GV Lockdown Challenge

Gymnastics Victoria would like to invite all our Victorian clubs to participate in the #GVLockdownChallenge.

Over the coming weeks Gymnastics Victoria will be running a series of challenges for clubs and their members to participate in. The #GVLockdownChallenge is supported by the Victorian Government and there will be multiple opportunities for clubs to win a cash prize. The total prize pool will be $18,000 split across the different challenges.

We encourage clubs to share their challenge entries with the gymnastics community on social media using the hashtag #GVLockdownChallenge and by tagging @gymnasticsvictoriaofficial on Instagram or @gymnasticsvic on Facebook.

However, competition entries are to be submitted through Jotform.

Skills Challenge Monday 10 August until Wednesday 19 August

For the third challenge some of our high-performance gymnasts have helped us to set our clubs a challenge. 

Clubs should put together a routine of no longer than 90 seconds that incorporate all of the six different gymsport skills. Gymnasts should perform the progression of the skill most appropriate to their level. We’re looking to see creative ways that clubs can incorporate a range of gymnasts, skills and progressions.
