A new competition season starts for Fenland Flyers Trampoline and DMT Club.
This season the competitors only have two competition to score enough marks to be able to compete in the Regional Team Qualifier in March 2020.
The first competition qualifier took place at the weekend in Harlow, Fenland Flyers took 26 gymnasts, to which 16 of those children also competed in the Double Mini Trampoline (DMT) competition.
Our stars of the day were our three competitors with additional needs.
Nine-year-old Jayden Smith, who trampolines with two prosthetic legs, was first to compete along with Kieran Prpa and Fabienne Clement-Degrieck.

Our club level performers were next to compete with Harley Calton and Daisy Hackett competing for the first time.

Both were extremely nervous, but with the support of their team mates Harley was placed second in his group and Daisy achieved fourth.
For our national development competitors were all trying out new routines as they have moved up one or even two levels from last season.
This was a tough competition and the nerves got the better of some of the competitors.
On this occasion it was the younger competitors that coped with the pressure, with Bailey Hanrahan taking bronze in the nine to 10-year-olds, Kate Pattingale and Reilly Anderson took silver in the 11 to 12-year-olds.
Seventeen out of the 26 competitors achieved the required score to compete in March - an excellent start to the season.
The DMT competition, the gymnasts had a much better competition with 11 out of the 16 taking one of the top three positions.
The 11 medal winners also scored enough marks to be put forward in competition in March.
This is an amazing result as this is only the third competition at DMT most of these gymnasts have had.
In this competition 11 out of the 16 have achieved the required score to compete in March.
Fenland Flyers is offering an introductory offer for new members.
