The competitions are: Voluntary Level 5 – 8 year olds, Voluntary Level 4 – 9 year olds, Voluntary Level 3 – 10 year olds (not awarded this year), Voluntary Level 2 – 11 year olds, Scottish Championships – Espoir (12 & 13 years), Junior (14 & 15 years) & Senior (16+ years).

Garioch Gymnasts won all five of the trophies on offer with the results being as follows:

Level 5 (8 Yrs) Champion = Rebecca-Ann Greig

Level 4 (9 Yrs) Champion = Layla Williams

Level 3 (10 Yrs) Champion = Brooke Masson
