The exciting spring season is not yet over but many of you are already looking forward to autumn and the RG group exercises.
I love watching groups perform. It is also hugely moving to witness the strong friendships that the girls develop and the mature way that they support and push each other towards a shared goal.
It will be an especially fun and challenging season for the Junior groups. Not only do they need to master 2 different routines but they will also be competing to qualify for the European Championships and the first ever World Championships for Juniors.
Here is a quick reminder of the different groups that we will be seeing in Estonia in autumn 2018.
- Mini (2010-2011) free routine
- Children (2008-2010) 5 hoops
- Youth (2006-2008) 5 ribbons
- Juniors (2004-2006) 5 hoops + 5 ribbons
- Seniors (born 2003 and earlier) FIG program
The FIG program for Seniors in 2018 is 5 hoops + 3 balls and 2 ropes. In 2019-2020 they compete with 5 balls + 3 hoops and 2×2 clubs.
Junior groups in Estonia are allowed to compete with one routine only. However, only groups performing 2 different exercises have the chance to win the Estonian Cup and/or the title of Estonian Champion.
Looking forward to new creative routines and wishing you all sunny summer of training and plenty of relaxing!
