tumble in the tropics


We would like to invite your child to participate in South Cairns Gymnastics ANNUAL CLUB FUNDRAISER DISPLAY EVENT.
All programs including our Under5 programs will be showcasing their gymnastics talents on the day.

What’s it all about?
Tumble in the Tropics is a social fundraising event that is filled with fun and excitement as we watch our gymnasts perform their display routines. This year Tumble in the Tropics will run in 2 parts; on the 25th and 26th March we will film all of the routines and then the major event will take place in Term 2, 23rd April at St Therese’s School where families can watch the entire show. There will also be live family entertainment on the day including a tumbling display, family challenges and a pop quiz with chances to win prizes and raffles from local businesses. Outside there will be a tasty BBQ lunch, home baked goodies and drinks available to purchase.
All Gymnasts have already begun learning their routines in their class. Each routine is choreographed to ensure that all gymnasts; whether participating or not, will continue to progress in their current program.

Part 1: Scheduled filming of each groups performance at South Cairns Gymnastics (limited to 1 spectator per gymnast on this day)
25th March 4.30-6.30pm: Competitive Squads Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Opal, Diamond & Falcons
26th March 12.30-4.30pm: Under 5’s, GymFun & GymSkills girls & boys, GymSports Levels, Trick & Tumble, Pre-Comp, Amethyst & Dragons
Please note that once nominations close you will receive a scheduled time for your groups filming, these will be approx 30minute blocks (not 4 hours)

Part 2: 23rd April 11-2pm, Gymnasts and their families will gather in the hall at St Therese’s School and will view the entire show on the big screen! there will be loads of interactive family entertainment including tumbling displays, parent challenges, prizes, raffles as well as food and drinks.
Although we understand it is not the same as watching the performance live, due to our increasing numbers we simply cannot fit everyone into the gymnastics club as we have done in the past. There are many great benefits to our new viewing format including larger seating capacity, cooler seating area (better ventilation/fans), more comfortable seating, better viewing position to see the performances. Please note that the sound issues we had last year have been rectified.

What do we wear?
