National Clubs Wrap Up

The 2016 National Clubs Carnival was held again in Bendigo Victoria, a favourite event for Kachan School of Tumbling & Performance.  This year we had 21 athletes represent our club, the combined effort from each and every one saw us with our strongest club results to date.

Our young but mighty team were announced as the:

  • Champion Club in Levels 6 and 7,
  • Champion Tumbling Club (for the 2nd year in a row),
  • 3rd Overall Club in DMT and
  • 2nd Overall Club for trampoline gymnastics.

To top it off our very own Justin Fokes was awarded the Champion all round athlete for 2016, acknowledging his strong performances across all disciplines being 1st in trampoline and dmt and 3rd in tumbling.

All in all it was an amazing weekend filled with fun, great team support, personal bests and new records.  Thank you to all the parents and siblings for being the best cheer squad ever, to our coaches, judges and volunteers for your dedication and tireless work and to Gymnastics Australia for putting on yet another successful National Clubs Carnival. Well done to all our athletes, we are so proud of you all and happy for your personal achievements. We love Bendigo and are already looking forward to next year!

Day 1 Wrap Up

What an action packed first day at National clubs in Bendigo! A huge congratulations to Molly Mamo and Henry Clark who are the National level 7 tumbling champions. Well done also to Damon Louwen who came 3rd in level 7 tumbling. Two from two tumbling events on day 1 is not too bad! A special mention to our level 4 dmt athletes, many of them first timers at National Clubs who competed so well in an event with over 100 competitors.  Session 2 and 3 saw our elite athletes vying for a spot on the National Team.  With solid performances KSTP have many athletes who performed qualifying routines and not just in tumbling, we had some solid routines in trampoline and dmt, a testament that KSTP is becoming competitive in not just tumbling.  The National Squad will be announced in due course, we wish our athletes well.
