She became head of the boys section, which currently has over 30 boys aged between 6 – 16 years of age, in April 2012. Della is keen for the boys to continually have a goal to work towards and so eoncourages them if they wish, to compete regularly. They performed well at their last competition in March 2012 and are currently preparing for their next teamgym competition in March 2013.
