From 17 to 23 July the city of Cascais in Portugal will host our annual training camp in all three disciplines: Trampoline, Double Mini-Trampoline and Tumbling!

The philosophy of the camp is to provide access and enjoyment for those who would like to improve their performance under supervising coaching experts provided by the UEG TRA-TC. The experts, including 2000 Olympic champion Irina Karavaeva, will organise the improvement oriented trainings for young participating gymnasts and their coaches. The experts will organize also the exchange of experience for the coaches. The participants will learn the trainings’ planning and the progressive construction of routines as well. Gymnasts must be aged between 11 - 18 to participate (born between 2005 and 1998).

Sounds like something for you? You can register via your National Federation until 29 April!


Hope you enjoy the competition!
