We were also very lucky to have guest presenter Brooke Kneebush from Gymnastics Australia teaching all about TeamGym
and Inclusion.

A special thank you to the Manukau Counties Community Facilities Trust, GymStuff, Direct Sports and Waitoa Free Range Chicken for their support of the event and spot prizes. We are currently formalising feedback from the event, and we are excited to say that we are looking at running the event again in 2018.
