We are pleased to announce that Brooke Davies from Astra Gymnastics has been selected as the sole member of the 2023 Aerobics Gymnastics National Squad.
We congratulation Brooke on her selection, and wish her all the best in the coming year.
The Aerobic Gymnastics (AER) National Squad is for athletes competing in senior international.
How is the squad put together?
Athletes are selected into the squad using performance criteria achieved at key events.
What is the difference between the International Stream and the National Squad?
The Aerobics International Stream includes all athletes from national development up to senior international, who have met criteria as set out in the 2023 Aerobics Handbook.
The national squad is for selected senior international athletes who have met the national squad criteria.
Does this mean athletes automatically make a tour team?
No. Being part of the squad means you are a targeted athlete, but depending on the competition, there may be other criteria to be met before a team is announced.
So what does part of the squad mean?
It means that you are a targeted senior international athlete and are eligible for selection to international performance events. As part of the national squad, you will be invited to attend squad meets/camps with other squad athletes and coaches. Performance and attitude at these sessions/camps will be taken into consideration when nominating and selecting for competitions.
