Please support REBEL ACRO!

Hi Everyone,

Rebel Acro, a group of gymnasts from Ballincollig Gymnastics Club, are in the finals of Ireland’s Got Talent this Sunday evening.

One of our coaches, who is also a gymnast, is in the group, and we are very proud of everything that they have achieved so far.

We would ask that you would consider voting for them on Sunday evening, as we have no doubts as to their real talent!


Thank you so much!


Dear All,

We would ask that you avoid parking in the covered area in front of the blue doors as these parking spaces are reserved for CFSA coaches and officials.

We apologise for the delay in putting signage in place; this will be done at the earliest opportunity.

You are still welcome to use this area to drop off your child if you wish, then please proceed to park in the adjacent areas or at the front of the building.

We would be very grateful for your cooperation on this matter.

Well done!!

Hi Everyone,

Great day yesterday in Little Island for all involved in our club competition.

Well done to all the skaters who participated: it’s a pleasure to see so many competing for the first time, as well as the most experienced skaters. You all looked fabulous!

A very big thank you to everyone who helped, making it such a pleasant occasion as well as making it possible for it to run smoothly.

You are all amazing!

Competition tomorrow 9th March

Dear All,

Just a quick check list for skaters competing in Little Island tomorrow:

Please make sure that your skates are in order (check wheels, toepicks and laces); for skaters using the club’s skates, you can collect them from the hall and bring them with you to Little Island.

Don’t forget your dress, tights, hair accessories and especially your USB key with your music if you have not already handed it in.

The competition will begin at 3 o’clock. The hall will be open from 1.30. You should arrive at least 45 minutes before your group’s warm-up time.

Lastly, look up, smile and enjoy your time on the floor!

If you are not competing on this occasion, you are still very welcome to come and watch.

Looking forward to seeing you all there,


Owner of blue dress?



Hi Everyone,

We are trying to find the owner of this dress!! No label and no one seems to know whose dress it is…

One of our skaters would like to buy it / rent it for Saturday. If you recognise it please contact me (086 8077616).



Skating test this Saturday 23rd February

Hi Everyone,

Registrations are now closed for this Saturday’s test. The hall will open at 9.30, warm-up from 10.00.

Level 1 test starts at 11.00, higher levels to follow.

Please wear either a skating dress/skirt and top, black leggings with a top/jacket, or club uniform. No hoodies, loose jumpers or baggy pants. Long hair tied up.

Please note that criteria for passing any particular level are quite strict, so if you don’t pass a level it only means that you need more work, not that you are a bad skater. If you keep practising, you will be more than likely to pass it the next time!

Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

See you on Saturday!

*** No regular training on Saturday. If you are not doing the test you can make up for your missed class on a day of your choice, just inform your coach beforehand.



Skating Test on Saturday 23rd February

Dear All,

A reminder that the closing date for registration for the ARSI skating test is this Saturday 16th February.

In order to register, please bring your test fees (€5 per level) in a labelled envelope on or before Saturday, indicating which level(s) you are going to attempt.

We will regrettably be unable to include any skater who has not registered by that date.

Test requirements will be posted on our noticeboard.
