Competitions assist in developing confidence and solidify what it means to be, and work as part of a team. It is also a reward for many months of practice and rehearsals. Parents and friends are encouraged to come and show their support for the students. In addition, it is a good way to meet and socialise with other parents and teams. Participants will be admitted free into the competition, while parents and supporters will be required to pay an entry fee.
Depending on the age group, we will be entering between 3 and 5 competitions throughout the year. The competitions are held between July and October, exact times and dates will be advised around late May. Please note competitions can sometimes fall in school holiday times in September.
As Calisthenics is a team sport, points can be deducted or teams may be unable to compete if people are missing. Therefore competitions are compulsory for all team members. We understand there are always extraordinary situations that arise, so you would need to inform your coach if you have a problem with any of the competition dates ASAP so alternative arrangements can be made to minimise the disruption to the team.
