This December all of our gymnasts will take part in the Sugarloaf Gymnastics Christmas showcase. From December 13th – 19th our gymnasts will display their best gymnastics skills for their parents/guardians. The gymnasts will have the opportunity to show you some routines they have been learning and skills they have been working on since September.
By now you will have received an email with the date and time. Ensure to read this carefully, unfortunately arriving on the wrong day or time will most likely result in your gymnast being unable to take part, as routines are specific to each class group. Please be reminded that there is very limited seating so strictly only 2 guests per gymnast are allowed in order to seat everyone comfortably. There is limited space for buggies/prams and should you require wheelchair access please give us advanced notice.
A reminder of times and additional information can be seen below:

This year we will be running a fundraiser during our Christmas Shows for a cause close to our hearts and we would ask you to please donate whatever you feel comfortable with when you attend the show.
This year we decided to support one of our gym families. We have had the gymnasts of this family as members in the gym for a number of years and have been aware of their quest to organise specialist surgery in the US that is not available in Ireland, or anywhere in Europe, for their physically disabled 7 year old daughter, who was born with a very rare orthopaedic condition. This will improve her quality of life, reduce her pain and improve her mobility.
The good news is that their health insurance agreed to cover the surgery in the US, at a specialised center and it will be in early December. The bad news is that they just found out, that it won’t cover the months of extensive physical therapy and rehabilitation required that must be carried out in the US following the surgery. The cost is a significant amount and all the funds raised will directly go towards the physical therapy costs, we hope to be able to support them as much as possible. Sugarloaf Gymnastics will donate €1 for every €10 raised by our members.
We will also be running a raffle with some excellent prizes on offer from Sugarloaf Gymnastics branded leotards and bags, to vouchers from Quatro (our gymnastics leotard supplier) and Sugarloaf Gymnastics to a home Beam (donated by GymGym.ie). We really appreciate these companies supplying prizes. More information and how to buy raffle tickets available soon.
Frequently Asked Questions
What time should I arrive?
No earlier than the time listed. For shows on Saturday 15th, this will be an extremely busy day with only minutes between shows, if you arrive early you will not be allowed to enter the training centre and will have to wait until your designated show time. Arriving earlier also means that finding parking will be difficult.
What should my gymnast wear?
Hair should be tied up, no jewellery. Leotard is preferable but not essential for girls, fitted leggings and tshirts can be worn. Boys may wear shorts/tracksuit bottoms and a fitted tshirt. Tinsel in hair and Santa hats are very welcome 🙂
How long will the show last?
No longer than 1 hour.
What should we bring?
As little as possible, gymnasts will not store any clothing in the lockers, clothing and shoes will be given to parents/guardians as everyone will exit the building through the roller door at the far end of the training centre. Above all bring lots of enthusiasm and support for the gymnasts!
I will have my baby/small child with me, is that ok?
Yes, as long as children will sit on your knee and your gymnast is still only using up their allowance of 2 seats and not taking a seat from another family that is fine. Children must be kept with you at all times. We do not have space for prams and buggies unfortunately so must be left at the door.
