First Credit Union leaps to support local teen

Born on Instagram, garden trampolining (GTramp) is a form of freestyling trampolining that is fast becoming popular worldwide, with over a hundred thousand videos posted on social media sites.

First Credit Union is proud to have jumped on board with this growing phenomenon and is sponsoring 16-year-old Hamilton boy Max McQuoid who will be representing Australasia for the first time at the 2019 GRTGames in Vista San Diego.   

After winning the GTGames in Takapuna in January, Max, a student at Hamilton’s St Johns College was one of the hundred athletes from around the world to be invited to compete at this year’s 3rd annual GRTGamesUS.

The event which is held in California starts on 30 June 2019 and is a showcase of the “best of the best” and new upcoming talent in the GTramp community.

The support received from First Credit Union has made Max’s journey to the GRTGames possible and Max says he is “excited to be representing Australasia on the world stage.”

First Credit Union’s General Manager, Simon Scott said that supporting local upcoming athletes is important. “Max has shown he is committed to doing well in his chosen sport and First Credit Union is proud to be able to help him achieve his goals.”

“We look forward to following Max’s journey over the coming weeks and wish him all the best.”
