By Fern Barlow, Year 7
I first started trampolining when I was 7 years old. I went to Marden Bridge sports centre for a long time, my coaches were Sean Dixon and John Douglas. Over time I made a lot of friends and learned new skills.
In September 2019 I joined Park Elite trampolining club and started training for my first competition with coach John Young. I met more friends and trained harder.
When I did my first competition it was a great experience and I loved it. I came 5th. I worked on my routines and after 6 months (and over 6 competitions) I recently won a gold medal at the NETTC regional qualifiers. Now I am part of the Northern Regional Squad and will be training to compete in June 2020 at the National finals at Birmingham Arena.
