Coach from the Banchory club, Melanie Stewart Wills said: “We are absolutely delighted with all the results.
“Trampoline and DMT are individual events but as a club we all pulled together to make sure the hard work throughout the year by our members was celebrated and rewarded.
“We had volunteer parents there as coaches, as judges and officials, as well as supporters and that makes such a huge difference.
“We would like to thank all the parents from the club for the support they give their children throughout the year as you really do need to be dedicated as a whole family to the sport when you are competing at this level.
“A huge thank you must also go to all the local businesses that have helped by donating raffles etc for our fundraising events. The whole team were kitted out in newly designed leotards which received so many compliments.
“This truly was a very special day for our club.”
