Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) classes are for boys who want to represent Eureka at competitions around the state and country. Eureka Gymnastics Club offers classes for boys for levels 0-10. The gymnasts learn routines that have been set by Gymnastics Australia and are used around the country. In MAG, boys compete on six apparatus: floor, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars, horizontal bar.
Gymnasts in these levels compete up to six times in a year. The primary focus of these classes is to develop key shapes and skills, but the skills needed for competitions routines are also taught during the classes. To perform these routines, the gymnasts attend competitions in Melbourne and Geelong. Additionally, any gymnast in levels 3 or higher can also be selected for the State Development Squad. The competition season runs from July to November.
In the higher levels, gymnasts can qualify to compete in the Victorian Championships. As with the junior levels, athletes in levels 7-10 can also be selected to represent Victoria and compete at the Australian Championships. Boys in levels 5-10 are eligible for selection to the State Development Squad, depending on their performance at the Victorian Championships. The competition season runs from March to June.
