Well done to Hutt Valley GymSports for being named as a finalist for Club of the Year in the Dominion Post Wellington Sportsperson of the Year Awards 2014.

  • 24 GymSport qualified coaches, 14 qualified GymSport judges and 1 Brevet Judge
  • 2 Wellington GymSports Officials — Senior Coach and Senior Judge
