Gymtastic news for clubs in Cornwall!
It was announced by British Gymnastics this week that gymnastics club, Zero Gravity Academy in Saltash, has gained GymMark status. It's the final club to gain this award which means every club in Cornwall is now GymMark certified. This is a first for the UK and British Gymnastics as no other county can claim such an accolade.
The GymMark Scheme has been developed by British Gymnastics (BG), in partnership with Sport England and the Home Country Sports Councils. Its purpose is to provide recognition for clubs that are committed to providing quality experiences; encouraging young people to take up sport, whilst focusing on improving their talent and maintaining a lifelong participation in sport. GymMark has helped clubs to grow and develop, improving membership numbers and levels of performance.
Area Manager, Katie Irwin, from British Gymnastics said: "It's a great achievement to have all British Gymnastics clubs across Cornwall achieving GymMark, this is the British Gymnastics stamp showing clubs are providing a service in the community that children and young people, their parents/carers and others with a passion for Gymnastics can trust. It's great to see Cornish clubs continuing to work hard for their gymnasts and the community"
Zero Gravity Academy's High Performance Coach, Dom Elsom said: "We're really pleased to achieve this position and be recognised for the hard work put in to the club. It's great for our parents and participants especially for new members to the club who can now be reassured that our standards, efficiency and child friendly environment are endorsed by British Gymnastics."
Cornwall Sports Partnership would like to thank all their club members, volunteers and supporters for their hard work in making this happen.
