Gymnastics NSW (GNSW) is the State governing body for gymnastics. Established in 1948, Gymnastics NSW's mission is to promote, develop and grow gymnastics for the enjoyment of all. In addition, GNSW Men's High Performance Centre runs its high performance program aiming to develop international elite gymnasts from SGAC.
Encompassing eight gymsports being the Olympic disciplines of Women’s and Men’s Artistic, Rhythmic and Trampoline Gymnastics, as well as Aerobic Gymnastics, Acrobatic Gymnastics and Gymnastics for All, gymnastics provides opportunities for all Australians. With the third highest female membership base of organised sport within Australia, gymnastics continues to provide children of all ages the opportunity to learn to move and move well. From KinderGym programs which teach children to master the Fundamental Movement Skills through to our high performance programs and Olympic Medal goals, gymnastics stretches the entire sporting landscape.
Gymnastics NSW has more than 53,000 registered athlete members. The organisation has had year-on-year athlete membership growth for 13 years in a row, with 93 per cent of the athlete members under the age of 12 (42 per cent are under the age of five) and 75 per cent of the membership is female. Gymnastics programs are delivered in more than 190 clubs across NSW.
The GNSW Men’s High Performance Centre (NSW HPC) is a high performance program dedicated to developing international elite gymnasts. Set up by Gymnastics NSW (GNSW) and supported by The NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS), Sydney Gymnastics Centre (SGAC) and Gymnastics Australia (GA), it is designed and operated specifically for men’s gymnastics. Our objectives are to identify and develop gymnasts through the high performance pathway with athletes coming from across New South Wales for intensive training under an expert team of coaches anywhere from 4 – 30 hours per week.
