2019 State Development Squad

 Aim

The aim of the GNSW MAG State Development Squad is to grow the grass roots of our MAG through a Program that fosters sport development.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the State Development Program for consideration by the MAG GC an athlete must:

  1. Be registered with GNSW.
  2. Gymnasts age range between 8 – 12 years (born between 2007 and 2011).
  3. Gymnast registered by their MAG Club before the closing date for the SDT day.

State Development Squad Testing Day

The SDT aims to identify gymnasts with the most potential for long-term, high performance within the sport.

Unlike competition which is restricted to a routine and spread across six specific apparatus with their own unique demands, the SDT assesses an individual’s natural physical abilities and their current general gymnastics skill as a projection of their future abilities and potential within the sport.

The SDT day is an 'Open doors' day for all MAG gymnasts who satisfy the eligibility requirements. The SDT will allow you to know what your physical condition is with respect to other MAG gymnasts of NSW.

 The SDT is an opportunity for gymnasts of varying physical ability with the option to scale the difficulty of the stations to suit their level.

Please contact with your Club to register for the SDT day.
