NDP Training Time Change – Friday 17th Jan 2020

Please note that NDP Acro training tonight (Friday 17th Jan) will take place at the earlier time of 17:00 – 20:00. This is to give the gymnasts competing tomorrow the chance to get home and get some rest before tomorrows early start!

There will also be no training on Sunday due to the competition.

Good luck to the gymnasts competing in the Acrobatic Invitational this weekend!

Coaching Update

As many of you will know, there have been a number of coaching changes within the club recently.

Coaches Moving On

Janice is moving on from Kingston Gymnastics to take on a Sports Coaching position with Celtic F.C. We wish Janice all the best in her new position.

Millie is also heading off in a new Nursing career. We wish her luck with her new job, but hope to still see her around the club from time to time.

Andy has also stepped down as head coach of NDP, and has gone on to join the team over at Hamilton Gymnastics Club.

Coaches Moving Up

We are delighted to announce that Sophie Mulholland will be taking on a full time role with the club. As of November 4th, Sophie will be taking over as head coach of Acro NDP and we are as excited as she is about the plans going to be put in place.

Sophie will be assisted by Colin, who will take more responsibility for NDP along with his other duties as Head Coach. The club will also be supporting Sophie as she goes for her Level 2 Coaching Certificate.

Coaches Moving In

The club is also still advertising for additional coaches to join the team. If you or anyone you know is interested, please get in touch via email to info@kingstongymnastics.org

Coach Hierarchy

We are hoping to have short biographies of all our coaches soon so we can let you all know a little more about them. Check our Coaches page in the future for updates!

Scottish NDP Championships 2019

Another great competition weekend was had over at the Ravenscraig Regional Sports facility for the 2019 Scottish NDP Championships. A number of our gymnasts were competing over the two days.

Below are a selection of photographs from the weekend. Well done to all our gymnasts for their excellent performances. They all worked hard and we are looking forward to a new season.

Thanks to PSB photography for the use of some of these photos. If you want to order prints from the weekend, you can do so over at https://www.psb.photo/
