Women's artistic gymnastics
Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) Women's Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) is a joint venture between QAS, Gymnastics Queensland and Gymnastics Australia. It involves both an elite level and development program.
QAS Gymnastics involves a two-tiered structure consisting of the QAS Scholarship Squad which is directly supported by the QAS and the underpinning QAS Development Squad which is administered by Gymnastics Queensland.
Female international level gymnasts are required to reach competitive maturation by the age of approximately 16 years. The focus of the QAS Squad is to prepare athletes, when they have reached this maturation stage, for competition at the state, national and international levels. In this capacity the QAS plays a major role in developing athletes for international competitions such as World Championships, Commonwealth and Olympic Games.
The Development Program aims to identify young gymnasts who show potential and develop them to reach their competitive maturation for selection onto national teams at the junior and senior levels.
