Bishopbriggs Aco Gymnastics March Newsletter

We’re currently having a very busy time in the gym! Competitions in both Acro and Tumble with lots of training in between.  Our Recreational classes are now full and new gymnasts are already progressing well.  We’re looking to change our class structure so that we can improve our sessions and are hoping to implement this after the Easter break!



Due to the continued generosity of our parents/carers and excellent fundraising team we were able to purchase a new airtrack.  The air track is 18m long and we also purchased a run up.  This will allow gymnasts to practice full runs.  The air track is good as it reduces impact and therefore injury is reduced.  We are sure this will only enhance our tumble section of the club and enable more gymnasts to become competitive.

As always we’re running more fundraising activities to raise money to improve the club.  All money raised is always for our gymnasts! Thank you once again for all your support.

Club Tracksuits

We’re looking to change our club tracksuit to a new brand.  We’re hoping this change will be happening very soon! As soon as we have more information we will let you know and provide details of how to order.  Any current orders will be in hold with PSL until further notice.  Thank you!


Club Leotards

We have new club leotards for both our Recreational and Competitive gymnasts.   After the summer it will be compulsory that all competitive Tumble gymnasts wear the club leotard for competitions.  Acro gymnasts will be able to purchase the club leotard or a matching leotard with their partner(s).  We would recommend that lower level gymnasts wear the club leotards as partnerships may change more frequently.

Thank you

Thank you again to all parents/carers for your continued support.
