…. first day of ECH(12.06.2019)

…. first day of ECH(12.06.2019)

The first competiton day belonged to juniors with baton equipment and seniors with pompom. The evening belonged to VIP guests, presidents of participating countries and delegates.

It goes without saying that sunny weather, which doesn´t save heat is reflected on the thermometer in the hall. Although hal lis air- conditioned. The number of competitors and filled tribune they heat the hall with heat from the inside. Yet it is much better in the hall than in the outdoor June heat. The organizers also counted on this option when designing the start list. Annoucement of the results is after each comprehesive discipline so the participants could leave the hall as soon as possible.

Favorite, but more time – consuming, interim results have been omitted to minimaze lobby time. It was successful and at the time when the last formation was to start, the results were annouced at the hall was preparing for nex day competiton.

A standardized podium was installed in the hall for stage appearances, the same as the contestants know from IFMS competitons.

A march in whis gymnastic or otherwise demanding elements are not included, can also start on another surface.

Such a possibility reduces the demands on transport from Czech republic and on the installation. The second option is to combine a route with a stadardized surface and parquet. However a comment was made on this variant, the morning marches were over the parquet. That was the only reminder of the day.

At the evening meeting were discussed, not only course of the championship, but also the current status and perfomace level of majorettes, the majorette sport trends and the possibilities of championships in different countries. Let us be surprised but the choice of place to maintain the quantity and quality of competitors is restrictive.

II. Asian Championship in Bishkek, capital city of Kyrgyzstan

II. Asian Championship in Bishkek, capital city of Kyrgyzstan

After last year’s majorette competition premiere, the Asian Federation of Majorettes Sport and Baton Twirling held the competition for the second time in Bishkek. The competition took place in a modern sports hall during the days of the “Dance Olympics”. The Olympics included various kinds of dances up to jumping rope. For majorettes sport was reserved Friday, June 7, the first of three days. From the first year, majorettes sport has gone a few steps ahead, even though it is still looking for a way to increase both the competitors’ base in terms of quantity and quality. Compared to the first year, the performance shift was seen, thanks to Mrs. Oksana Polianichko, president of the Federation. The president works tirelessly to promote this new, modern sport, but there are not enough coaches, choreographers, assistants and referees. The cadet age category was the most overwhelming in the competition, which is logical because they start with majorettes sport.

The organization of the competition, including the decorations, was perfect, the VIP personalities, among them the Minister of Sports, greeted the competition personally. We invited the minister to the World Championship in Prague.

The International Federation Majorettes Sport has awarded two cups at the competition as a prize for the work so far and for future motivation to formations from the ProfiDreams Team club in Bishkek:

· baton classic cadet group
· mini baton cadet formation

We will see some formations at the World Championships, the representation is nominated by the Federation. It will be interesting to see the pioneers of majorettes sport from Kyrgyzstan compared to already experienced rivals.

Asian Federation of Majorettes Sport and Baton Twirling in Bishkek celebrated its 5th anniversary and we were honored to be there. In the future years, we wish the federation to keep up its set trends to have a large membership base of children and youth and enough coaches. If it’s in IFMS efforts, we’ll be happy to help.

II. Championship of Asia

II. Championship of Asia

Three days before holding of The IInd Asian Championship of Sport Majorettes (4.-6.6.) trained majorettes from Bishkek (Kyrgyztan) under the direction of Anna Novotna from the Mažoretky Hraběnky Kamenice club. The seminar for majorette sport development support was originally meant for classical majorette groups, so Anna was delegated to the seminar (her team of senior women won the championship title at the 2018 World Championship). The program was expanded to include consultations during the hosting, i.e. the participating majorettes showed individual formations and Anna corrected them to comply with current rules, including minimizing technical errors. The result could be seen then directly at the competition and it was clear that the girls who attended the training were visibly better, reaching the medal positions.
