ANZAC Day reminder

Next Saturday is ANZAC Day. While we won’t be gathering for our traditional Dawn Service, there are still ways that you can commemorate the occasion at home.

At 6am on ANZAC Day, we ask you to stand in your driveway, on your balcony or in your living room to remember all those who have served and sacrificed. You can tune in to the Australian War Memorial commemorative service from 5:30am on the ABC.

Find out more about the RSL’s ANZAC Day 2020 initiative by visiting RSLNSW.org.au.

National Stream Competition Update

Yesterday, Gymnastics NSW and Gymnastics Australia announced the decision to cancel or postpone all events between now and July 1, 2020. This includes the Senior State Championships which were due to be held at the beginning of April and the Australian National Championships which would have been held during May in Melbourne. If you would like to read their statements, you may do so by following the links below.

Gymnastics NSW Statement – 17 March 2020

Gymnastics Australia statement regarding the 2020 Australian Championships

In light of this decision, we thought we would highlight the efforts of our only National Stream athlete this year, Deklyn D-G. 2020 was Deklyn’s first year in National Stream and he competed at both Trial events held earlier this year in the Nat5 group for under 13s. He had hoped to qualify for the State Team in Trampoline and Double Mini and attend Nationals. You can watch Deklyn’s Voluntary routine at the most recent Trial event below. Deklyn will now be re-focusing on skill development and set his sights on Nationals 2021.

To redeem your discount, please bring your voucher when paying your term fees.

Gym Clean Up

Over the past week, a number of our coaches have given up their time to help clean up the gym in preparation for classes resuming on the 28th of January. This year the gym was particularly dirty due to the extensive amount of dust and ash in the air over the summer holidays, blown into the gym through ageing plastic windows and faulty doors. We are currently in contact with the council and hope to have the windows and doors repaired by March to better protect our equipment from the elements.

The entire gym was covered in a thin layer of dust and ash.


Sweeping, vacuuming and mopping all done.

Display Day 2019

That’s a wrap on Display Day 2019!

Display Day is Miranda RSL Youth Club’s annual athlete showcase and presentation day featuring performances and demonstrations by a number of our recreational and competitive athletes as well as the presentation of our perpetual trophies.

Thank you to everyone who came along to support our athletes! We are especially grateful for the work of our incredible volunteers who helped to set up and pack down the gym, run the raffle and marshal the athletes. We could not run this event without you! For a glimpse into what it takes to set up the gym for an event like Display Day, check out the set up time-lapse below!
