We’re really excited to be able to announce our Bounceback from lockdown – again!!
Our first classes will resume at Astro GC, Livingston on Friday 30th April, with Lasswade following on Tuesday 11th May, & finally Meadowmill on Wednesday 12th May.
Although there are still some COVID restrictions- & indoor group sport is currently only permitted for U18’s – we can’t wait to see everyone back in the gym!!
Some classes are already full – but we do have a few spaces for new members.
If you’re interested in coming along to one of our classes for some trampolining fun- please contact the Club Secretary at secretary@cityofedinburghtrampolineclub.co.uk  for further information.
We’d love to hear from you!

SG Leadership Course

  • 8 March 2021

CETC are the first club in Scotland to pilot the on- line Scottish Gymnastics Leadership Course. The number of CETC coaches & gymnasts showing interest enabled 3 courses to be rolled out consecutively over February & March 2021. A 4th on-line course is scheduled for CETC members in April/May.
The course content is designed to be accessible & relevant for any club members, including gymnasts, coaches, committee members & volunteers from age 12 years & up.
The 4 learning outcomes allow participants to explore areas such as understanding self & others, communication, and feedback, planning & review, and finally, leadership into practice.
We are excited that 30 learners have started their journey into leadership and it’s been a great opportunity to facilitate our young people in gaining a transferable qualification for their CV's throughout lockdown. 
Thanks to Fiona Fyfe (tutor & Performance Coach) for facilitating the courses, supported by CETC Head Coach, Lauren Jeffrey.

March Fundraiser - ‘Against Breast Cancer’

  • 6 March 2021

CETC normally support a cancer charity each year by holding a fundraising event at the Club. As we are unable to do that this year- we have chosen to support the charity ‘Against Breast Cancer’ during the month of March - & are asking all Club members, families & friends to donate their unwanted bras to help raise vital funds for pioneering breast cancer research.
The same bras also help to support small businesses in Africa. Together with their recycling partners, their textile recovery project prevents these bras going into landfill, before giving them a new lease of life in developing countries such as Togo, Ghana and Kenya, where bras remain too expensive to produce locally.
Successful ventures like this keep many families in developing countries out of poverty whilst providing employment for people at home in the UK.
For every tonne of bras collected, Against Breast Cancer receives £700 to fund their breast cancer research. Donating as many old bras as you can - could really help make a difference!

Hang on in There Everyone!!

We may not be back in the gym just yet- but that doesn’t mean our gymnasts & coaches haven’t been busy at CETC!
Head Coach Lauren has been organising a weekly timetable of ’Online Programmes’, with the help of senior coaches, to keep members engaged until we are able to open up classes again.

On-line Zoom sessions are the way to keep in touch with all our members – with lots of varied activities, encouraging fitness & fun – with some chat sessions for parents too, so that they can keep in touch with the coaches- & each other!

Hopefully it won’t be too much longer before we can all be together again!!

Christmas Jumper/Party Week (14th – 20th Dec 2020)

As we couldn’t have our usual end of term Christmas party day this year- we turned it into a fun Christmas Jumper & Party WEEK!
Gymnasts attended classes throughout the week wearing their favourite Christmas jumpers (the more outrageous, the better!) & every session this week was a fun-filled session with lots of games.
Thanks to coach Kirsty (who was gutted she couldn’t organise her usual party nonsense!!!!)- but still managed – under these changed circumstances- to again make sure of Christmassy fun classes for all our gymnasts.
Everyone had a great time- & an enjoyable ending to a very different year for us all.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE - & A HAPPY (hopefully) COVID- FREE 2021!!!
