Contribution to Gymnastics: Head coach Dima is  advanced level judge and is the National Tumbling Coordinator. Along with running our own clinics for our staff to ensure correct methods and techniques are being used, KSTP also run clinics for any club wishing to bring a group of
athletes in to further their tumbling skills.

KSTP have 7 current judges and encourage all committed athletes to attend the beginners course once they are of age. They provide more than our required number of volunteers at events and promote
volunteering amongst all our families.

Dima works closely with GA and helps develop and present courses be it in NSW or around the country at different state congresses. Each year KSTP hold our Annual National Tumbling Clinic which last year spread all the way to New Zealand. The clinic schedule incorporates workshops for
coaches where they can gain an understanding of the structure of our programs with the focus on elite development. Each year around 60 athletes an coaches representing all states.

 KSTP are actively involved in the promotion of Tumbling,  performing at local school’s fetes and fairs as well as community events where we can. During the holidays, KSTP have up to 1000 children from all over Sydney attend with their vacation care centers to participate in a trampoline sports
focused program at an introductory level.

In 2017 performed on major tv shows such as Little Big Shots on Channel 7 as well as a huge primetime talent competition in Germany. 7, which we were invited to be part of due to our past performances. They have regular performance spots at Carols in the Domain, McHappy Day and the Hawkesbury Show all with the intention of showing as many people as we can just what our sport is.
