The third week of January saw athletes from around the North Island converge on Tri Star Gymnastics for their annual Summer Camps. Not only another huge success with both seniors and juniors, but also the coaches who were able to put fresh learnings from the previous week’s FIG Academy and GymSchool straight into practice.
The change over from Senior camp to Junior camp allowed some younger athletes to meet their idols – the Fantastic Gymnastics girls from Parua Bay (Whangarei Heads) were super happy to meet Christchurch senior Mackenzie Slee and get a photo with her. Olympian Dylan Schmidt spoke motivationally to both camps about his road to the Rio 2016 Olympics. As well as hearing his story, athletes asked him questions and got photos and autographs with him.
Tri Star then went on to host the MAG Squad 360 camp which you will hear all about in our February news.
