May I take this opportunnity to introduce all of our gymnasts to our brand new JGA mascot
JJ THE GYMNAST
For those of you who remember JAMIE 'THE JUMPING' SPRINGBOARD (our old company mascot) you will be pleased to hear that he has gone on to bigger and better things, he is currently on a beach somewhere catching up on some well earned rest, lucky for some!
JJ is the newest member of the JGA team, and he has come on board almost like a motivational role model for the young members in the Academy!
We feel it is important for children to have some words of encouragement in order for them to better themselves, not only in gymnastics but in their schooling as well. To be honest, it is sometimes not enough for children to hear this from their coaches or teachers, they need someone or something to aspire to; and this is where JJ fits in.
Every month JJ will post some personal words of encouragement to all of our gymnasts in order to try and motivate them to excel in their gymnastics classes. Not only will his words be his own personal messages, but he will also incorporate famous quotes from sporting personalities, power figures from around the world, and even from fictional characters he likes to watch on the TV in order to inspire our JGA members!
So kids, meet your new mascot, and come and read what he has to say: and maybe, just maybe he might be able to give you all encouraging words of wisdom!
