Hi, my name is Traci Spalding and I am the Calisthenics coach at Koala Gymnastics. I am 53 years old and have been competing and coaching calisthenics for over 40 years. I began my calisthenics journey at Maroondah Calisthenics Club when I was 7 years old. I competed with Maroondah till I was 17 years old, winning many state titles with my teammates. My family then moved to Kilsyth and I changed clubs, to Nova Academy of Calisthenics as a foundation member. During the 10 plus years I competed with Nova I was again lucky enough to come away with many State and Royal South Street titles. While at Nova I began my coaching career under the guidance of Carolyn Firth. Gaining my Level 1 coaching accreditation in 1993. Since gaining my accreditation I have taught all age groups from 3 years to masters as well as many solos. Calisthenics is known as the “Artistic” sport and is made up of different disciplines/routines according to age and grading. Depending on grading girls and boys from 3 years may compete in 6 team items from Free Exercise, Rod Exercises, Club Swinging, Figure March, Aesthetics, Rhymical Aesthetics, Character Dance, Song and Action, Song and Dance and Calisthenic Revue. There is also a yearly solo season where all ages can complete in a Physical solo, a Graceful solo or a Calisthenic duo. I love sharing my passion of performing and Calisthenics and can’t wait to share it with the Koala Family. If you see me around the gym please introduce yourself and say hello.
