  • GIRLS’ GYMNASTICS

    COMPETITIVE GYMNASTICS

    Girls displaying aptitude and natural talent may be invited to the competitive WAG 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 Girls Development Program. Maroochy Beach Competitive gymnasts follow the WAG National Development Program with the aim being representation at Regional, State and National competition.

      Women’s Gymnastics has been proven to
    • Enhance co-ordination and agility, for body awareness and balance
    • Develop posture and confident body movement, including the ability to land safely
    • Enhance creativity and build self-confidence, for sport and life
    • Develop strength and flexibility, for life's constant challenges
    • Develop healthy minds and bodies for now and later life

    Girls participate in 4 apparatus under the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Program

    Vault

    This apparatus shows off the gymnast's athletic qualities, as the movement is performed after a run up of up to 25 metres. The gymnast must put both hands on the vaulting table. As far as marking is concerned, the judges will evaluate the complexity of the movement, the position of the body, and the landing, which must be perfect.

    Uneven Bars

    The uneven bars are by far the most spectacular apparatus of the competition. Imagine the strength, the precision, the rhythm, the concentration and the courage that these girls need to perform their exercises with such simplicity. The gymnast moves from one bar to the other, alternating grip changes, releases and regrasps, saltos and changes of direction with circular swings.

    Balance Beam

    The beam has a certain magic about it. Many people wonder how the gymnasts manage to perform on an apparatus where balance, acrobatic sequences with or without flight elements, gymnastic jumps and turns all play a role. It is an exercise not only of flexibility, but also of concentration, rhythm and expression.

    Floor

    This exercise is the public's favourite and they are ready to clap as soon as the music begins. Many gymnasts will tell you that they have had their greatest ovations when performing floor exercises to music. The floor is the area where a gymnast can fully express all her grace, her personality, and her technique, combining acrobatics, gymnastics and dance.

     

    WAG Hair style for Competition

    Level 1-3 gymnasts style hair in a high bun secured with a pink hair scrunchie, available for purchase through the front office. 

    Level 4-10 gymnasts are requested to style hair for competition as demonstrated in this video, secured with ribbons.
