I am so excited to be working with the Intermediates for 2018! I am Carrie Altinger, and I am taking on the role of Head Coach for Inters 2018 alongside our Senior Cadet, Natasha Blackmore. This year will be all about development for both the team and individual, and striving for each competitor to challenge themselves, and make their goals realities.

From week one, the girls will have their very own ‘Goals Workbook’, which we will spend time on each class, mapping out what goals the girls have, and smaller goals which they will need to achieve to reach their larger aspirations! These goals can be anything from a single apparatus movement, a flexibility based trick or dance technique they wish to perfect. Each week we will go through these goals, and spend tailored time with each girl to help them achieve these over the course of the year.

Our routines are upbeat, modern and fun and will bring a fresh look to our Inters team. Natasha and I have worked hard to bring them new ideas, and fresh choreography they will love, so they can enjoy working hard to them each week.

For 2018, we are striving to compete interstate in the NSW Championships later in the year, allowing the girls to compete on a new stage, and alongside new teams that we may not have competed with throughout the course of the year. We are very much looking forward to this trip.

Lastly, all I want for our team this year is for each competitor to learn new goals, have exciting routines that they ENJOY, and to have FUN this year to make it a memorable year for all involved!
