WHAT TYPE OF PHYSIE COMPETITIONS ARE THERE AND DO I HAVE TO COMPETE?
There are two types of BJP Physie competitions. The first is team-based with 8 girls or ladies in one team performing routines together and the second is called Champion Girl, where girls pursue their individual goals. There are various competitions throughout the year, with club, interclub, regional, state and finally national competitions. Every year, the National Championships are held at the Sydney Opera House where girls from all over Australia compete for the title of Senior Grand Champion. Competitions are completely optional, though they are a great way to build confidence and meet other Physie girls from all over Australia! It’s a wonderful experience designed to encourage girls to become comfortable performing in a safe, positive environment.
