  • What are we?
    We are a start-up company established in 2019 and owned by 3 gymnastics professionals who have been both gymnasts and coaches in the sport for over 30 years. We aim to provide another competition opportunity for any competitive gymnasts aged 9 and above to gain exposure in a different environment.
  • What is the AGC club membership fee?
    So that there is no barrier to entry and we can provide more opportunities to any gymnasts from any club, we have removed all additional fees and the only fee required is an entry fee per gymnast per round the club chooses to enter.
  • How do your competitions fit into my club?
    Our competitions are aimed to provide another option for gymnasts to gain positive competition experience which can be done alongside any other competition options and are for any eligible competitive gymnast aged 9 and above.
  • What levels do you have?
    Our “levels” are called leagues, which are designed to allow gymnasts to remain in a league across multiple years without feeling the pressure to move up each year. This allows gymnasts to continue to advance their skills even during competition season.
  • Are there lower leagues?
    No, as a positive gymnastics movement, we follow research and trends from sports journals and industry trends to ensure all decisions we make are ones that positively support gymnasts to be their best in the sport but most importantly as people beyond gymnastics. The latest research suggests that gymnasts who are more successful in our sport and with a higher quality of overall health later in life didn’t specialise in one sport until the age of 12 and trained no more hours per week than their age (plus 2). We believe that by making Development League higher in skill level will enable gymnasts to keep a healthy balance of participation in all sports until they compete at the general age of 10 years old or above where the hours of training required to meet the skill level in Development League match the suggested hours and balance required for optimal health. We have developed a programming guide (Pre Leagues Guide) for clubs to ensure they can prepare their gymnasts for Development League.
  • Does it matter who we are affiliated with?
    No, you can join AGC regardless of where your club chooses to affiliate. As a private company, we have our own insurance that covers you when attending our events. Most importantly we exist to grow the opportunities for athletes and raise the profile of gymnastics in Australia.
  • How do I become a Pro?
    Paid Pro League gymnasts are selected based on skill and positive role model qualities that represent our positive gymnastics movement. We select Pros at the beginning of each year through a try out process and via judge scouting from Rep League throughout the season.
  • Why is the manual so broad?
    Our manual is designed for progression, the bonus skills are intended to allow individual athletes to compete to their strengths and challenge themselves to achieve steps towards the next league all during competition season. We are happy to support clubs with programming recommendations more specifically, just let us know.
  • Are your competitions suitable for competitive athletes?
    Our competitions are suitable for the majority of gymnasts training anywhere between 5-15 hours a week as long as they meet skill requirements in the league they compete in.
  • What athletes are our competitions aimed at?
    Our competitions are suited to the majority of competitive gymnasts. Gymnasts who are not eligible for AGC are those selected on State or National teams representing their state or Australia.
  • How do your competitions work?
    The competition is split into 2 parts: warm-up and competition. We start with a 15-minute general warm-up then move to a group apparatus warm-up, finishing on your first competition apparatus. Gymnasts then march onto the competition floor, presenting each club to the spectators and then get straight into competition routines. Gymnasts can have additional warm-up touches at apparatus in Club League and above if doing high-level skills such as salto Vault, skills with flight on Bars and Beam or twisting on Floor.
  • How long do competitions run for?
    Competitions run for no more than 2 hours, double apparatus sessions can run up to 2.5 hours
  • How does scoring work?
    We have developed our own software which makes scoring easy to follow and highlights the amazing gymnasts at competitions. Scoring is out of 10 and is made up of composition requirements, bonuses and wow points. Fans can follow scores on the TV’s at the competition and on their phone on the app.
  • When do we know what time we’re competing?
    Work orders are released a month before the competition date or as soon as we can. These are sent to clubs to release to members.
  • Do we offer leagues lower than Development League at competitions?
    No, our purpose is to keep more gymnasts in our sport for longer and provide competitions for them at an age that supports them socially, mentally and physically without limiting their potential. We know we can do this by starting them competing from 9-10 years old. We have developed a programming guide (Pre Leagues Guide) for clubs to ensure they can prepare their gymnasts for Development League.
  • Do I need to provide judges for competitions?
    No. We provide all judges, so all you need to worry about is supporting your athletes to be their best.
  • Are gymnasts and coaches insured at your events?
    Yes, there is no sanctioning needed for our events as we are a private company with our own insurance that covers gymnasts and coaches when they attend our events.
  • Do gymnasts need to qualify for State or National Championships?
    No, everyone is welcome to enter into States and Nationals. Gymnasts will be put in a division based on their average score throughout the season to give them the best opportunity to place. If a gymnast is entered in a State or National competition without competing in any round prior they will be automatically entered into Division 1.
