The first National League qualifier took place over the weekend of 23 and 24 March and four gymnasts from our Elite Squad competed.

Elise was first up with an early start on Saturday morning in the League 3 Female 16+ category. She executed two excellent routines, achieving an overall score of 81.89 and securing 3rd place and 60 league points, along with a place in the zero final. Elise performed a tidy routine in the final, receiving a score of 43.42 and 4th place, missing out on the bronze by less than half a point.

Joella and Katarina were next up, competing in the League 3 Female 17-18 category. This was a huge category of 59 competitors spanning 4 flights!  Katarina took to the trampoline first, jumping confidently and high, despite a slight wobble in her voluntary routine she achieved a score of 82.28 which earned her 40 league points. Her 5th place giving her the opportunity to jump again later in the day in the zero final.

Joella followed shortly afterwards. She narrowly avoided landing on the springs in her first routine, but maintained her poise to perform and very tidy voluntary routine, attracting an excellent HD score. She achieved an overall score of 76.71 and 36th place,  just missing out on league points.

After a lengthy break, Katarina was recalled to the trampoline for her zero final. She jumped 2nd out of 8, digging deep she pulled out an outstanding routine, earning her a PB score of 44.23, which, after nervous wait, was enough for the bronze medal.

Alice, moving up to the League 2 for this season had to wait until Sunday for her competition. The League 2 Female 19+ is a highly competitive category of 39 gymnasts. Alice performed her two new routines with her usual neatness, attracting an overall score of 82.55 which put her in 7th place, earning 32 league points and a place in the zero final. An uncharacteristic off balance take off saw her land on the mid mat on move 5, ending her routine early. She finally ended up in 7th place.

event at which the top two gymnasts from each regional level and category compete against
fellow competitors from all ten regions of the United Kingdom. In addition to individual
medals, scores achieved by the top 8 gymnasts count towards a team trophy in each discipline
(Trampoline, Double-Mini Trampoline and Tumbling). Also in the Regional 1 Women’s 13-
17 category, Scarlett Beck claimed the bronze medal with a total score of 78.25 in a field of
25 competitors. Scarlett is first reserve for the IRCCF event. Competing in the Regional 4

and is also first reserve for the IRCCF.
This competition also included an Open synchronised trampoline competition. This event
involves two gymnasts competing the same exercise at the same time on trampolines that are
side-by-side and aiming to stay as synchronised as possible. A synchronisation score is added
to the standard execution and horizontal displacement scores. Alice Chatters and Katarina
Jones competed in the 15+ category and their score of 54.73 put them in 14 th place. This was
a practice run before they compete on the national stage at the Trampoline and DMT League
event in Cardiff in early June.
