Solo, Duo, Graceful - 2020 Application Form
We are now taking expressions of interest for the 2020 Solo, Duo and Graceful (SDG) Season.
Applications close Sunday the 6th of October 2019.
To participate in a SDG in 2020, members must have passed relevant Calisthenics Skills Exams* and must compete in all team competitions in 2020. SDGs are additional to team work. Girls participate in these items to improve technique, confidence, flexibility and to experience performing on stage in a solo or duo environment.
*Tinies wishing to participate in solos in 2020 are not required to complete the Calisthenics Skills Exams, instead they must have competed in Tinies 2019.
In 2020 SDG training is planned to be on Thursdays and Fridays only due to hall availability and coaching commitments.

Should you choose to engage a coach outside of the Calisthenics Buderim Coaching Team, you are still required to submit this form and agree to all club rules and regulations regarding solos.
SDGs are a privilege and a reward, it is a requirement of members to ensure they continue to give 100% in team work. Failure to do so may result in the withdrawal of SDG.
All SDG participants must compete in team items at ALL competitions in 2020 to apply for a SDG.
All outstanding fees from 2019, must be paid prior to applying to do a Solo, Duo or Graceful in 2020, unless an agreed payment plan is in place.
Expression of interest does not mean that you are guarenteed all requested SDG items, SDGs will be allocated based on coaching availability. Calisthenics Buderim aim to ensure all applicants are allocated at least one of the requested items at minimum.
If your child does not pass pupil skills exams, they will be inelligble to participate in SDGs in 2020.
