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

Anti-Bullying Week 2019 – Change Starts With Us!

Dragons Trampoline Club are supporting Anti-Bullying Week 2019, coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance.

The aim of this week is to work with children in our clubs to understand:

• Bullying is still a serious issue

• We are all responsible

• A small change can make a big difference

• Change starts now

This year we want to focus on positive change, and we know that we are ALL part of the solution.

We are asking that everyone pledge to change something no matter how small and tell us about it! For those of you who want to share your support, Odd Socks Day takes place on Tuesday 12th November - it's as simple as it sounds, all you have to do is wear odd socks to training to spread awareness of the core values Anti-Bullying week promotes!

The Promise outlines all the ways in which parents can be the best sports parents they can be, by ensuring their child has safe and enjoyable experiences of sport.

 

Parents can make the Promise online by 13th October 2019 and, in return, you'll be directed to vital information about how to keep your child safe in sport. You can also download a certificate of your own to share on social media or print out and stick up on the fridge.

 

Show your child you support them taking part in sport by making the Promise at https://thecpsu.org.uk/parentspromise and spread the word using the hashtag #SportsParents and tweet using the handles @TheCPSU, @Dragons_TC and @BritGymnastics. If you are not on Twitter, with your consent, we will be taking photographs of you and your child with your certificate in classes on the 8th, 9th and 10th October.

 

Please sign up to make the Promise today and to talk to your child(ren) about why it is so important to ensure they are kept safe in their sport
