On Saturday 7th November, Springfit held their latest Trampolining Competition at Moor House School in Oxted.
We had an incredible response to the Invitational and members from several local clubs joined together with the Springfit trampolinists to show off their amazing skills. Even though there were over sixty participants, the friendly and caring atmosphere that Springfit aim to create at all their competitions made sure that they all felt comfortable and welcome and definitely will have calmed any nerves.
Friends and family were out in force to support their children and they are treated to a great view of the competition from the balcony. Looking up for approval from our judges were a wide range of competitors, from six-year olds all the way up to the teenagers from the more advanced classes.
The quality of the performances wowed the judges and it was apparent that the trampolinists from all Clubs are improving with each event. A special mention goes to Abigail Field , who trains with us at our Oakwood location, was awarded the Marie Manhire-Clark trophy for effort, this was her sixth competition and she shows such enthusiasm in her performances and we believed she will continue to get better and better!
There was an almost clean sweep for Anti-Gravity in first half, doing Marie proud as well as new manager; Emily. We would like to congratulate them on such a fine display of trampolining.
In 7 years & under Level I category Lily Murphy (Oakwood, Springfit) and Phoenix Hogan (Oriel, Springfit) took 1st and 2nd place respectively. This was a great performance especially for Phoenix who has improved immensely since previous competitions and deserved her first ever competition medal. Phoenix and Abigail are both trained by Sharley, one of our Head Trampolining Coaches and she is obviously doing a fine job nurturing their talents and helping them build their confidence.
Head Judge Adam Reynolds also commented on how impressed he was with the quality of all the performances and also the support shown to all the trampolinists : “To have so many instructors and staff from all these clubs come along to show support for children who are clearly passionate about trampolining is great. It’s clear that the efforts are appreciated by performers and parents, and this makes it always worthwhile.”
Huge congratulations must go to each and every competitor who displayed determination on the apparatus, and enjoyed the event showing great sportsmanship which helped to create such a fun and friendly atmosphere.
