New Gear in Action at Upcoming Sanctioned Competitions

Rimutaka GymSports – this August sanctioned competition will have a new lease of life with the use of a recently purchased new sprung floor and new Gymnova bars which will be in use at their event.

Palmerston North Opens will also see some new Gymnova bars in use and Levin’s toppers being used for the floor.

Which competitions is the Central Relationship Manager attending in 2017?

Over the past 3 years the Central Relationship Manager has identified 4 competitions per year to attend. This is to ensure that all Clubs get an event visit during competition season. This year’s competitions have been picked to ensure there are two regional artistic events and two from the GFA/Team Gym calendar.

Please note for Wellington Junior and Opens competitions. The Relationship Manager will select sessions to attend that are concurrent and have the largest numbers of clubs involved in order to ensure that she is available to as many Clubs as possible.

  • Wellington Junior – Kapiti GymSports – 1 – 2 July
  • Wellington Opens – Capital GymSports – 22 – 23 July
  • Rimutaka GFA and TeamGym Competition – 17 September
