Team Selection 2016-17.
Another great couple of months for Saltire Team Gymnastics Club. We have recently completed our Annual Team Selection process. Well done to everyone who was successful in securing a space in the 2016-17 Squads! We hope you continue to develop your gymnastics and have a productive and successful competition season.
We have recently secured £4750.00 from the Lottery Awards For All fund. We have used the funds to purchase a new Airtrack, blower and transport trolley for Musselburgh Sports Centre. This will be a great asset for the Friday Development group training.
