WHAT IS SPORT AEROBICS?

Sport Aerobics is the ability to perform continuous complex and high intensity movement patterns to music, which originate from traditional aerobic dance.

Students have the choice of participating solely in the weekly dance/fitness aerobics class or they may trial for a place in the RGS Sport Aerobics Team. Members of the representative team will attend additional training sessions each week.

SPORTS AEROBICS AS A CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITY IN 2017

An open day will be held on Tuesday, 27 February from 3.30pm - 4.30pm in the Theatre. All students are welcome to attend. 

Training will commence during Week 6 as follows:
Tuesdays 6.30am - 7.30am in the DMTA Dance Studio

After sampling several of these introductory sessions it will be necessary for your child to express an interest in whether they wish to participate in a competitive team for the State titles which are held in Brisbane in August. Please note that the teams for this event will be allocated based on experience and skill level in order to accommodate all students.

Students who decide to nominate for the State titles will be required to pay a deposit of $1000 towards these competitions at the time of enrolment. These funds will go towards securing flights and accommodation, purchase of representative leotard (if necessary) and School co-curricular shirt and booking fees for the first of these events. Additional costs will be billed for the State titles closer to the event.

Should students subsequently qualify for the National titles at State level, additional costs will also be incurred to travel to Brisbane to compete in this prestigious competition.

As a result of working towards the State titles students may be expected to attend additional sessions and fitness training.

Sports Aerobics is a growing sport that is dynamic and athletic and incorporates disciplines from both gymnastics and dancing. Your child will receive not only physical benefits, but the benefits that come from competitive team sports.
