About the project

Caitlin has been selected to represent Australia in the upcoming World Age Championships in April in Belgium in the Level 12 – 18 Acrobatic Gymnastics.

A lot of blood sweat and tears has gone into getting her there and she works extremely hard training 23+ hours per week, before and after school, and during school holidays, all whilst completing her senior years at high school, currently in year 12.

Whilst Caitlin is part of the Australia team there is NO government funding available and everything is paid for by the gymnasts and their parents.

The costs include a minimum of $5,000 per year for training, 2 – 4 leotards at $400 – $1,000 each and then there are many sessions at the physio to keep her going. This year is a different story altogether. The cost just for 1 athlete to attend the World Championships in Antwerp Belgium is approximately $4,500 for their travel and accommodation. On top of this there is the Australian team uniform cost of approximately $1,000 and this year there is also a mandatory international preparation competition being held in Las Vegas in the USA in February at an additional cost of $2,000 per athlete. She also attended a compulsory team training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in early January at a cost of $500.

Please help us support her to achieve her dream of representing Australia at the highest possible level as this sport is not yet an Olympic sport.
