Bishopbriggs Aco Gymnastics June 2018 Newsletter

As always our gymnasts are busy and working hard! We’ve had some big changes recently – now our tumble and acrobatic sessions are completely separate.  We’re looking forward to seeing gymnasts continue to progress in both disciplines.


Our tumble track is now being used at our Meadowburn tumble sessions.  Once again, thank you to everyone who contributed to helping us reach our target.

We are looking to fundraise for new crash mats and a trampette to improve our tumble classes further.  This will cost in total roughly £2000.00!

We will keep you up to date with fundraising activities after the holidays to help us reach our new target.  Any ideas would be welcomed!

Cancelled Dates for your Diary

Please see below list of upcoming cancelled sessions.  If any other dates are cancelled we will add this to the ‘Dates for your Diary’ section of the website and post on Facebook.

Friday 15th June @ Kelvinhall

Saturday 16th June @ Dynamite Gymnastics Club

Coaching Update

Holly Kelly is attending her UKCC L1 Acro course during the summer.

Holly Mardle is attending her UKCC L2 Acro course later on in the year.

Hopefully we will have other coaches gaining new qualifications too!

Club Updates

Please remember that club updates will be mainly made via Facebook and the club website.  With over 150 members we struggle to have letters for every update.  You can follow the website and all posts will then be emailed directly to you!

Upcoming Competitions 2018

Please add the below dates to your diaries for our competitive gymnasts.

15th – 17th June – Tumble Regional Team Finals

6th – 8th July – Tumble NDP Finals

26th – 27th August – Tumble Scottish Championships Qualifier

16th September – Scottish Acro Tournament

Any additional competition dates will be added to the ‘Dates for your Diary’ section of our website.

If any of our competitive gymnasts are unavailable on any dates below please advise a coach ASAP.

Club Tracksuits

We now have our new Nike club tracksuits.  These are available from the PSL website.  If unsure of sizing coaches will be able to assist.

From August ALL competitive gymnasts will require the club tracksuit for competitions.  Thank you!

Club Leotards

From August 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.  These can be ordered directly from the club.

Fun Day

On Saturday 23rd June we will be having a fun day at our Meadowburn Training Session.  This will be 09:00 – 11:30 and all gymnasts will be welcome to attend.  If gymnasts don’t normally attend this session we would ask for a donation of £3.00 per gymnast to add to our fundraising pot.  Please wear normal gymnastics attire as we will have gymnastics activities.

Summer Programme

After our fun day we will be moving to our summer training programme.  If you don’t have a copy of this please ask a coach at any session.  Please remember that standing orders must remain in place or gymnasts will not be permitted to return to training in August.  Thank you!


If you have any questions please feel free to contact the club via email or speak to a coach at the beginning of any training session.  Unfortunately coaches cannot respond to any correspondence directly outwith coaching hours and will not provide personal contact numbers.  Thank you!

Thank you

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

Lunar Invitational Acro Competition

Lunar Invitational Acro Competition

Date: Sunday 20th May 2018


Please ensure that gymnasts arrive on time for general warm up – listed below.  Gymnasts should have club tracksuit and competition leotard with them – if gymnasts are unsure what leotard this is please speak to a coach at training and they can confirm.  Gymnasts will be marching in wearing new competition tracksuits or leotards if they don’t have the new tracksuit.  Please ensure gymnasts arrive with hair tied up neatly.

We have several gymnasts competing for the first time so please ensure you read the below:

  • No nail polish
  • No underwear under leotards that would be visible
  • If wearing a scrunchie in hair this must be secure

Deductions will be given for all of the above so these are particularly important!

Gymnasts will have a general warm up followed by a competition floor warm up and will then compete.  After gymnasts have competed they are able to sit with parents/carers however, we would ask that gymnasts remain with coaches prior to competing.  Parents/Carers are not permitted in the warm up area and should not approach anyone running the competition regarding scores etc.  Any queries should be made through a Bishopbriggs Acro coach.  Thank you!
