Special Olympics is growing!

Special Olympics Gymnastics provides people with intellectual disabilities with the opportunity to develop their physical fitness, strength, balance, flexibility, coordination and confidence. 

Following last year’s inaugural event, Gymnastics Victoria is once again proud to integrate the Special Olympics into the MAG & WAG Senior Victorian Championships, from April 27th-30th at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.

Twelve Gymnastics clubs across Victoria ran dedicated Special Olympics programs last year, with this number set to increase in 2018. 

Balwyn Gymnastics Club is one of several clubs new to running the program in 2018. Gymnastics Team Leader and coach, Emma Hosking is excited to see her participants develop.

“Special Olympics has allowed our participants who have previously been in all-abilities classes to enjoy a new challenge; putting their skills into routines which they have the opportunity to perform at competitions.”
