2019 WAG Gymsport Regulations

The WAG Gymsport Regulations for 2019 have been completed and are available here.  A postal vote of the WAG Technical Members is required for approval of these Regulations.  The changes to the Regulations have been highlighted as follows:

  • Changes highlighted in pink are technical changes and therefore require approval from the WAG SPTA.  This will occur through a postal vote.  The postal voting form is available here and needs to be returned by 5pm Friday 25th January
  • Changes highlighted in blue are not specific technical changes.  These changes are: clarifications for ease of understanding; changes in Gymnastics Australia’s rules & regulations; or brought about because of changes in Gymnastics Queensland’s Events Policies or By-Laws.
If you have any questions in regards to the Regulations, please email or call Trisha Hade on 0418 874 744.
