We have received district trial competition dates for artistic and rhythmic gymnastics and have thus updated the competition tab (https://vdstelgim.wordpress.com/2019-calendar/) on our website.
We will post the formal calender once WCGA makes it available. At the moment only Western Cape Championship, South Zone and SA Gym Games info is available on their website: http://www.westerncapegymnastics.com/2019-western-cape-competition-calendar.html
Our first competition of the season is the Medal mania at the Wynland club in the Paarl on the 6th April. We can almost see this as a wakeup call. Those that competed last year will know it is a fun competition. So below you will see the names of the gymnasts we think are ready for the competition scene, but it is still your choice. If I do not receive your money then I will accept that you are not interested and that is fine with us.
I do not have dates for the district trials yet, but it will be in May
We will be having holiday training as follows, I do not teach for less than 5 gymnasts.
Monday 25 March 08.00 – 10.00 for level 2
Tuesday 26 March 08.00 – 10.00 for level 3
Wednesday 27 March 08.00 – 10.00 for level 4 and up
Monday 1 April 08.00 – 10.00 for level 2 and 3 doing the Medal Mania
Medal Mania 06 April 2016: Entry is R150. Please I must enter and pay on the 18th of March. If I have not received the monies then I accept you do not want to attend. They do not accept late entries

During the March holidays the pits in the gymnastics hall will be replaced.
While the pits are being replaced we would like to move, clean and fix the mattresses along with a lot of other general maintenance stuff such as painting apparatus. If there are any parents that could help with this this Friday (15 March) from 14:00 to 17:00 or Saturday (16 March) from 8:00 to 12:00 please contact Gerhard at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Taylor from Topsy Turvy will be at Van Der Stel on Wednesday, 20 February, from 15:00 to fit artistic club leotards.
All gymnasts planning to compete in any competition (other than club competitions) should please fit and order a leotard. Although we would love all our gymnasts to have a club leotard it is optional for gymnasts not competing in competitions other than our club competitions.
If you order a leotard please keep a look out for the e-mail to confirm your order from email@example.com.
The 2019 Competitions Calendar for Western Cape Championships for all levels can be downloaded here: calender 2019
Kindly note that Gym Games will be in the Western Cape and venues are as indicated on the calendar.
South Zone has been moved from Northern Cape to Eastern Cape. Eastern Cape will advise dates and venues in due course.
We will update the Calender tab on the website once district trial dates have been confirmed.
Due to maintenance to the water pipes at Van Der Stel there will be no water on the premises on Monday. Please ensure that you send extra water with your child(ren) to training as they will not be able to top-up their water bottles from the tap.
Rolling improves body awareness and control by teaching children how to use both sides of their body equally to complete a task AND teaches them how to feel comfortable upside down, which improves their spatial awareness!
This is one of the first skills we teach in our gymnastics classes, helping children grow in confidence and strength!
