Telford’s International Centre hosted the 2017 NDP Finals in early July and gymnasts from our region came home with no fewer than 27 medals. This was a tremendous haul from the 40 East competitors with Pegasus Trampoline Club and Brentwood Trampoline Club both coming away with 5 medals. Congratulations too to Flight TC who had two gold medalists and to Cambridge Cangaroos, HBS, Colchester Gym Club and Storm Elite who each had two medalists.
Pegasus was dominant among the region’s DMT entries. Lucy Bevan won gold and Edward Parkin and Max Gaeta both received silvers. Chloe Caley was jumping in both disciplines and won bronze medals in both. Dominic Gray from Cambourne Comets was the fifth DMT gymnast from the region to climb the podium, in his case for a bronze. Well done all.
22 medalists underlined the strength of the region’s footprint at all levels bar elite.
There were golds for Ciara Verdicchio, Noah Collins, Tabitha Howard, Shannon Waterman and Sydney Kelly, the last two posting some excellent execution scores. 10 year old Lilia Kearney, jumping at the competition’s highest level, was another noteworthy winner.
Silver medals went to Jared Smith, Chantelle Watts, Francis Owen, Daniel Surridge, Ashleigh Doyle, Naomi Waldock, Adam Dobbins, Emma Savill, Harvey Bell and Elliott Innocent with bronzes to Matthew Burson, Emma Ellis, Heather Cannon, Stanley Deacon, Chloe Caley and Thomas Gregory.
There were disappointments and mishaps of course as well as pleasant surprises. The region’s total might have been higher still if a couple of favourites had been able to compete; inevitably injury and incorrect routines also cost a medal or two. But that’s sport and it all adds to the drama and excitement. Good to see that fully a half of all the medals were at levels 6 and above; perhaps a few may now push on to success within the elite ranks next year.
Congratulations to all our competitors; you did yourselves and us proud.
Team East’s trampoline and DMT gymnasts punched above their weight once more, winning 24 medals at 2017’s Regional Team Finals held last weekend at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena.

On trampoline there were 18 medals spread across Continue reading

Congratulations to the Trampoline-East team on the successes at the NDP Team Finals. Great credit goes to all coaches and gymnasts involved in the event and we hope these results will act as a stimulus for further progress. Meanwhile it is important that, despite the understandable elation, we keep the result in perspective and maintain our focus on ‘the bigger picture’.
It is noticeable that the greatest number of team points accrued as a result of the performance of our younger competitors. This is a strong indication that coaches and younger gymnasts are following the technical approach being promoted at our regional squad sessions. The technical improvement is not restricted to those actually attending squad and it is clear that coaches are applying the principles throughout their clubs. This is a significant development which can have long term benefits for trampolining in the East.
Coaches will be aware that this region was strongly critical of the way the NDP system was suddenly imposed without proper consultation. However, a number of the areas of contention have been addressed and the squad coaches have now accepted that the NDP system is the only realistic route to the top of the sport in GBR. We believe that coaches owe it to all their gymnasts to provide the opportunity to tap into the system at the most appropriate level.
The NDP system is now being supported by the regional pathway sessions which provide coach education opportunities as well as enabling gymnasts to train with other national level performers. The regional squad sessions which we have been staging, slot very nicely into this pathway.
Please be aware that the views expressed in this article are those of the squad coaches and do not necessarily reflect that of the Eastern Region committee.
In summary: let us use the recent ‘small victory’ as a sign that we are doing the right things and start planning for further progress which will inevitably involve increasing training time and opportunities for those who demonstrate the desire and commitment to try and reach their full potential.
The last squad sessions scheduled for 2016 takes place this Sunday at Brentwood from 9am – 3pm – all coaches are welcome to attend whether or not they have performers present.
