WAG Development Squad

The GV WAG Development Squad provides opportunities for athletes and coaches throughout Victoria to participate in the athlete and coach High Performance pathway.  Entry to the Program is by invitation and based on the athletes and club results at competitions. Athletes (through competition results) and coaches (through athlete invitation or as an observer) can attend clinics across the year to enhance their gymnastics skills and knowledge. 

This key initiative of the new High Performance plan is for selected gymnasts in levels 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Future, Junior and Senior International. The first clinics will be held on the weekend of Saturday 9 February and Sunday 10 February 2019. Coach attendance is a key component of the WAG development squads.

Coaches of athletes selected to be part of the development squads are required to attend each clinic. Other Victorian WAG coaches are encouraged to attend the clinics and any accompanying coach education sessions as an observer.

The anticipated total cost for the 3 camps will be $150 - $200 per athlete per year. The cost for coach observers (coaches attending without athletes) will be $25 per session. Updating points will be available for all coaches attending sessions. For further contact Julia Fitzsimons, Jess Haintz or Jamie Parsons at the GV office on (03) 9005 4700. 

Please note that the 2019 WAG Development Squad Program is a pilot program. The program will be reviewed and adapted as required for future years.
