Competitive Gymnastics for Girls in Ballarat

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics classes are for girls who want to compete in high-level gymnastics. These classes offer girls the opportunity to compete in competitions around Victoria. In addition, higher-level gymnasts even have the opportunity to compete in interstate or international competitions.

Eureka is the only club in Ballarat to have gymnasts – both girls and boys – selected to represent Victoria at the Australian Championships.

The Australian Levels Program

Gymnasts learn the routines that are set by Gymnastics Australia and are used nationwide. Girls compete on four apparatus:

  • Vault
  • Uneven bars
  • Balance beam
  • Floor

Levels 1-2

In these levels, girls learn the basics of competitive gymnastics and develop key skills needed for higher levels. In order to help these girls focus on performance without worrying about being in front of an audience, gymnasts only compete at in-house competitions at Eureka.

Similar to levels 3-7, gymnasts in levels 8-10 compete in two different Divisions. The competition season runs from March to June for both Divisions. Gymnasts in these levels compete in the Senior Victorian Championships however they are required to qualify.
