Wohoo for sunshine! ☀️☀️☀️ please send your bouncing gymnasts along with a full water bottle as it gets very hot in the hall! Sophie will make sure they have allocated drink slots to stop them over heating 😊🤸🏻‍♀️🤸🏾‍♂️

#TipTuesday quick tip on hand positioning in cartwheels. There are zillions of ways of doing cartwheels! But we like to teach one main way with the second hand turned in, as it helps us learn other related skills - like cartwheels on the beam and round offs.

TIPTUESDAY bridge kick overs this week! We're looking at the angle our shoulders need to be to kick over successfully.

Our gymnasts did such an amazing job today! Everyone tried and developed a handstand, jumped ON a beam, walkovers began and more! Sophie is one proud coach today! #GoTeamCrawley
