On Friday 7th December, the Ascension Eagles had their eagerly anticipated Showcase at the ExCel Centre, Custom House. It's always an exciting time of the year as months of hard work come together and athletes are able to perform their routines to family and friends for the first time.
Programme Director and CEO Angela Green had this to say about the event:
"Thank you all! The Showcase is so important to us as it gives the athletes and teams the chance to perform in front of a crowd and get the opportunity to watch and support other teams in the gym. I am so grateful to everyone that made the effort to come and watch - even at this early stage of the season I'm sure you can see how hard the athlete's have worked and the potential in each and every one of them. I really enjoyed watching all of the teams! It's a great time to be an Eagle!"
We were also excited to have an unexpected visit from a Mr S Claus. Our athletes were really pleased to see him there- let's hope they're all on the 'right' list!
Once again, thank you to all AEC members, coaches, family and supporters for all that you do and your continued support of the programme. We couldn't do it without you!
A special shout out to the ExCel Centre for allowing us to use your fantastic venue once again- we really appreciate it!
Merry Christmas, and see you in the New Year!
