35th Annual Academy Awards
At the Island Gymnastics Academy’s recent Annual Awards Banquet, the club’s top gymnasts were honored for the 2016-2017 season. Gymnasts were selected from each training group based on competition results, work ethic and leadership, level of improvement over the year, and sportsmanship. Participation medals were also awarded to the Academy’s Mini Tumblers to recognize their hard work and accomplishments in the pre-competitive program.
It was an exciting year for the Academy’s competitive teams, who travelled to numerous competitions in the Atlantic region as well as events in Florida, Montreal and Las Vegas. The club’s programs continue to grow with over 1200 registered gymnasts.
In the women’s program, award winners included Emma Christensen, Callie Harding, Sadie Lund, Emma King, Rae-lee MacDonald, Ella Nichol, Bailey Burke and Madison MacDonald.
The men’s program winners included Ethan Mayne, Ryan Dwyer and Alex Mann.
The Academy also recognized Charlotte Thompson with the Sportsmanship Award.
