2. Gymnastics, Strength and Conditioning Program 

At Ascot Park Primary School, we offer a Gymnastics Strength and Conditioning (GSC) Program for internal and external students. Girls and boys of all levels can trial for our GSC programs and, if successful, will be selected into the appropriate skill levelled program; advanced, intermediate or development. There are no more than 10 in a training group to allow individualised planning and coaching for each athlete.

All programs are run by highly qualified and professional coaches who are expected to plan and implement high-level programs, aligned to the Australian Curriculum and designed to support progression through the Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Australian Levels Programs.
Trainings are run by Andrew Cordery twice a week; Tuesday and Thursday mornings 7 – 8:30am.
