Team spirit

We’ve all heard the saying, there’s no "i" in team. The old adage couldn’t be truer when it comes to Physie teams.

November loomed and most zones and Individual competitions were finished, the countdown to teams began. There’s something special about being part of a team. Whether you’re 6 or 60, getting on that floor with 7 other people that you have spent hours and hours of time practising with, is such an honour. When I think about teams, I recall the endless drills perfecting the team walk on, making sure you’re on your spot, that your toe is on your marker and the all-important diagonals are on point! I’m sure many have asked, “when you say diagonal do mean to the corner or more like about 45 degrees?”. “Do we turn on 10 or after 10?”

Teams means the sound of thigh slaps, perfectly timed heads and the end call of 1, 2 3 and! The silence at the end of a routine, followed by the ever impressive, perfectly synchronised clicks and marching back into positions. Don’t forget to show those teeth and smile!

For those teams lucky enough to bring home the blue or red pennant, it's very exciting and a fantastic reward for all your hard work.

But at the end of the day, although cliched, it’s not just about winning. It really is about creating club spirit, loyalty, making lifelong friendships and supporting one another.

I love seeing the smiles on my girls’ faces when they walk off with their team. You can see how proud they feel. It’s about trust, dedication and most of all, fun!

Congratulations to all those who competed in a team and thank you to those who supported from the stands.

There's definitely no "i" in team, but the word "mate" is.
