Windsor’s Kachan School of Tumbling and Performance (KSTP) emerged as a standout at the Gymnastics NSW Annual Awards, securing honours alongside three exceptional gymnasts. More than 600 people attended the annual awards ceremony at Doltone House in Sydney on February 11, to recognise the achievements of gymnastics within New South Wales.

KSTP clinched the title of Trampoline Gymnastics Levels Coaching Team of the Year, a testament to their outstanding performance during the previous season. The club boasted the largest group of athletes at both regional competitions and the State Levels Championships, earning six state titles and the NSW Levels Club of the Year trophy.

Their success continued at the National Clubs Carnival on the Gold Coast, where KSTP dominated with an impressive tally of 14 gold medals, 11 silver, and 5 bronze across all trampoline disciplines.

Individual gymnasts from KSTP also shone on the international stage. Alexsa Kachan, a 13-year-old prodigy who grew up within the gym, earned the titles of Junior International Tumbling Athlete of the Year and Junior International Double Mini Athlete of the Year in Trampoline Gymnastics. Kachan’s stellar 2023 began with a national championship in her age group, followed by a gold medal at the Junior World Championships in Trampoline.

Cheyanna Robinson has had an incredible year.

Cheyanna Robinson, a 24-year-old double-mini trampoline specialist, snagged the title of Senior International Double Mini Athlete of the Year. Robinson’s remarkable year included podium finishes at the Coimbra and Santarem World Cups, ultimately being named the Double Mini Trampoline World Cup Athlete of the Year by the International Federation of Gymnastics. She also contributed to Australia’s 4th place finish at the World Championships.
