Solo, Duo, Graceful - 2024 Application Form
We are now taking expressions of interest for the 2024 Solo, Duo and Graceful (SDG) Season.
Applications close Sunday the 22nd of October 2023.
To register your interest in a SDGs, the following applies:
Members must be up to date with relevant Calisthenics Pupil Skills; and
Members must compete in all team competitions in 2024; and
Members must be fully financial to participate in SDGs; and
Members must be a committed and active team member to participate in SDGs; and
Members must perform at our Mid-Year SDG Concert.
Please note, by completing the expression of interest it does not guarantee that a Coach will be available. Calisthenics Buderim committee and coaches will do our best to ensure all first preferences are filled, second preferences will be filled based on availability
To ensure ALL Calisthenics Buderim members have the opportunity to participate in SDGs for 2024, the number of items members will be allowed to register for has been capped to the following:
Sub-Juniors: 1x SDG item
Juniors & Inters: 2x SDG items
This decision has been made by the executive committee due to limited coaching availability in 2024. This decision is final and applies to ALL registered Calisthenics Buderim members regardless of whether they engage an external coach or not.
Coaching availability is limited, a pupil is not guaranteed to be allocated the same coach as previous years or the same coach for multiple items, however all of our lovely coaches are committed to giving every pupil a great experience. Learning from different coaches is a fantastic way to broaden your skill set. Further to this all SDGs require a registered and qualified Level 1 coach to enter competitions.
Please note that some of our wonderful coaches are located on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast Areas, this may require travel from pupils to training venues, your coach will discuss a reasonable training timetable with you.
Costs for SDGs are additional to Team Term Fees and include a payment due to your COACH, this will be confirmed by your coach prior to the commencement of the season, some costs to consider include:
Hall Hire Fees - Hall hire costs vary and are dependent on training venue. Typically this costs $15.00 - $50.00 per item/class, your coach will confirm this amount.
Coaching Fees - Coaches will set coaching fees. Typically this costs $20.00 - $30.00 per item/class, your coach will confirm this amount.
DLP and Choreography Fees - Coaches will set DLP and Choreography Fees. Typically this costs $100.00+ per item, your coach will confirm this amount.
Competition Entry Fees – To enter any competition, participants will need to register and pay online to the association hosting the competition. Typically this costs $100.00+ per item (per competition). Your coach will be able to assist you in the registration process.
