GV Lockdown Challenge
Gymnastics Victoria would like to invite all our Victorian clubs to participate in the #GVLockdownChallenge.
During lockdown Gymnastics Victoria ran a series of challenges for clubs and their members to participate in with the top three clubs for each challenge receiving a cash prize to put towards the club thanks to funding from the State Government of Victoria.
Following on from this we were able to bring our clubs a fourth GV Lockdown Challenge supported by Oz Trampolines who awarded the winning club an 8m Air Track mat.
Gymnastics Victoria then ran a fifth #GVLockdownChallenge with the challenge supoprted by VicHealth and based on our Gym4Me program.
We encouraged entrants and their clubs to share their challenge entries with the gymnastics community on social media using the hashtag #GVLockdownChallenge and tagging @gymnasticsvictoriaofficial on Instagram.
Gymnastics Victoria would like to thank everyone who has taken took part in the challenges, the winners for each of the challenges can be found below.
