The skills required are at a higher level than the recreational programs and the children are required to compete in compulsory competitions in the Australian National or State Level Streams.

Club uniform is required to be purchased at this level.

Levels 1-3 compete on a team basis where as Level 4 and above compete on an individual as well as team basis,
Commitment to training and a willingness to achieve is required to improve and progress through these levels.

Sunbury has a High Performance Satellite program to spot potential Elite gymnasts.

The Head Coach also selects gymnasts to train in beginner classes where she feels the gymnast show some potential but who is not yet up to Squad level. Gymnasts train in these classes learning more advanced skills than recreational gymnasts and if they make the grade they will move into the advanced squad classes. Gymnasts may stay in these classes for a couple of years depending on their development.
