Athletes who are competing in 2014 need to listen at classes for announcements of competition details and entry closing dates. I will also put competition information on our website www.eastleketrampolinesports.com.au which will mean it will also go on our facebook page Eastlake Trampoline Sports. Tramp competition calendar is on NSW Gym website (under trampoline sports – events)
The state trials will be held at the Rooty Hill venue. Karen Pickering has done some investigating re room prices at the Novotel. Anyone wanting to stay overnight in Rooty Hill. If they ring NOVOTEL ROOTY HILL and tell them they are going to GYM NSW competition the rate is reduced from $203 / night to $191.25 HOWEVER if they go to WOTIF or Lastminute.com they can get same room for $176/night. The motel will not match this price. They tell you to go to wotif and buy it there.
In order to compete in the 2014 NSW State Age and Elite competition athletes must compete in one of the two available State Age & Elite trials. Both the trials are also qualifying competitions for state team.

Jessica Pickering competed in her first world championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. She completed her two routines to gain a placing of 16th out of the field of 49 competitors. Well done Jessica!
A wonderful effort by Ty to complete every routine, compete in semi finals and acheive 16th place in individual trampoline. Well done Ty, and bringing home 3rd place in the men's team event is just terrific!
At the start of the world championships A judge, and athlete and a coach is selected to read their respective oaths. This world championships Brett was selected out of all the national coaches to read the coaches oath. This is a great honour and what is even more special is that Brett has previously been chosen to read the oath when he was a judge at world championships and many years ago as an athlete competing. He is the only person world wide to have read all three different oaths (in fact I don't think anyone else has even read two). An amazing recognition and well deserved
