Springers Gymnastics Club has had many accomplishments over the last two seasons, including 2018 Provincial Champion in the Junior Olympic (JO) Level 4 category, Danielle Ronn. However, this year we have an athlete who competed at Western Trials in Regina this past weekend for a spot on the team that attends Western Canadian Championships. Danica Signarowski has earned herself a spot on Team Sask as a JO Level 8 athlete competing at Westerns, which will be held in Saskatoon on April 25-27, 2019. The last athlete from Springers who was a member of Team Sask that attended Westerns was in 2001. These are exciting times for our little club and we are so proud of our athletes!
As our competitive program continues to grow and develop, we have become strong competitors in the province, including amongst other athletes in big city clubs, such as Regina and Saskatoon. Our club has 29 competitive athletes and 20 pre-competitive athletes, which is relatively small in comparison. Our competitive season began on the weekend of February 8-10, 2019, where we competed at the Marian Classic in Saskatoon. Springers athletes have competed in various competitions to date, including Taiso in Saskatoon, Humboldt, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw. Springers Gymnastics Club will be host to 510 athletes, 330 competitive and 180 recreational, on April 5-7, 2019. We will be running our annual Invitational, which is our major fundraiser for our non-profit organization, at the Yorkton Regional High School. Athletes who are attending come from all across Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
