2018 / 2019 Accounts
Following last nights successful AGM & Open meeting, two club reps have come forward offering to fill the two vacant "Clubs' Representative" positions on the Executive Committee. All we need now are volunteers for Chairman, Secretary & Treasurer. The latter position has been vacant for 21 months; leaving the Secretary to hold the financial reins. Both the Chairman and Secretary have indicated that 2019/20 will be their last year, so volunteers are urgently required to work with the present holders, rather than wait until next year's AGM - The DSC needs new young blood.

Individual member, Jake Kelly, is going from strength to strength in his tumbling career. This is a Facebook post made by his mother.
Incredibly proud of our Jake, for being picked to represent England in the Loule Cup, Portugal in October and to top it last night his coach told him he’d made the GBR Team for the World Age Championships in Tokyo in December , to say he was over the moon is an understatement, he shouted the house down. Great achievement for Jake and the coaching team at Wakefield Gymnastics, so glad all the hard work and dedication has paid off.
