This weekend was our Junior Teams competition. We had 6 fantastic teams performing, including THREE 7-8 year old teams, a brand new venture for Tuggerah Lakes! We had so much support and assistance throughout the weekend, from helping with hair, to dressing and herding the teams together, to just asking if Louise had eaten anything today, we are so thankful for our club members!!
We were exceptionally proud of our "Smile" 7 and 8 years team, and our "Sparkle" 9 and 10 years team for a few reasons. For many of the girls in these teams it was their very first year of physi, and almost all of them had never been in a team before this year. This is a tremendous achievement to get out on the floor with their friends and perform as beautifully as they did!
Well done, of course, to the "Sparkle" and "Shine 7 and 8 years teams who received 3rd and 2nd place, respectively, and to the "Smile" 9 and 10 years teams who received 3rd place. The "Sparkle" 7 and 8 years also received the Dance Award! Our 15 and 16 years team worked beautifully, with the best timing we have seen from them this year, but unfortunately missed out on placing this year.
This weekend also hosted the Open Advanced Ladies competition. This competition is for any lady, of any age, to compete for a place in the State and eventually Grand Finals. Ladies that compete and do not progress to the next stage will compete again in the Sectional Ladies Championship day on the 16th. We had an amazing 7 ladies compete in this section, with an incredible 5 making it through to the State Finals next Saturday! This is the highest number of ladies to progress in this section that we have ever had, and we are so proud of each of you!! A big thank you to the ladies that came down to support our competitors in this section - even ladies need their mums!!
So buckle up Tuggerah Lakes - as next weekend we have an exceptional THIRTY THREE competitors in the State Finals at Hurstville Entertainment Centre. If you want to come down and support our amazing friends, tickets are available at the door - Adults $20, Non Competing Children $12, Cash preferred.
