Is Competitive Gymnastics Right for My Child?

Are you considering a MAG or WAG class for your son or daughter? Doing high-level competitive gymnastics can be extremely rewarding, although it requires a big commitment from both the athlete and their family. We hope this information is helpful in deciding if this program right for your child.

Eureka Gymnastics Club is affiliated with Gymnastics Australia and Gymnastics Victoria.

MAG and WAG Classes Need Dedication

Gymnasts in MAG and WAG classes train up to five days a week and attend competitions around Victoria and interstate, depending on their level. In fact, Senior WAG gymnasts from Eureka have even competed overseas!

However, we understand that not every child is able to make the kind of commitment required to be successful in MAG or WAG. For these gymnasts, we also run Gymstar classes. Gymnasts in these classes also have the opportunity to compete at competitions around Victoria, in participation type competitions.

We have put together the following documents to help answer your questions about our competitive program:

If you’d like to arrange a trial class for your child please contact us. Gymnasts in MAG or WAG programs do not train in Gymstar classes if they are accepted into the competitive program.
