What type of Physie competitions are there and do I have to compete?
There are two types of BJP Physie competitions. The first is Teams, with 8 girls or ladies in one team performing routines together aiming for sychronisation in timing and formations. 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 in Sydney, where Physie girls all over Australia come to compete with the best of the best. 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.
