The video below was produced by BG to showcase DMT in their Discover Gymnastics series – all the gymnasts in it are from Eastern Region with the exception of one, the video was taken at Sprung Loaded.
The date and venue for this has now been set and all clubs are invited to prepare for the competition which is being hosted by Levitation TC:
As in previous years there will be both team and individual champions and clubs may enter more than one team if they would like. One big change this year is brought upon us because of the two different structures in use and in order to allow all to compete on a ‘level-playing field’ the competition will make use of the East Region’s Open Competition Structure. This structure has been designed to give clubs confidence in using either NDP or Eastern Grades (or both in reflection of individuals’ needs) as their preferred development pathway going forward. This new format structure was trialled at the recent Fenland Flyers Open where both the organizers and those attending thought it worked well with only minor wrinkles (now being in the process of being ironed out).
As with last year the competition will be for:
If anybody has a query about the New Open Structure please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Annual General Meeting will immediately follow the East Region Championship competition. Can all clubs please make an effort to attend.
The following update has been received from the League:
Please find a link below to the 2015 updated Tracks 2000 League Handbook.
A ‘changes sheet’ is also attached highlighting the major changes we have made in 2015. These changes have been made in order to improve the League provision and are based on the feedback you gave us. Please find a link below to this sheet.
Please also find a link to the team results from the 2014 League Finals. 40 clubs fielded teams in the Finals creating a well contested event. A further 35 clubs took part. We are very proud to have generated such a great team event in our inaugural year.
Please forward the handbook to any clubs you may think would be interested in entering in 2015. Our calendar ensures League activity as early as May this year in order to give essential additional experience to those entering the NDP Spring Series events and to provide a longer season which we believe will assist you with your planning.
We hope you like our 2015 provision and continue to support the League which we hope will provide another great trampolining experience in developmental and ability based competition.
The online entry will be open from March and the closing date for the first League event is April 11th.
We look forward to seeing you on May 2nd/3rd in Burgess Hill.
Thanks to all for your support,
League Facilitation Team

As a result of low numbers of applications, due to a clash of dates with other events, the proposed DMT squad session on Sunday 18th May will not go ahead.
Phil Dodson, Regional DMT Squad Coordinator, extends an open invitation for coaches to bring performers to his club sessions on a Saturday evening (5:15 – 7:30) at Hitchin Boys School Sports Centre.
Please contact Phil at to arrange.
Georgia, coached by Phil Dodson, who was also recently appointed as the region’s DMT squad coach, qualified through to the final in only the 7th slot after hitting the bungee on her second pass. However her first pass score and her contribution to the British Team’s bronze medal suggested better things to come.. In the final she produce two excellent passes to total a world class 67.500 points, narrowly missing out on gold to Russia’s Polina Troianova.
Congratulations to Georgia and Phil.
