with all 4 girls achieving incredible personal goals.
We were very excited to welcome Jamie to the League family this year, and what a great first year she had! She placed 12th in her very first League comp, 18th out of a whopping 78 at Cardiff, and then flew to 4th place in the 3rd qualifier, securing her place at finals! An incredible start to your League journey, Jamie.
Charlotte had a fantastic start to the League year too, storming to 3rd place at the first qualifiers, and placing 10th out of an enormous 104 in Cardiff. Following her League 3 success, she then tried out League 2 for the first time in Nottingham, performing 2 beautiful routines and proving herself to be a very worthy League 2 competitor!
Halz also had her first full year at League 2 this year, performing her beautiful new double back vol for the first time. They proved very popular with the judges, as she placed 5th in her first competition of the year, and carried on to take home a very well deserved bronze medal at Nottingham (not to mention getting a fab PB for her ToF!)
Carrying on the Dragon tradition, Liv also had a knock out start to the year in League 2, qualifying in 2nd place and then taking home the gold! Knowing she had secured her place at Finals, and with a plethora of new moves under her belt, she then decided to take on League 1 in Nottingham! Although somewhat daunting, with a morning full of more double somersaults than you could count, she pulled both routines out of the bag, making it to finals and finishing in 8th!
Well done girls, we are very proud and can’t wait to see you all at National Finals

Back in December, we held our annual club competition and awards! It was so wonderful to be able to gather members from both of our training venues together, and see what fabulous things everyone has been working on in their sessions. The supportive atmosphere made for a fantastic day, and members of all ages and levels showed off the fantastic routines they have been practicing at training. Check out some photos from the day, taken by Jemma from JLW Photography.
