tumble in the tropics


We would like to invite your child to participate in South Cairns Gymnastics

SATURDAY 22nd APRIL 2023 (Term 2, Week 1)

All programs including our Under 5’s, Recreational and Competitive programs will be showcasing their gymnastic 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 as a live show in front of an audience at South Cairns Gymnastics Club. 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. There will be plenty of yummy food, 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.

As we have done pre-Covid, we will be removing the Beam area to allow for more spectating, however as our membership numbers have grown substantially we will still have a limited seating capacity. Due to this we will be offering half and full event tickets for spectating to allow more families to enjoy the show. Please note that once nominations close you will receive an option to purchase spectating tickets for the session your child/children are in OR you can purchase tickets to spectate the full event.

School Holiday Rehearsal
As our Recreational programs such as GymFun and GymSkills do not attend their classes over the school holidays we will be offering short scheduled rehearsal times for those that would like to practice before the event. The rehearsal is not compulsory however it is recommended so that they are familiar with how it will look on the evening as it will be a bit different to their regular training. There is no cost for the rehearsal.
Thursday 13th April (2nd week).
