Ellie-May Peach

Ellie-Mae peach, AKA “PEACHY” and I am aged 12. I have been a part of the JLDC family for 8 months now after I made the decision to end my Gymnastics Career.

From the age of 8 I began my Gymnastics journey at Stubbington Springboard Gymnastics Recreational class where I was soon fast tracked to the squad, I completed my grades with distinctions and took the decision to further my prospects and join Portsmouth Gymnastic Club where I gained my Elite Grades 1 & 2.

I was lucky to have the opportunity to train with highly respected GB coaches who helped me gain my confidence and earn my place to compete in the south team to represent the south of England placing 2nd overall. I also became the Hampshire county level champion and had the opportunity to train alongside GB Team Gymnasts Georgia Mae Fenton and Catherine Lyons. Highlights of my time with Portsmouth Gymnastics would be competing in America, Orlando Presidential Classic and coming 11th out of 3000.

I was lucky to have been given the opportunity to attend the BGU Junior coaches cheerleading course which allows me to coach children up to 16 years of age I hope to further my skills in the future to become a level 3 coach.

I would love to further my sporting career and eventually train to become a PE teacher or sports Physiotherapist but above all I would love to continue my amazing Journey and play my part in winning many more trophies and making JLDC the fastest growing Dance and Cheerleading academy.
