The Delta Aspire Performance Program caters for high level National and International gymnastics. Gymnasts selected into this level of the program aspire to represent their state and country at Level 10 and International competition. As part of this program girls compete in the ALP Level 7 – 10 divisions along with Future, Junior and Senior International Competition. With a focus on mastering high level skills, exceptional strength and conditioning and an emphasis on goal setting and teamwork, gymnasts are equipped with the skills to be the best they can be – in the gym, at school and in their future endeavours!
At Delta we believe that it is not only what we do – but the way we do it. Our Core Values are what guide our decision making and unite our entire team. Click Here to read more about our Core Values.
We are so proud of the incredible leaders we have at all levels, who foster these values and demonstrate them in and outside of the gym. We thought we would share a little more about our highest level athletes for you to get to know and so you continue following their journey.
