TWO REGIS School girls have a spring in their step after confirming their places in the national league trampoline finals.
Izzy Hauxwell and Rosie Budge will be going for gold when they get the chance to perform against the best in the country at the Lee Valley VeloPark at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London at the start of December.
The two-day event, beginning on December 2, will see medals handed out in trampoline, synchronised, DMT and disability disciplines.
The talented youngsters, who are members of the Dragonflyers Trampoline Club based at the Westloats Lane school, are no strangers to success with Izzy, competing in the 13-14 age range, already attaining national final medals while Rosie, in the 11-12 section, has claimed glory on the international stage.
The Dragonflyers have even more reason to cheer with the news that national development silver medallist and international finalist Anya Johnston also qualified for this year’s league finals alongside last year’s gold medallist and international medallist Sofija Kalnicenko leaving coaches hopeful of adding even more silverware to the club’s impressive trophy cabinet.
The club, which was founded 11 years ago, had its first national finalist in 2004/5 and has grown in strength ever since; sending seven competitors to world championships only last year.
With such success, unsurprisingly, the club has become extremely popular with youngsters keen to try out trampolining.
Dragonflyers recently set up a recreational section and due to popular demand the club is extending the number of these sessions available.
Anyone interested in trying out the sport for fun or for competition should email the club to arrange a free trial lesson on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets for the finals, costing £15 an adult and £12 a child for the whole weekend are available.
