Keeping Up with Demand – New Embroidery Machine

As the country finds its way out of the recent global issues, more and more businesses are turning to local manufactures. Some sectors are growing well as part of this move. One of the big challenge is coping with the growth and demand on our team members and equipment. In order to reduce our customer lead times the Rae-Line team has added many new staff, new sewing machines and more recently this new 4 head embroidery machine. This brings the count of machines to 3, with a combined head count of 12.

Victorian Gymnast crowned winner of Australian Ninja Warrior 2019

Ninja Warrior 2019

Victorian Gymnast Charlie Robbins has been crowned the winner of Season 3 of Australian Ninja Warrior after being the furthest and fastest ninja in last night’s Grand Final.

Charlie, a 21-year-old adult gymnast and from Peninsula Gymnastics in Rosebud, defeated fellow Peninsula Gymnasts Ashlin Herbert and Zak Stolz as well as 8 other contestants in the second part of the Grand Final to take out the mantle of Australian Ninja Warrior 2019.

“It’s been such a crazy experience, the word I’ve used a lot is surreal. It literally just doesn’t feel real. I don’t think it will feel real for a long time,” Chalie said after his Stage 3 run of the Grand Final Ninja Warrior course.
Despite being portrayed as a ‘Golf Ninja’ due to his passion for golf, Charlie has 15 years of Gymnastics training behind him which played a key part in his ninja success.

“Being able to swing on obstacles is the number one thing that helps you on the ninja course. Gymnastics teaches you how to generate swing which makes a massive difference in being able to conserve energy as you take on the ninja course,” said Charlie.

“This is one area that has really set the gymnasts apart from the other sportspeople and fitness professionals on Ninja Warrior.”

Charlie began doing KinderGym to develop fundamental movement skills as a four-year-old before spending several years competing in Men’s Artistic Gymnastics where his favourite apparatus were High Bar, Rings and Parallel Bars.

During high school Charlie joined the Peninsula Gymnastics Xtreme Teens recreational gymnastics program where the focus was on parkour-type gymnastics skills, before progressing to the Adult Gymnastics class which he is still a part of today.

Three years ago Charlie began coaching gymnastics as well; currently he coaches four nights a week at Peninsula Gymnastics focusing on trampoline gymnastics, recreational gymnastics, parkour style FreeG and Xtreme Teens.

Charlie believes working as a Gymnastics coach gave him another unique talent to help him as a Ninja Warrior.

“When you work as a Gymnastics coach you start to look at skills differently as opposed to when you are a gymnast. This coaching analysis was also really helpful with the obstacles on the ninja course.”

Peninsula Gymnastics Director Rebecca Robertson believes Charlie is a great role model for younger gymnasts.

“Charlie’s success is testament to his love of movement and how he has continued with gymnastics for the last fifteen years,” said Rebecca.

“He has a passion for movement, enjoys challenging himself and really embraces the social side of gymnastics with our other adult gymnasts and the athletes he coaches.”

Gymnastics Victoria CEO Jamie Parsons is thrilled to see the role Gymnastics has played in Charlie’s Ninja Warrior success.

“Many Ninja Warrior contestants are familiar to the Gymnastics community so it’s no surprise to us that Charlie did well because of his gymnastics background,” said Jamie.

“Gymnastics develops crucial fundamental movement skills and we look forward to training the next generation of ninja warriors in the variety of ninja gymnastics classes happening all across Victoria.”

Rae-Line Sports Padding congratulates Charlie on his Ninja Warrior success.

Rae-Line is a proud partner and sponsor to Gymnastics Victoria. Contact our team if you are seeking ninja obstacle elements. Visit the Rae-Line catalogue to view the Rae-Line Ninja Kits. Excited to assist in getting Ninja Programs up and running at your club.

Length of Service Awards – 5, 15 & 20

Length of Service Awards

Recently Rae-Line gathered together to hand out some service awards for four of our employees.

Both Pushpa Lalji and Laura Dean recently clocked up 5 years of service at Rae-Line.

Pushpa is part of our sewing team and Laura started as a sewer, become leading hand in that area before taking 12 months off for maternity leave. On her return, Laura has worked in a Manufacturing Admin role where she is responsible for producing all of the cutting markers for the cutting team.

Rob Moody who was presented with an award recognising his 15 years service at Rae-Line. Rob started as the delivery driver back in 2004 and then moved in to the Materials Coordinator role in 2008. While still in that role today, the role itself has changed greatly as Rae-Line has grown and Rob has grown with it. Rob plays a key part in Rae-Line’s desire to deliver on time, every time by ensuring the Production Team has all the materials they require to ensure we meet our customers sometimes challenging demands.

The final award presented today went to Michael Vorhauer. Michael started at Rae-Line in 1998 and this year clocked up 20 years of service after having nearly 12 months away from Rae-Line in 2017. Michael has performed multiple roles during his time at Rae-Line. He started in 1998 as an Upholsterer before moving in to the truck driving role. He then moved in to a Material Coordinator role before moving in to his current role as a Product Development Coordinator. Michael works closely with our major customer Kenworth Trucks and with over 20 years’ experience at Rae-Line, he has a wealth of knowledge that certainly benefits both Rae-Line and Kenworth.

Rae-Line would like to congratulate all 4 employees and thank them for the hard work and dedication that has certainly contributed to our success over the years.

Victorian gymnasts ready to go for Gold at the Australian Gymnastics Championships

Victoria’s best gymnasts are ready to take to the competition floor at the 2019 Australian Gymnastics Championships at Melbourne Arena.

The two-week competition is the biggest event on the Australian Gymnastics calendar and is a step towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympics for many Senior gymnasts.

Top gymnasts from every state and territory will come together in Melbourne to compete to be the Australian Champion in six different Gymsports. Athletes will compete in Women’s Artistic, Men’s Artistic, Rhythmic, Trampoline and Acrobatic Gymnastics and for the first time Aerobic Gymnastics will be joining the multi-sport competition.

The first week of competition features the Men’s Artistic and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics, with the Senior International team finals taking place on Friday 24 May and Senior International individual finals happening on Sunday 26 May.

Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist on Floor Alex Eade will be competing in the Senior International Women’s Artistic Gymnastics competition on Friday 24 May, as will Commonwealth Games Bronze Medallist on Vault Emily Whitehead. They will go up against the likes of other Medal winning Senior International gymnasts Georgia Godwin (QLD), Georgia-Rose Brown (QLD) and Emma Nedov (NSW).

Another Victorian to watch is Men’s Artistic Gymnast Tyson Bull who has recently competed at the Melbourne World Cup, Doha World Cup and Baku World Cup and achieved some fantastic results. Tyson placed fifth overall on High Bar at the Melbourne World Cup against a tough line-up of International competitors.

Gymnastics Victoria CEO Jamie Parsons has expressed his excitement about the upcoming Australian Gymnastics Championships.

“The 2019 Victorian State Team is one of the strongest teams we’ve had attending the National Championships, with some established Senior athletes and some promising up-and-coming gymnasts.

“The entire Victorian gymnastics community wishes our 2019 State Team the best of luck at the Australian Gymnastics Championships!” said Parsons.

This year, Gymnastics Victoria implemented the High Performance Plan for Women’s Artistic, Men’s Artistic and Trampoline Gymnastics. The plan aims to help athletes, coaches and clubs succeed internationally as well as helping to prepare the next generation of elite level gymnasts.

“We expect to see some world-class performances from Victorian gymnasts in 2019 and we anticipate fantastic results from our athletes over the next few years,” said Parsons.

The Australian Gymnastics Championships begin on Monday 20 May and end on Monday 3 June. A full competition schedule can be found here.

Attracting a New Market to Your Gymnastics Facility

Ninja Starter Kits by Rae-Line

Our team have recently had a few exciting conversations with venue owners that have managed to add ninja to their program and drawn in a new customer group. Great to hear that the changes have brought in new customers not stolen participants from other programs they were already running.

The Rae-Line team have created kits that can be used to quickly bring Ninja into your facility. The ‘Starter kit’ for the little ones and the ‘Master kit’ for the older and more advanced.

The new programs while attractive to both girls and boys has had a significant impact on bringing in the boys. With boys exiting gymnastics earlier than girls this may assist in keeping that market engaged for longer.

Give our team a call today if we can assist you with your Ninja needs or any other Gymnastics sports padding and soft coached aids. Delivery Australia wide. 03 9728 8300
