AGM Meeting Reminder
When: Saturday 21st May
Time: 8:30am
Where: Sacred Heart College Gymnasium
             Gate 4
All club members are encouraged and welcome to come. We need at least 17 people to  hold our AGM which is a legal requirement as an incorporated society.  Please try to attend - the meeting is not long.
I would also invite you to consider being part of the club committee.  We have had several longstanding committee members retire this year.  We need people for the role of  Secretary and also general committee members.  The roles are not as time consuming as you may imagine, as many administrative roles are undertaken by our coaches in their non coaching hours.  The role of the committee is providing strategic direction and decisions, and working with coaches and other committee members, but there are hands on roles including assisting with organising competitions, which are a big focus for us and a major fund raiser also.  There is an opportunity to focus on areas of interest - e.g., competitions, fundraising, property matters etc.  Meetings are 4-6 times a year at times and locations that suit everyone and most of our  communication is done by email.  Committee work is an opportunity to give back to the club, support you daughter’s sport, and work with a group of dedicated  - but fun! -  like minded individuals.  I encourage you to seriously consider this and join the committee as it will not only be personally rewarding for you but it is essential for the ongoing management of our club.
I invite you to contact me by phone or text - 0274 378 444 - or email if you have any questions, I am happy to discuss involvement with you in more detail.

Thanks everyone -  I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you all next week

This weeks spotlight.....

It is already getting cold in the evenings and its is competition season. 
- Please ensure gymnasts have a warm jacket and pants for after training.
- The girls have layers as it is easier for them to take off their layers
- The girls have something warm on their feet for after training
If you are like me and starting to get sick Viralex are miracle pills! They contain a high dose of olive leaf combined with astragalus, beta gluten, zinc and vitamin D to provide support of the immune system.
Eating a balanced diet from all food groups is important as it builds immunity and provides the necessary vitamins and minerals your body needs to function efficiently. 
Before training:
Before training, avoiding an excess amount of carbohydrates such as bread will make the gymnast feel less bloated. Carbohydrates are an important food group, but keeping to a minimum of 30g before a training will help the gymnast feel less sluggish and heavy in the stomach offering a more productive training session.  
Protein is an excellent source of energy for the muscles before a workout. Many of the girls are coming to training tired. By increasing their iron levels with a delicious portion of red meat, this can help them.
After training:
Again, meat is great for recovery as it helps repair the muscles. 
If you have to drive 30mins plus to get home, there is another option. Protein powder shake with water. This is the best way to get protein in, straight after training to help muscles repair. Protein powder is best to have within the 20mins of your exercise, as it is most effective.  
Having protein powder doesn't mean you will have big muscles. You get big muscles with the type of exercises and how much weight you lift when doing the exercises. We are doing gymnastics not body building, so you should not be worried about this :)

Here are some recipes to get more of the good stuff in!
