Hartford Sets floor & vault competition was created to enable our squad gymnasts to show everyone what they had been achieving in the gym.

Sally Bailey and Michelle Oakes created routines which would be challenging, developmental but most of all achieveable. These routines have now been performed by hundereds of gymnasts from all over Cheshire & Merseyside and are also being used by a number of other clubs at their competitions. We have added new sets and tweeked the odd skill here and there to maintain the development of the squads.

The main objective for all gymnasts entering the competition is to have fun which is why we have the moto "who grins, wins". 

Here are some of the stories from the events and the Results.

Hartford sets December 2017

Wow, what a day!!

It was a first for our club, 420 entries with 3 visiting clubs and what a great event it was. With Christmas music and smiling faces, we experienced one of the best competitions we have held.
The green army of coaches had been making sure that children were ready for their comp and the gymnasts families were ready to see what their children had been working so very hard on.
We saw some of our youngest gymnasts compete for the very... first time and smiled all the way through. Even with butterflies in their tummies, they shone and performed their best to receive their “smiley face” participation medals. Some of them even went on to win apparatus medals too.
For some of our gymnasts, this was a competition to better their score from last time, and without exception, all of our gymnasts improved on their previous performances and we are very proud of them all.
As a club we achieved 33 gold, 44 silver & 30 bronze medals.
Our green dream team made sure that the event ran smoothly throughout a very long day, with jobs ranging from coaching, making refreshments, fundraising, selling leotards, judging, door duties and running. The green army also did a fab job of transporting equipment, setting up and planning before the day itself.
We are extremely lucky to have an amazing gym family who are there to support us whenever we need them. We couldn’t have made this event run so well without them and we want to thank them and everyone who took part in it for making it such an enjoyable day.
Merry Christmas
Charlie & Michelle

 Sets Comp December 2016

 Over 300 gymnasts, 6 visiting clubs & schools, a family of coaches & helpers, proud parents & grand parents and lots of good wishes and support. This is the recipe for a successful competition and that is what happened at our own Club competition yesterday.
19 years ago, Charlie and I had a dream and we are really proud to have seen our dream grow and develop into a gym club to be so proud of.
We work with some amazing children, and yesterday showed that no matter which level or discipline of gymnastics our children work at, they do it with such enthusiasm and try their best always.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made this event so successful.
