Help support our athletes at the World Age Group Championships & World Championships

Please help support our athletes!

12 incredible athletes will be representing SGAC in the World Age Group Championships and World Championships in Antwerp, Beligum. 

SGC 12 Acrobats World Championships

Sydney Gymnastics and Aquatic Centre (SGAC) is proud to announce that an astonishing 12 of our Acrobatic athletes have been selected to represent Australia at the World Age Group Championships and World Championships in Antwerp from 4th-15th April 2018. The world’s best acrobatic gymnasts will compete for the world titles in the Antwerp Lotto Arena and SGAC would like your support to help get our amazing SGAC athletes there.

These athletes were born and raised in Greater Western Sydney and currently train 25 hours a week at SGAC, some athletes juggling HSC, a job and University amongst all this. Most of these athletes have been training in Gymnastics from as young as five years old, it has been their dream to represent their country, now this dream has become a reality.

Many of these athletes have had to overcome major setbacks in their gymnastics career such as major injuries, Acrobatic partnerships breaking up and having to form new groups/partnerships, the financial strain and difficulties for their parents and having to overcome this as a family. And they still continue to fight to keep their dream alive and achieve their personal best in the hope they represent and do Australia proud.

Like most sports at an elite level, costs for parents can be quite substantial, especially in today’s economic environment. Their training fees alone cost parents in excess of $8000 per year. To support their international experience and set them up for success before the world event, this month these amazing athletes will also be attending 2nd International Vegas Acro Cup in Las Vegas, representing their club and Australia at an additional cost of $2500. The Belgium competition alone will set the parents back another $4500 and the total cost is $54,000 for all athletes to attend the World Championship event.

Please help us raise as much money as possible to get these talented athletes to Belgium. All donations large or small will go directly to the athletes and would be greatly appreciated.
