The 2020 National Clubs Virtual Carnival in partnership with Kayo – a two week virtual carnival designed to celebrate the four Fs of Gymnastics – fun, friendship fitness, fundamental movement and did we say FUN! 

From 20 September – 4 October, Gymnastics Australia’s social media will become the home of our carnival and we want you and your members to get involved. 

Create a short video (no longer than 90 second video) that encapsulates the four Fs. From there, a selection panel will pick the best 16 entries where YOU can help decide the winner. 

Finalists will be pitted against each other on GA’s social media, with the winner of each battle moving to the next round until we have one winner. 

There’s a catch! 

As we are all not back in the gym yet, we want you to promote non-GymSport specific gymnastics skills, where apparatus is not required. Don't forget to keep in mind the training at home guidelines, you can find these here. This is your time to be creative; to think outside the box.

How you can get involved
• Create a video (no longer than 90 seconds) that recognises what the four Fs mean to your club
• Seek all relevant permission from participants in your video
• Submit your video to GA
• If shortlisted, let your members know and get voting!

Entries are now open and will close at 11:59pm (AEST) Tuesday, September 15. Hurry!

Submit your entry here!
