We were very proud of all our hard working gymnasts at the Acro Scottish Championships, everyone tried their very best. it was superb to see our 11-16 Womens Pairs doing so well and taking all the podium places. Well done girls!
We had three partnerships involved in the second day of the 2015 Acro Scottish Championship. It was a very well done to Zoe, Nicole and Megan who took Silver in the 12-18 Womens Group category and to Sarah and Emma who are the new Scottish Champions in the 12-18 Womens Pairs category. Alex and Emma gave a great performance coming in 6th in a huge group of 30 partnerships taking part in the Grade 3 Womens Pairs category.
The club is proud of every single gymnast that took part in this weekends competition.

The Artistic World championships took place in Glasgow in October 2015. The EKGC Acro section was among the clubs that were invited to take part in the pre-Show warmups, Our partnersships did themselves and the club proud by performing before up to 7000 people who were all amazed at our fantastic gymnasts. Well done folks!
We have had an exciting month this month.
Last weekend we attended the Scottish championships and came home with 4 Scottish champions which means they all will be competing in the British championships in May. Plus an additional 1 gold , 4 silver and 4 bronze. We also came home with NDP team bronze. It was a great competition and all gymnasts did the club proud. This is a vast improvement from last years Competition where we came home with 1 Scottish champion at NDP level.
We also have had 6 partnerships selected for the Celtic cup Scotland team. This is a great achievement - all gymnasts have worked so hard and earned their spot.
Overall a great month and looking forward to next month.
