Gymnastics Program

The Gippsland Sports Academy, with the endorsement of Gymnastics Victoria, is supporting local gymnasts to reach their full potential through the establishment of a new program that will be led by high performance coaches Tracey Penaluna and Alistair Edgar.

Sixty aspiring Gippsland gymnasts were selected for the 2017-18 program. The program included intensive training clinics run by specialist gymnastics coaches and high performance service providers.

The program has been designed to enhance the training and competition opportunities currently available to Gippsland gymnasts and to help them achieve success at State and National competitions.
