Fundamental Gymnastics is a skill-based program open to all school-aged girls, regardless of age, ability or physique. Maroochy Beach Gymnastics fundamental program exists to build strength, skill and character through gymnastics and to promote healthy, active, happy children!
Girls are educated under the Women's Gymnastics Australian Levels Program and participate in 4 apparatus being vault, uneven bar, balance beam and floor. Gymnasts participating in the Girls’ Fundamental Gymnastics program have the option of competing at in-house & local events.
Gymnasts progress at an individual pace as they master required skills safely and with correct technique. Fundamental shapes, movement and techniques serve as the foundation for higher level skills. Skills become more challenging as the child commences as a Beginner and progresses through our Bronze, Silver and Gold award levels. Fundamental Gymnastics teach important life skills such as discipline, self-reliance, confidence, self-worth and team camaraderie, in addition to confident physical movement, spatial awareness, focus, agility and time-management. Fundamental Gymnastics challenges girls to establish individual goals, provide an opportunity to attain their full potential, enjoy rewarding experiences, develop a positive attitude to physical activity and sets the foundation for any sport or life itself.

Gymnasts, parents and coaches gathered at the Kunda Park venue on Friday 20th October to welcome home WAG Level 10 athlete - Karleigh Fraser - following her return from the 2017 New Zealand Tour.
Karleigh was selected to the Australian WAG Level 10 team to tour New Zealand, following her 1st All Around placing at the 2017 Queensland State Championships and 3rd All Around at the Australian Championships.
Karleigh is a huge inspiration for all of our athletes and a great ambassador for Maroochy Beach Gymnastics. Our younger athletes were in awe of her incredible achievements - not only in attaining Level 10, but also her success with selection for Queensland and Australian teams.
Karleigh is already back in training preparing for another great year of competition in 2018.
