Women's Gymnastics Australian Levels Program
The Women’s Artistic Gymnastics National Commission along with Gymnastics Australia, in consultation with the gymnastics community, have commenced phase three of a four phase plan to launch a new Australian Levels Program (ALP).
The ALP aims to bring the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics community together (including the International and National Levels Program, State Levels Programs and Club Levels Programs), in one pathway across Australia. Aligning with the Gymnastics Australia strategic priorities of Engage and Enthuse, Enable, Excel and Endure, this program will provide stability and longevity for Women’s Artistic Gymnastics in Australia.
Australian Levels Program at a glance
Based on recommendations from the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Technical Committee, the Gymnastics Victoria Board approved the implementation of Gymnastics Australia's Australian Levels Program in Victoria in 2015 (subject to a formal announcement by Gymnastics Australia).
The competition structure will remain in a similar format to previous years, with enhancements that position Women’s Artistic Gymnastics for future growth and retain gymnastics in the sport. State Stream (Limited Hours) competitions will continue next year, with skill requirements aligned to the Australian Levels Program. State Pennant competitions will also continue in their recognisable format for Level 2 and 3, with ALP 1 being run as a fun circuit-based event.
As well as the current unlimited and Limited Hours (State Stream) competition divisions, - Levels will also be divided by age groups, providing more gymnasts more opportunities for success in Levels 4-10.
A summary of the recent Gymnastics Australia survey of the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics community, focusing on the implementation of the Australian Levels Program is now available.
