State Aerobics Championships

The students who took part in the competition ranged from Years 3 to 6. A total of seven teams competed in pairs, trios and groups of four. Each team was required to perform their routine in front of a crowd of at least two hundred people as well as before a panel of judges. For many of the girls it was their first time competing in such a professional environment.

The standard of competition on the day was extremely strong and all the teams performed extremely well with many of them producing a personal best performance on the day. The Year 3 team consisting of Charlotte, Alana and Ifiyenia won equal 3rd on the day in the Year 3 Minis Section. The Years 5 and 6 pairing of Brigid and Alex made it into the Final to perform again, eventually taking out 9th place.

All the teams should be extremely proud of their efforts. They began preparing for the event in February so it has been a long campaign full of hard work and dedication. We hope this event has given them the confidence to train hard again next year in the Aerobics team.

A big thank you must go to ACE Aerobics and their team of coaches that prepared the teams this year. Thank you to Chardon, Steph Amelia, Bec and Alice for all their time and effort in coaching. They are excellent young female role models for the students.
