Special Olympics Athlete Membership Waived

Gymnastics Australia and Gymnastics Queensland waive the Annual Gymnastics registration fee for Special Olympics athletes. In order to have the fee waived, the club must input the Special Olympic registration number in Gymnastics Online. This provides evidence that they are a registered Special Olympics athlete and therefore covered by the Special Olympics Australia (SOA) insurance. 

In Gymnastics Online, under the athlete's demographic profile, there is a SOA tick box. Here you will also find the field to input the SOA Membership Number.
If you have any further questions on this profile, please email Toni Cooke (tcooke@gymqld.org.au).

Upcoming Intermediate Coaches Courses

21 October  KG Intermediate Coaching Course (CQ) 

See the GQ Education Calendar for more details. Application Forms  for Judges Courses are located on the Gymnastics Queensland website. Enrolments for Coaches Courses are processed via the Learning Management System (LMS). All Application/Enrolments received after the closing date incur a 25% late fee.

Will you join GQ in celebrating our seniors?

We want you to join us in celebrating Seniors Week. Queensland Seniors will be celebrated from 18-26 August. The aim of this week is to facilitate community participation and activity by older people, improve community attitudes towards ageing and celebrate the valuable contributions older people make to our society.

Gymnastics Queensland will be celebrating the seniors of our community through hosting exercise classes across various and exciting locations. These classes will take place in and around Brisbane for each day of the week long celebration.

You can get involved by showing GQ how you’re celebrating Seniors Week through your Move for Life classes. If you happen to run a Move for Life class throughout Seniors Week then grab out your phone and snap and video the excitement!
 
Upload these videos and snaps to your Instagram page and be sure to tag @gymqld and use the following hashtags #seniorsweek #celebratingourseniors #fitnessatanyage #gymqld. Gymnastic Queensland will receive a notification that you’ve mentioned us in a post and we will share your post on to Gymnastics Queensland Instagram page while also giving your club a shout out.
 
If you are taking videos, be sure to hold your phone vertically. Instagram prefers videos in this format.
 
If you would like any more information on how your club can be involved in Seniors Week or any questions regarding Instagram, please get in contact Jacinta at marketing@gymqld.org.au or 07 3036 5619.
