State Team Uniform

2023 is the final year of this uniform as Adidas will cease manufacturing this style of uniform from April 2023. Due to this, some sizes may be unavailable at the time of ordering therefore, an alternative size will be provided. 

Where applicable, compulsory uniform items will be provided to all coaches and management staff by Gymnastics WA. Optional items can be ordered by coaches and management staff at the cost to the individual. 

In 2023, if a selected coach already has the compulsory uniform items from a team in 2022, Gymnastics WA will provide one additional polo rather than a full tracksuit. 

A catalogue of uniform can be found below.

After the WA Team is selected, successful coaches and management staff will order their compulsory uniform items directly with Gymnastics WA. Uniforms will then be collected from Gymnastics WA at an appropriate time (i.e. State Team training).
