gymnastics in Ireland

I visited 5 clubs in the Republic of Ireland last week, a good will ambassador for TumblTrak. Gymnastics Sports are surprisingly undeveloped there, but progressing RAPIDLY.

First, we dropped in on a pre-competitive training camp for the girls National Irish Super Squad for children under age-10. That was hosted at Excel Gymnastics near Dublin.

It was terrific to visit my friends at Renmore Gymnastics, Ireland. Here’s Recreation Director Samantha Marciano, originally from New York.

Trojan Gymnastics has long been one of the strongest competitive clubs in the country. I was impressed by how much they could accomplish in a very small space.

Here’s Janz Gymnastics near Dublin, the newest facility of the clubs I saw. Big and spacious.

Finally, Sugarloaf Gymnastics.

Looks bright, clean and spacious too. Right?

That’s because it’s housed in Greystones Community Centre. Kids and coaches set-up and take down all that equipment 3 times / week. That’s dedication.

Thanks to all those clubs and coaches for inviting me in. 🙂
