Federica Steps Up for Stepping Stones
Congratulations to two of our members who both came away as winners at Trampoline competitions held on Sunday 29th November.
Federica, along with her family and coach Clare, made the journey up to Gillingham to compete in the Southern Regional round of the British Schools Trampoline Championships. Federica was competing for Stepping Stones School and did a great job of representing them as she performed in the Under 19s Disability Novice category. Despite a couple of extra jumps, she completed all of her skills and came away with the gold medal as well as qualifying through to take part in the Zonal round in January.
At the same time as this, Ben was taking part in the “I’m In” Gymnastics event at Basingstoke Gymnastics Club. The event was aimed at gymnasts who were new to disability competitions and for Ben this was his first ever competition on the Trampoline. Supported by coaches Andy and Lee, Ben gave a terrific performance and came away with a gold medal for his efforts, which he proudly got to show off at training later that evening!
Two wonderful results – well done to both Federica and Ben!
