Territorial Championships were held in Yellowknife in May 2007. This competition saw gymnasts
from Yellowknife and Hay River competing for their respected clubs. We had boys competing in Level 1 and Level 3 and
the girls competed in Pre-Competive and Provincial level 1, 2 and 3.
The Ed Bennington Award was presented to Nick Walker of the Yellowknife GYmnastics Club.
There was a new award presented this year to a precompetitive or first year competitive girl at the
Yellowknife Gymnastics Club. The recipient of the first Denise Robinson Award was Abigale Coad, a first year competitive
gymnast and a young girl who was coached by Denise in the past.
