Salto Coaches Attend Level 3 Theory Course in UUJ



Our six level 2 coaches were very busy this weekend (6th – 7th Feb 2016), as they attended a level 3 theory module. The course was taken by BG workforce tutors Neil Burton, Anne Marie Barr and Terri Fisher in the University of Ulster, Jordanstown Campus. Conor, Chloe, Kirsty, Emma, Pearce and Kelly are a mix of Men’s and Women’s Artistic coaches who the club have encouraged to progress on to the next stage of the coach education ladder. The group now have a portfolio to complete and practical modules to get signed off by NI Technical experts before becoming fully qualified level 3 coaches in their disciplines. Good luck guys!

Success for Salto gymnasts in Antwerp!

Manage to catch a glimpse of gymnastics on you tv screens last week?

Team Ireland traveled to Antwerp and displayed top quality gymnastics at the World Artistic Champships alongside countries such as China and USA.


The six-strong Irish squad have been working hard in the build-up to the competition, with both WAG (Salto) and MAG (Lowestoft) gymnasts being put through their paces at pre-camps over the last number of weeks, before moving on to Belgium’s National Training Centre in Gent to step up preparations. The gymnasts arrived in Antwerp on Wednesday to begin their pre-competition training.

In the WAG competition, Ireland are represented by Nicole Mawhinney, Emma Lunn and India McPeak. On the MAG side representing Ireland are Anthony O’Donnell, Chris O’Connor and Andrew Smith.

Supporting the gymnasts at the competition are: Head of Delegation, Sally Filmer; Head Coach MAG Barry Winch; MAG Coach Simon Gale; Head Coach WAG Sun Jei and WAG Coach Stanislav Sevostyanov. Medical support will be provided by Fiona Murphy.

Also representing Ireland at the championships are judges Mary Murray and Dennis O’Donoghue, while Mairead Kavanagh travels as an FIG Invite Judge.

Review from Netmums

Fantastic introduction to gymnastic classes for girls and boys from 3 years old. My son is very active, he loves these classes and they have really helped with his concentration. The staff are amazing and have dealt wonderfully with my son who can be quite a handful. The classes are great fun, they last for an hour, they learn new skills and keep fit. I drop my son off now and then pick him up later, so I get a break too.


Gymfusion Northern Ireland 2011, Salto NGC

Here is Salto NGC’s Gymfusion Team.
We took part in the Gymfusion Festival from British Gymnastics today ’05/11/2011′ at Jordanstown, Belfast in Northern Ireland. We had to do ‘Safari Theme’
We had very much fun and enjoyed seeing other Clubs and their Team performing different styles of gymnastics like acrobatic and rythmic
Its mostly thought we were the best Artistic Gymnasts, with good tumblers and parkour lads
