Very important Email 16th May
The secretary will be sending over a very important email on entries for the 9th & 10th July competitions. This will need attention from any club entering gymnasts for the FIG, Gold, Silver, Bronze Teams and Challenge Trophy & Qualifier.
Please read it carefully and if you don’t receive it please contact the Secretary.
The email received list will be updated when it is sent out
We are looking forward to seeing everyone again at Catterick this weekend.
Just a practical reminder to coaches to always have a back up copy of their gymnast’s music and to check the music on arrival , that way we can make sure that every gymnast is able to get performing on floor as swiftly as possible to keep those pesky nerves at bay.
We wish all the gymnasts the best of luck.
Please find below some points which have arisen from the previous competitions, we would kindly ask that you would send out these reminders to coaches and parents.
Please remember that everyone at the competitions has volunteered their time to help the competition run smoothly and should be spoken to with respect including those manning the door.
In exceptional circumstances, we may not be able to accept card payments on the door and would therefore only be able to accept cash for spectator entry.
If you are buying a club leotard for your child to wear at the competition, please check the sizing is correct.
Remember that event tee shirt sales are online and should be purchased in advance and collected at the competition.
When leotards are purchased or borrowed for competitions, please check that the sizing is correct to ensure that they are not big and baggy around certain parts of the body.
Please ensure parents are aware of the new purchasing options for event tee shirts so no one is disappointed on the day.
A brief reminder of what is acceptable coaching attire at competitions, please refer to the handbook for a more in-depth guidance. (Page 25)
· Full length tracksuit bottoms or full-length leggings (plain and none see through)
· A collared polo shirt or t-shirt, a tracksuit top but not a hoodie and appropriate gym training shoes.
Please ensure all artistry gestures in floor routines are age appropriate and respectful.
Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and we look forward to seeing you all at future competitions.

Launch of the Yorkshire WA Pewter Programme 2022
Yorkshire WA Gymnastics are please to include on the calendar this year their much anticipated Pewter programme.
Specifically and carefully designed using the huge WA experience, not just on the WTC committee but within the wider Yorkshire WA community, to give gymnasts logical, safe and appropriate steps forward on bringing together the 4 pieces of WA gymnastics.
Using this experience Yorkshire WA have built a criteria that works for the gymnasts and gives a rewarding level in itself, whilst also a natural progression towards the WA Classic Challenge.
Pewter participation allows younger gymnasts and those new to the 4 pieces of WA a chance to experience performing in a friendly participation event.
The Pewter competition is the perfect competition for gymnasts to make that first step into 4 piece gymnastics competitions or to consolidate the progress they have been doing.
As a natural complement to the BG WA Classic Challenge both Pewter criteria provide lots of choices of moves to allow gymnasts to work to their strengths, whilst balancing this with the appropriate and safe moves for this level and for each individual gymnast.
The full criteria can be found in our new 2022 handbook here and the dates are on our event calendar here and here.
