Bristol Future Gymnastics attended AAU nationals

Twenty eight girls from Bristol Future Champion Gymnastics, a division of the Bristol Boys & Girls Club, recently attended the 2019 AAU National Gymnastics competition in Orlando, Fla. and returned with five first place national champions.

Alongside their coaches, Jessica Morelli, Dejah Holley, and Chloe Cyr, the team represented Connecticut along with other teams from around the state.

“We are super proud of our athletes, it was the first time at nationals for half the team, ranging in age from 6 years-14 years old. Not knowing what to expect they brought their skills, confidence and team spirit to Florida” said head coach, Jessica Morelli in a press release. “This year, the AAU Age Group National Championships had a record breaking 2,500 gymnasts attend. Our coaching staff and their parents are tremendously proud of their national ranking achievements. This was the fifth year that FCG attended the National Meet. In 2014 we had just four gymnasts attend, to have been able to bring twenty eight with us this year was very rewarding.”
