The trophy rewards effort in improving flexibility, strength, attitude and performance in gymnastics.

 Head Coach Plamen has this to say – “Katie thoroughly deserves this award because of her overall performance in class and her attitude has always been very good.”

In both the Elite Class and her Advanced Gymnastics class at Oakwood Sports Centre, Katie works hard individually to improve her own ability level and her self-motivation is evident to other members of the Elite gymnastics class. Fellow Head Coach Georgie had this to say of Kate – ” She always has been great and has sustained her extremely high level of performance and dedication for the last year.”

Even though a quiet member of our classes , Katie clearly enjoys her gymnastics and this a good reason why she continues to just get better and better! She puts 100% into every aspect of her training and the results speak for themselves.

This special class is not advertised by Springfit but provides further hours of training to members through a personal invitation by the Head Coach of the several advanced classes at the club as a means to provide further training in the more difficult skills children can learn.

Everyone at Springfit would like to CONGRATULATE Katie again – keep up the good work!

Abbie was pleasantly surprised but happy as she has been working hard in her Thursday and Saturday classes in Horley, showing a determined attitude towards her training that has seen her achieve many new skills as well continuing to improve her existing ones. Her coaches still believe her to be “a fantastic role model for all gymnasts in her determination and enjoyment of the sport” as she was  4 years ago when Abbie was awarded the coveted “Fay Greene Award for Progress in Gymnastics”. That award also came as a pleasant surprise to Abbie who has been with the club since December 2010 and had no gymnastics background before then. She had progressed from an improvers class to advanced quickly and was then invited into Springfit’s “Elite squad” at their Oakwood Sports Centre training venue within a year of joining us.
