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.Read More
The Memorial as an open and advancing competition has found its place in the calendar of international competitions. It is a competition whose main attribute is, as in the Czech Championship, to support the efforts of groups and small formations to introduce new movement compositions, new choreographic ideas, elements and formations to match the contemporary tastes, musical and movement feelings of the young generation who do not know national boundaries, but they mutually influence the development of majorette sport. The memorial was supported by presence of the following clubs:
AMA Opava, Andria Ostrava Hrabová, Charlie Hradec nad Moravicí, CHEEKY CHEERKY Hradec Králové, Daisy Ostrava Ostrava, Dračice Bystřice, Dream – Zábřeh, Dům dětí a mládeže (The house of children and youth) Hořice, Elité Ostrava, Fantasy Přerov Přerov, Gina Brodek u Přerova, Juventus Karviná, Kala-MKS Havířov Havířov, Klub mažoretek (majorettes) Valtice, LV 2 Sokol Písek, Mažoretky Bailar Praha – T.J. Sokol Petrovice I. Mažoretky BELLA Junior Chotěboř, Mažoretky DDM Bílovec, Mažoretky Severovýchod Zábřeh, MICHELLE Karviná, MiKaDo Karviná, Mirabell Teplice, Pietrovky Písek u Jablunkova, Rozetky DDM Třinec, Stars Ostrava Ostrava, TK Dancing Roses Opava, TS Mažoretky Minnie Český Těšín, Vinohradské mažoretky DDM Praha 2, SVK Mažoretky Edit Staškov, SVK Mažoretky SPIRIT Senica, SVK, MK BIBI Hlohovec, SVK, Mažoretky Tupot Dabrowa, PL and domestic MK Ballerisimo Hlučín
The sports hall in Hlučín, where the competition took place, is located in Tyrsova Street. Miroslav Tyrs, founder of Sokol association, the promoter of the aesthetic aspect of physical exercise in the spirit of ancient ideals, knew that movement was necessary for the healthy development and growth of man. Majorette sport is close to Tyrs’s legacy; is included in the aesthetic sports, while so far non-Olympic, and leads children and youth by regular exercise to move, competitions then lead to compare performance.
MJN was held under the auspices of Mrs. Petra Rezacova, mayor of the town, who officially opened the competition. The competition was attended by Mr. Pavel Pashek, Mayor, Mrs. Pavla Mruzkova, Director of the Elementary School Dr. Miroslav Tyrs, Mr. Josef Dolezel, president of IFMS with his wife Jitka Dolezelova, the director of the competition was Mrs. Karin Wronova, head of the organizing club MK Ballerisimo Hlucin.
The memorial was the last competition before the European Championship, from which advancement could still be obtained to Crikvenica. They were also awarded to foreign participants, so some of them will definitely become rivals to each other once again. Also in this competition, the advancing key was set for the Czech participants in the same way as in all competitions held under the auspices of the Czech Majorette Sport Federation and the clubs that use the advancements are members of the Czech representation in higher competitions. The advancing key for foreign participants differs and respects the fact that the competition is open.
For the jury Mrs. Monika Bergerová, the head referee, made a promise about objectivity of deciding, as the basis for supporting the development of majorette sport at home and abroad. The majorette Veronika Balarinova, the member of the organizing club, thanked the majorettes and organizers for majorettes.
Special prizes have also been awarded during MJN. Jiri Necid Memorial commemorative Cup as a well-deserved award and for future motivation, was awarded to clubs:
· To Stars Ostrava, CZ, group of cadets, with combined MIX tools. The girls came personally to thank, the award pleased them and they confirmed for themselves that they wanted to work on themselves and their dream was to get to the winners´ podium. But that depends on their leadership from now on, and we will help if circumstances require it
· Mirabell Teplice, CZ, mini senior formation, with the baton tool. It is admirable with which enthusiasm they participate in competitions. It should be noted that they commute from the distance-disadvantaged city of Teplice in Bohemia to the places of competition by public transport, which places its time demands. To get for example,
by train from Teplice to Hlučín and to start in time, it is yet difficult. Perhaps the cup will bring them a little bit of competitive happiness and especially for girls to stay with the sport.
· Spirit Senica, SVK, a club that introduced just 6 groups and three mini formations Performance and numerical strength was also presented by the Edit Staškov club, MJN participates regularly and together with Spirit Senica club and home MK Ballerisimo Hlucin, they were among the most numerous expeditions. The starting lists included 25 groups and more than 180 formations.
The competition was, like the Bohemia Grand Prix, filled already at the time of qualifying rounds going on, that then led to changes after getting the advancements.
In the final thanks, the director of the competition mentioned that the changes in applications, which were really a lot, are an administrative burden. The changes were even big in the days before the competition, which meant that the starting list was constantly changing. On the one hand, it is an advantage for the participants that their changes have been accepted, but on the other hand, when sound, live broadcast, managing of lining-up, broadcaster and evaluators should be in harmony, is such a situation really a difficult burden and can easily become a mistake, though all involved are doing their best not to be so.
The deputy mayor of the town Hranice expressed his wish for the MJN to settle in Hranice, as the seat of its founder. However, this will be on the agenda of the coordinating council, but we are already looking forward to the MJN remaining as big as it has won in recent years.

The last Saturday in May was not only in sign of the long-prepared contest of the 9th Bohemia Grand Prix, but also in sign of the European Parliament elections. Both of these events met in the sports hall of the Prague 16 – Radotin district, and so it happened that both the race andthe votingwere under one roof. The local organizer, Majorettes Bailar Prague, had to deal with space restrictions, which reduced the capacity for changing rooms. Participants’ understanding and thought fulness, however, helped to make the competition it self unprecedented, and everything was done in accordance with the program, the rules, under the abundant attendance of the audience, especially in the morning part.
Competitors from the following clubs came to the competition:
Ametyst DDM Nýrsko, Crazy Mažoretky Dům dětí a mládeže TREND Roudnice n.L., Daisy Ostrava, Elité Ostrava, Giny Brodek u Přerova, Klub mažoretek Valtice, Klub mažoretek Zakřany, Koloseum Dance Team Štěnovice, LASSIES Brno, LV 2 Sokol Písek, Mažoretky BELLA Junior Chotěboř, Mažoretky Hraběnky Kamenice, Mažoretky Panterky Dolní Beřkovice, Mažoretky TSAirai Borek, Mirabell Teplice, Mona Náchod, Tarabičky Nové Strašecí, Mažoretka Nový Bydžov, Postřelmovské mažoretky Postřelmov, PV Team Vimperk, SARRA Trutnov, Sevensport Příbram, SCARLETTE České Budějovice, TS Mažoretky Minnie Český Těšín, Plesna udruga Dijamant Sisak, CRO, Plesna udruga Ritmokracija Brdovec, CRO, Zelinske Mažoretkinje CRO, Tupot Dabrowa PL and local Mažoretky Bailar Praha – TJ Sokol Petrovice I.
Twenty girls in costumes from the organizing team and from the Mažoretky Hraběnky Kamenice club brought 5 flags to the site (Czech Republic, Croatia, Poland, Grand Prix, IFMS) and the opening was started. After the introduction of the chiefs, choreographers, assistants, who accompanied their wards to this competition, all the present and the audience at the live broadcast were greeted by its director, Mrs. Ivana Stribrska. Furthermore, the VIP guests, Mrs. Milosava Katić, the president of Hrvatsko udruženije mažoretkin timova (HUMT), Mr. Vlado Palac, the Vice President of HUMT and Mrs. Marta Pavelková, Vice President of the International Federation of IFMS, presented the greeting. Mr. André Němec, Deputy Mayor of the Gymnastic Unity of Sokol Praha – Petrovice I, officially declared the contest as opened. Thanks on bealf of all the majorettes, was presented by Nikola Kutilová, representative of the Bailar Club
The interest in participating in the competition was enormous, the capacity was fulfilled before the final rounds of the Czech Championship. Other candidates, as well as the Jiri Necid Memorial, then waited for the check-outs of those who obtained the advancing in the final rounds of the Czech Championship. Several places were also released by the health indisposition, but it was just tightly before the competition and it was astonishing that the others waiting in order in such a tight deadline arrived and filled the vacancies. While it is administratively demanding for the local organizer and for the announcer, yet other girls got in this way the chance. The pity was, however, those places on the starting list, which were not checked out and the entered formation did not start.
The competition was diversified by foreign participants, was running smoothly, ran according to the time schedule, the announcement of the results was brisk and in the afternoon block the competitors were able to catch the train after the announcement.
IFMS Cup as a well-deserved award and for further motivationhas been awarded
• TS Airai Borek, CZ, a group of cadets with the tool baton
• Dijamant, Sisak, CRO, group of seniors classic
• Zelinske Mažoretkinje, CRO, a group of seniors with tool baton
• SARRA Trutnov, CZ, a group of seniors with the tool baton
With thanks and the Sokol greeting “hello”, together with the deputy mayor of Sokol A. Němec

The solo baton discipline of female juniors and seniors was with ongoing results, which was not only met with the interest of foreign competitors, but also their chiefs and tourist accompaniment. They do not yet have on going results at home.The interest of foreign chiefs in consultation (feedback) is a good sign for finding ways to improve the performance of their wards.
VIIIth Slovakia Grand Prix became the first competition held under the fading of the roof majorettes sport organization International Federation Majorettes Sport in Slovakia. The sports hall in Nitra, designed for handball, is a suitable place for holding of such a competition because of its size, number of stands, facilities, largeness of the car park. The local organizer changed the city and the term from Saturday to Sunday, but it was definitely worth it.

After one year I was again invited to Moscow to a four – day majorette camp by Maria Shamina. I agreed with the pleasure. From 28.th to 31.th of March I was actively involved in the work of individual majorette teams but the most of my time I spent with trainings and consultations of majorettes individually. I was very pleased that I could be helpful and I could work on solo performances. But I wasn’t only one trainer.
Part of the training team was also the French trainer Jean Michelle Ruelle and his student Ales Desyy, who was focused on teaching twirling. The day before my departure, I became a spectator of the Majorette Cup Competition and I had opportunity to see choreography of most of the local teams. The whole camp enriched me very much and if I had the opportunity to come to Russia next year again, I would not hesitate.
