2019 National Clubs Carnival
Kachan School of Tumbling & Performance took a team of 33 athletes to the Gold Coast for the National Clubs Carnival, one of our favourite events on the competition calendar. This is a competition for athletes competing level 4 and above and a competition whereby athletes compete individually for their club, earning points based on results.
This year’s competition was also the final qualifier for the World Championships and the World Age Group Competition that will be held in Japan later in the year, with KSTP having 13 athletes vying for a spot on the National team for the World Age competition and 4 for the World Championships, the first time KSTP will have senior athletes on the National Senior Team.
With the combined results from our athletes KSTP walked away with 2nd Overall Club Champions, a massive achievement that we are so proud of. Other club results were;
1st Tumbling discipline champion club
1st Level 7 champion club
2nd Level 6 champion club
3rd DMT discipline champion club
3rd Elite levels champion club
3rd Level 4 champion club
3rd Level 5 champion club
6th Trampoline discipline champion club
We are so impressed with each of the athlete’s performance, the way they represented our club and themselves they should be very proud of themselves. Each athlete showcased what they can do, with many performing their personal best, some overcoming nerves for their first National competition, all athletes are superstars in our eyes.
