The Cooroy Gymnastics Club has been undergoing a process of upgrades and equipment renewals over the past 18 months, including, a completely new complex layout to maximise usability.
This week saw the apex of the apparatus replacements with a new international standard competition floor area. The new floor area was funded under a grant from the Queensland Government’s, “get in the game” program.
The Queensland Government provided $59,743 to Cooroy Gymnastics Club to upgrade existing flooring to support gymnastics at Cooroy to increase Queenslanders participation in sport and recreation activities.
The new competition standard floor area is larger and is fully sprung to facilitate the growth in our competitive program. The high standard of equipment is enabling gymnasts to perform higher level skills. The new Spieth competition floor is the same floor used at World Championships and the Olympic competition.
The floor installation has been timely as Cooroy has two competitors competing in the Queensland Senior State Championships in Brisbane from Friday April 7th until Monday April 10th. Kyle McCartney, level 10 and Finlay Jones, level 7 will use the new floor to develop new and improved skills on floor including layout twisting elements.
