Level 4 State Championships

Congratulations to our Artistic Gymnasts who competed at the Level 4 State Championships 10–11 September held at Sydney Gymnastic and Aquatic Centre (SGAC). Our teams did extremely well taking out a number of awards. 

Special mention goes to our Level 4 Mixed Team which included PLC Sydney gymnasts, Sophia Armenis (Year 6) and Stella Koulos (Year 4) who finished 3rd in the All Around and 2nd on Bars and Beam. This was an incredible result as there were 29 teams in the competition.

Well done gymnasts!

Artistic State Clubs

Congratulations to our Level 5, 6 and 7 gymnasts who competed in the State Clubs competition held at SGAC. This was the first time that PLC Sydney has been able to field teams in level 5,6 and 7 in many years. Results were as follows:

  • Level 5 Mixed - 10th All around
  • Level 5 Junior - 3rd All Around
  • Level 6 Mixed Ages - 8th All Around
  • Level 7 - 9th All Around

We’re looking forward to more great results in the future. 

National Clubs

Congratulations to our PLC Sydney gymnasts who competed in the National Clubs held in Bendigo from 14–21 September 2016. Our team consisted of level 5, 6 and 7 gymnasts and was the first time any of the girls had competed in a National event. They were very nervous however, all managed to do well on day 1 of the competition and were selected to compete in day 2 of the competition. The event was a great opportunity for the girls to compete at National level and was great practice to be away from home in a squad environment. It wasn’t all work and no play. We did a little site seeing along the way. We explored a gold mine, learnt some pottery wheel techniques, visited the Science Museum and the Chinese Heritage Museum, which is home to the largest imperial dragon. All in all, it was a wonderful experience.
