The following gymnasts have been offered places on the High Performance Junior European Squad from the 1st of January to the 31 May 2016. This squad is for girls in the 2nd year of Espoirs, and both junior years, so for 2016 girls, born 2001 – 2003.
The big competition for this squad is of course the Junior European championships to be held in Bern Switzerland with the WAG Junior qualifications being held on 1st of June. Anyone familiar with these gymnasts will know there is going to be fierce competition to make the team for this event.
Congratulations to all gymnasts and coaches.
