Festival of Gymnastics

“The showing and sharing of gymnastics through movement”.  Festivals provide the opportunity for teams to travel interstate, nationally and internationally to perform for Fun, Fitness and Friendship.  The Festival of gymnastics is an event where athletes and coaches can celebrate the sport of GFA and perform their skills and talents in front of an audience of their peers and spectators.  Although this is not a competition there are a variety of awards to receive rewarding teams for the effort they have put into their performances.  There are seven division awards, 5 gym sport awards and 12 performance awards.

Adjudicators are invited to provide feedback to the Coach regarding the team’s performance and provide tips for further performance enhancement.  The National GFA Program Manager is invited each year to provide the opportunity for those travelling to International events to gain sanctioning
