The Calisthenics Skills Program is designed to allow girls to develop fitness, flexibility, co-ordination, rhythm and musicality. It encourages correct deportment and poise and at the same time promotes self-esteem and self-discipline. Pupils are examined on a test or a grade suitable to their age.
For pupils wishing to participate in solos, duos or gracefuls for 2020, they must have attained specific levels within Calisthenics Skills.
Girls looking to participate in our Cadet Coaching Program need to be actively participating in calisthenics skills and have achieved Grade 1 prior to commencing as a Class Demonstrator and Grade 2 to be a Cadet.
Classes for Pupil Skills are held once a week during Term 4 on either a Monday or Thursday afternoon at either Mountain Creek Primary School or Mountain Creek High School. Training will commence the 23rd/26th September and times will be confirmed when numbers for each test are finalised.

STEP 3: Following receipt of your application form & deposit you will be emailed a copy of the syllabus and will be given details of how to access the digital media on line through the Calisthenics Federation Website. It is an expectation that all pupils will have viewed their test /or grade material online and are familiar with the content before attending classes. At classes, pupils train with others in the same test or grade and progress through the syllabus. Pupils will find it difficult to produce a passing grade if they have not put the time in at home.
