I have been doing acro at SXL for almost 9 years and have been competing for 8. I started doing gymnastics at SXL at the age of 6 because my friend in pre-school did it. During my 8 years of competing I have experienced being a trio base in level 1, a pair top in level 3A, a trio top in level 4, a pair top in level 7, a trio base in level 5, a trio base in level 11-16 and a trio base in level 12-18. I have been to Nationals twice, and will be going again with my new 12-18 trio very soon which we are all beyond excited about. I have also had the privilege of representing my country with my 11-16 trio.
Acro is a unique sport which is why I love it so much, it gives you many opportunities such as representing your club/country and travel. It’s also a gateway to many other sports but best of all are the friends I’ve made along the way
