Jumping for Joy!

5th March 2014

Following their success in the Doncaster Schools’ Trampolining Competition where they qualified for the South Yorkshire Finals the De Warenne trampolining teams committed themselves to intensive training and preparation.

In January they went to Sheffield to compete in the finals and, with Balby Carr School, were the Doncaster representatives.TV fame accompanied the team as the event was covered by BBC Look North. They also appeared in the Sheffield Star newspaper.

In addition to the competition element there was also the opportunity to meet members of the Great Britain Trampolining squad. They saw two trampolinists (each ranked number one in the world in their age category) demonstrate their skills in their specialist areas; one who competes in the synchronized event and the other who is the first female trampolinist to do four summersaults in one bounce.

The team thoroughly enjoyed what is undoubtedly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and came away inspired to develop their skills further and achieve their goals.
