In 2013 Gymnastics Australia (GA) focused on developing the degree of difficulty in athletes’ routines as part of its 2016 strategy, rather than targeting outright athlete performance at the 2013 world championships. Nevertheless, GA still set a high qualification standard for the world championship and as such only three athletes qualified. While the team did not achieve its Winning Edge performance targets at the championships, there is sufficient evidence to suggest the sport is making progress towards its Glasgow 2014 and Rio 2016 targets. There remains a need to ensure consistency of quality coaching, facilities and equipment in the sport’s training locations around the country.

GA is on track towards complying with the ASC’s mandatory governance principles. Key areas still to be addressed include the establishment of a nominations committee as well as achieving better gender balance and mix of skills on the board. The past 12 months has seen a significant improvement in GA’s planning, delivery and reporting.

GA developed a new strategic and sport development plan in 2013. LaunchPad continues to be the brand for GA’s junior programs and is a key area of focus in the coming year.
