Update from the Trustees 04.03.19
As you are all aware the club has seen some significant changes over the last year, and particularly so in the last few months with the departure of Alan.
In the background the trustees have been working to find a new Head Coach that would fit in with the club’s ethos.
Over the last few days we have made an offer to Claire Thornton, currently Head of Gymnastics at Berkhamsted Gymnastics club, and we are delighted to report that this has been accepted.
Claire is a BG qualified Level 5 High Performance Coach in women’s artistic gymnastics as well as a regional women’s artistic judge but is also an ex regional level gymnast with over 24 years’ experience in coaching children of all levels of ability, from preschool to elite. Claire has some fantastic ideas and will receive our full support to implement these over the coming year.
We are absolutely certain that Claire will provide the expertise, experience and passion to take Arabian to the next stage in our development. Naturally, we don’t want to lose the family atmosphere which the club has been renowned for, and whilst Claire will enable us to take our gymnastics abilities to the next level this will be done in a fun and measured way.
Claire will start at Arabian on May 6th, although it may be a little earlier pending her commitments to her gymnasts.
We are sure that with Claire on board, the support of our staff and coaches, 2019 and beyond will see great things at Arabian.
