Men’s Artistic Gymnastics is for boys and men of all ages. The six apparatus in MAG requires the skilful combination of flips, balance, stretch, spin and landings. Gymnasts are invited into this stream once the talent has been identified. If a parent believes their child has the talent for this stream, an assessment can be organised with the Program Supervisor.
Athletes progress through a levels-based program gradually increasing with skill difficulty. Emphasis is on execution of routines as cleanly as possible showing strength, control and flexibility. The Australian Levels Program has 10 levels with the foundation levels being level 1 and 2.
At NGSC we currently offer a level 1 class training 1.5 hours per week, a level 2 class training 2 hours a week and a level 3 to 5 class training 3 hours per week.
There are six competitive apparatus in Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG):
Here at Nunawading Gymnastics and Sports Club, we offer MAG Development which feeds into National MAG program Levels 1 – 7.
The primary aim of the National program is to produce athletes that are capable of qualifying for the Victorian Team to compete at the National Championships and potentially to make the Open Levels Tour as a level 9 or 10 athlete.
