Term 4 is here and we can’t wait to finish off this year with a bang! Please be aware that our COVID Safe practices as listed in our Return to Training Plan are still in effect. Remember to bring a pair of clean socks and a pre-filled drink bottle with you to training and if you are unwell, stay at home!
Before attending the Youth Club, we also ask that you check the following list of locations from the NSW Government. If you or an immediate family member have been to any of the locations during the listed times, please do not come to training.
In Term 4 2020, we will be adding a dedicated Tumbling Class to our timetable. This one hour class will run on Thursday nights from 6pm and is suitable for athletes working at Level 2 and above (Proficient in Handstands, Cartwheels and Round Offs).
This class is perfect for anyone wishing to take their tumbling to the next level including gymnasts, dancers and cheerleaders. Athletes in this class will follow a specialised strength and conditioning program designed to prepare them for learning and performing advanced skills.
If you are interested in attending this class, please get in touch so we can secure your spot.
It’s been a busy few weeks for our Trampoline and Tumbling coaches.
First of all, we are delighted to welcome a new face onto our coaching team. Nate has been a member of our Competitive Program for a number of years and was awarded the Kara Miller Award for Encouragement in Trampoline in 2018. We are very grateful for all the effort Nate has put into our club over the last few years and hope he enjoys his new role as a junior coach.
We are also pleased to announce that four of our senior coaches have now completed their new accreditations as mentioned in a previous update. On the 30th of August, Rebecca and Emily attended PCYC Hornsby to attain their Intermediate Gymnastics For All coaching accreditation and yesterday Keelie and Sarah attended Shire Gymnastics in Kirrawee to attain their Intermediate KinderGym coaching accreditation.
KinderGym is a program that is specifically designed to assist children aged 0-5 develop fundamental life skills such as balance, co-ordination and rhythm in a safe, fun and engaging environment. With two of our coaches newly accredited, we are looking into the possibility of introducing a KinderGym program to replace our former Junior Jumpers class. If you would be interested in attending KinderGym at Miranda RSL Youth Club, please get in touch.
We would like to thank each and everyone of our coaches who put countless hours into professional development, accreditations and certifications so that we can provide the best possible programs for our members.
Have a safe and happy holidays and we look forward to seeing you back at the Youth Club on the 12th of October for the start of Term 4!

Update as of 24th of September 2020: The 10km participation will be lifted on the 26th of September. Please see the most recent news post for more information.
In response to the latest NSW Health Advice for Sport and Recreation, Gymnastics NSW will be implementing a new 10km participation boundary for club members. This means that Trampoline and Tumbling athletes must now live within 10km of the Youth Club in order to continue to participate in our program. This change will come into effect from the 28th of August 2020. Please note this restriction does not apply to school classes or students in our Karate Program.
If you live outside the boundary and do not have another Gymnastics NSW club with a Trampoline and Tumbling program in your area, you will still be eligible to attend our club under the specialised training rule. As we are the only Trampoline and Tumbling program in the South East region, none of our members will be effected at this stage. This may change if the NSW situation worsens.
