 Nov 2011 Hearty congrats to three of ICON’s finest and coach Janine Glover who travelled to Birmingham, England for the World Championships.  This event is the pinnacle of achievement for trampolining.  Kierran represented NZ proudly in Open Men’s Trampoline and Open Men’s Syncronised trampoline with Jaime from Extreme Trampoline club.  They came 19th!  Josie Te Rata came 10th in the 17-18 Womens Double Mini Category, well done!  She was also the dux of Epsom Girls Grammer School for Year 13!  Alexa Kennedy represented in tramp, syncro and double mini.  Nineth in all disciplines, missing finals by one place.  They each gained valuable experience and for Josie and Kierran, it has been the highlight of their careers.

 Sept 2011 A Massive haul of medals from ICON was gained at the 2011 Nationals in the North Shore of Auckland.  10 medals, one trophy and one sensational shield.  Thanks to our coaches Janine, Scott and Lance, everyone performed at their peak.  The team double mini shield was won by Kierran, Sean, Phil and Alexa.  This coveted award is highly sought after and it relies on every member of the team to pull out their best two double mini passes.  Good job Icon.
