Team Victorian Championships NL7-10 2017

Some questions have been raised about how clubs enter teams in this event. The information below is intended to clarify the eligibility of athletes to enter and how clubs form teams.

  1. Clubs form teams in each of the levels 7, 8, 9 & 10. No individuals.
  2. The principle for an athlete's eligibility to be in a L7-10 team is the same as we use for all other Victorian Championships

    The gymnast must either be at the level or the level DIRECTLY below in order to be part of that team.

     So NL5 gymnast cannot be in a L9 team.

  3. When clubs compete team members from the level directly below, (eg L8s competing in a L9 team) then if those athletes attain the qualification score required to pass the level (L9) , then they are now considered to be at that level(L9) and can't go backwards.

    This presumes clubs use their experience to form teams with athletes of the appropriate standard who, after competing in Team Vics, will then be considered, in the case of my example above, L9 gymnasts.

  4. WTC encourages all clubs with enough L7-10 athletes to enter. This is an opportunity to make a team of a mix of limited and unlimited hours athletes should a club choose to do so.

10 March 2017  WAG362017 


WAG gymnasts are permitted and encouraged to compete in the Gymnastics stream that best suits them. This occasionally includes moving between streams to find the best fit for each gymnast.

 At times, athletes’ circumstances may change so that they are no longer best placed in their current stream. Gymnastics Victoria supports all gymnasts to progress to their fullest potential, and this includes competing in whichever stream that they best fit.  This principle pertains to International Stream, National Stream (Open and Limited Hours) and Gymstar.

14 June 2016 WAG322016 There has been an update to information in the Event Handbook regarding the Southern Cross Classic - 
Please note that: 

If a club has less than 3 gymnasts in Level 4 the gymnasts can be entered. GV will place them together with other individuals from the region to form a team.

If there are not enough individual gymnasts to form a team within the region (e.g. 2 individuals) they would be added to an existing team of 3 from the region to compete with them and receive any awards but their scores will not count towards the team. This will be arranged by Gymnastics Victoria with permission from both clubs.

Further clarification for Victoria:

Q. I’m concerned about my smaller gymnasts dismounting from the high bar. What can the coach do to ensure dismounts are safe? Specifically, what matting is allowed on UB for NL3-6?

A. See ALP manual section 4.4 pg6. “Without obstructing the judge’s view – Coach may stand between bars during all levels – matting up to 30cm deep may be used under the rails and for dismounts.”
