In 2014 the GSA High Performance Program introduced clinics for State Development athletes. For most athletes, their journey will begin in a club program. Gymnastics SA recognises the importance of developing a strong network of clubs that are able to identify and cater for talented athletes within their programs.
State Development Clinics aim to:
- Provide technical development opportunities for coaches and foster sharing of best coaching practices between coaches (coaches will receive updating points for attending the clinic)
- Develop a cohesive community of coaches and gymnasts
- Identify and develop athletes towards State Team Representation in the future
