January saw our gymnastics ninjas, kick start their year at our Ninja Warrior Holiday Clinic!
Open to current Delta gymnasts and school-age kids ready to try something new, our exciting, all-new Ninja Warrior course was tried and tested by our coaches (we think they enjoyed the challenge!), ready for our Gym kids to take on 3 days of fun, fitness and friendship!
Children raced through the Ninja Warrior obstacles – up and over cargo nets and ladders, swung across ropes and bars, bounced across the quintuple steps (spring boards), over trampolines and mats and through the foam pit – testing their agility every step of the way! The enormous mat mountain was the last challenge of the course and children were met with cheers from their coaches and teammates on making it over the wall! What a great, fun way to build strength and agility in our kids!
Alongside the Ninja Warrior circuit, our budding gymnasts got back into the swing of things on the other gymnastics apparatus. On our bars rotation we made great use of all that holiday energy – swinging and circling, hanging and monkeying, all the while perfecting correct gymnastics technique. Demonstrating great focus and attention on beam, we practised balance and coordination, controlling our bodies in each and every step. We also had a blast on floor where we jumped, hopped, rolled and cartwheeled across the gym, further fine-tuning our gymnastics skills!
It was great to see so many smiling faces in the gym prior to official classes starting back for 2018. What a great way to finish up school holidays and jump back into gymnastics for the year!
We certainly had some fierce competitors and saw some great times on our Gymnastics Ninja Course! We will be keeping an eye out for some future Delta contestants on Ninja Warrior Australia that’s for sure!
Our next holiday clinic will run in April – stay tuned for what exciting theme this holiday clinic will bring!
