'The Floor' mini docu-series launches! Episode 1 Arabian Gymnastics Club
7th April 2022, 17:25p.m. | The Floor
Gymnastics Ireland is happy to announce the launch of a mini-documentary series about our annual flagship participation-based event – The Floor, which is a performance opportunity for member gymnasts of any level, ability, age & discipline to show everyone just how skillful, fun, entertaining & exciting gymnastics is.
In this series we follow the journey of ‘Diamond Display Team’ a group of gymnasts from Arabian Gymnastics Club who, along with the expertise of their coaches prepare and perfect their routine to take part at this event.
Participating in The Floor provides the pathway for teenage girls to remain involved in the sport of gymnastics beyond competition. As part of a display group, teenage girls have the opportunity to build lifelong friendships, work as part of a team, share their skills and talent all whilst having FUN.
Promoting The Floor through this series is one of the many activities encompassed in this year’s Gymnastics Ireland new strategy and research targeted at retaining current and recruiting new female teenagers in gymnastics, in partnership with the Sport Ireland Women in Sport programme.
Gymnastics Ireland’s Participation Manager Aimi Baker said:
"I am really excited about this new docu-series that we're filming with Arabian Gymnastics. This is the next step in our year long project 'Keeping Teenage Girls in Gymnastics'. We really hope that it shows off the benefits of The Floor and the benefits of taking part in an event like this. We hope that it encourages all clubs to take part, because we would love all of our clubs to be part of it and make it a huge success'
Arabian Gymnastics Club has been taken part in The Floor since it was first launched in 2016 and usually enters around 4 display teams every year.
The Floor will take place on 12th June 2022. Entry deadline for clubs is Friday 29th April.
