President’s Report on Beausejour Elites Invitational

The Beausejour Elites Competition was held at Edward Schreyer School on February 28th, 2015. The meet provided an opportunity for Beginners to Pre-provincial girls’ gymnasts to compete with 8 clubs throughout the province. In total 132 gymnasts competed for various awards.

The clubs in attendance were: Gymcats, Gymkyds, Selects, Southeast Royals, St. Andrews, Teulon Gymnastics, Winnipeg Gymnastics Centre and the host club, Beausejour Elites. Gymnasts’ individual scores will be posted on the MGA website.
This was my Second visit to Beausejour Elites Club at Edward Schreyer School. The club trains in a regular-sized school gymnasium and needs to set-up and take down their equipment each time. I got to meet Vice President, Theresa Spapens, newly appointed Head Coach, Lesley Paterson, her coaching staff and many of the volunteers who had done an incredible job of running the meet.

In speaking with a number of parents, they had nothing but praise for the way the meet ran. In closing I would like to thank the Beausejour Elite Gym Club, Theresa Spapens, all the coaches, judges, gymnasts, volunteers and parent spectators for an enjoyable day. It was a pleasure to take photos, watch the competition and be part of the proceedings.
