The inaugural Men's Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) Team Future Advance Camp is soon to be held at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in Canberra from October 31 to November 4, 2016.

The camp targets a select group of athletes who have the potential to win medals for Australia at Benchmark Events (BME) in the future.  The design of the training camp includes training, athlete education and both group and individual meetings to construct the athletes Individual Performance Plans (IPPs).

The following gymnasts have been invited to attend the inaugural MAG Team Future Advance Camp:

To accept their invitation we have asked gymnasts to update us on their skill progress using Pathways online tool, the Virtual Athlete Tracker (VAT).  The VAT enables Gymnastics Australia to stay in touch with athlete’s from all over the country and monitor their progress across a skill curriculum.

We are looking forward to all athletes to attending and providing a great start to the Team Future Advance concept in Men’s Artistic Gymnastics.
