    COMPETITIVE GYMNASTICS

    The Maroochydore Gymnastics Club has a proud history in competition in Mens Gymnastics. Over the years our club has produced many State Champions and competitiors at the Australian National Championships.

    Boys displaying aptitude and natural talent may be invited to the competitive MAG stream, learning advanced levels of the National Development curriculum and potentially representing the Club at regional, state, national and international competition.

    Our Competitive Program

    Expectations are placed on the gymnast to work hard and improve their physical abilities and skills. Positions within the competitive team are offered on the understanding that the gymnast aspires to high levels of performance and intends to fully meet the training and competition requirements of that team. Gymnasts can expect the dedication of their coach to the task of developing their gymnastic ability to their maximum potential. The programs put in place will give your child the best chance to maximise their individual potential and provide future life skills, if correctly followed with determination, effort and persistence.

    Strength, flexibility and shapes are the key components of the Boys Development Program. Maroochy Beach Competitive gymnasts follow the MAG National Development Program with the aim being representation at Regional, State and National competition.

    Include 2016 Competition calendar; Holiday training schedules; uniform order form; uniform sizing chart

      Men’s Gymnastics has been proven to:
    • Build strength and prepare the body for the challenges in life
    • Enhance co-ordination and agility, allowing the body to move like lightning
    • Develop posture and confident body movement, including the ability to land safely
    • Challenge the mind and body to reach new goals
    • Develop healthy minds and bodies for now and later life

    Boys participate in 6 apparatus under the Men’s Artistic Gymnastics Program:

    Floor

    This is an exercise in pure acrobatics, alternating between powerful tumbling series and the composure necessary for balance and strength elements. The gymnast endeavours to display virtuous rebound height, whilst connecting the elements of their routine with gymnastic artistry.

    Pommel Horse

    Routines on this apparatus are characterised by circular movements of the body with legs together (circles) and pendulous swings with the legs separated (scissors). Gymnasts also show a spectacular combination of these skills called flairs. Throughout the routine the gymnast performs smooth combinations of these movements, turning and travelling along the horse. Utilising all parts of the horse, while maintaining an extended body line and straight legs.

    Rings

    This apparatus is known for its difficulty of strength and swinging elements. The free moving quality of the rings makes it difficult to remain stationary during held elements, where any movement of the rings incurs a penalty. During his performance, the gymnast should demonstrate control, strength and balance in the presentation of forward and backward swings and strength holds parts. The gymnast's dismount allows him to show his aerial abilities prior to landing.

    Vault

    The gymnasts during their twenty-five meter approach to the vault must develop the necessary power to complete all their aerial skills before landing. Upon take-off from the board the gymnast explosively propels himself upwards, dynamically pushing off the table to generate greater height and distance in the second phase of flight. This enables a higher level of acrobatic skill and extension to be performed prior to a stable landing.

    Parallel Bars

    A predominately swinging apparatus, that is interspersed with only a few held or strength elements. Swings are completed above and below the bars and consist of acrobatic flight elements, changes of direction and swing types. The gymnast's routine ends in a dramatic dismount off the side or the end of the bars.

    Horizontal Bar

    This is a very spectacular apparatus, largely due to the acrobatic releases and re-grasp flight elements. The routine is based on swinging parts without stops, and includes extended forward and backward giant swings, combined with near bar elements, changes of direction and grip, as well as the release and re-grasp movements. The high dismount from the bar allows the gymnast to show his acrobatic talents and landing prowess.
