Junior Coach Education Session

Today some of our junior coaches met up with our senior coaching staff for the second instalment in a series of educational sessions aimed at improving their awareness of technical information and helping them to develop their coaching skills. This is part of our junior coach mentor program and we hope that this will assist them in their role at the Youth Club and will help guide them as they progress through the Gymnastics Australia accreditation process.

National Stream State Trial 2 – 2018

Congratulations to our National Stream athletes who competed in yesterday’s State Trial 2. It was a long day for all with the competition stretching over 10 straight hours so we would like to use this opportunity to say a special thank you to our volunteer coaches, judges and spotters, without whom these competitions cannot go ahead. Being a small club we are always struggling for numbers so we are immensely grateful for the continued support of our members who show up time and time again to lend a hand and support their club.

Two of our athletes have now qualified for the State Team in at least 2 events. They will now be working hard in the lead up to their next event. Our National Stream athletes will be back in action at the end of April for State Championships.

Return To Training – Term 1 2018

Welcome back to Miranda RSL Youth Club for 2018, we hope you have had a wonderful break.

Regular classes for Term 1 2018 resume on Tuesday the 30th January and finish on Thursday the 12th of April. There are a number of public holidays during the term that will affect the number of training weeks for some classes. Classes do not run on public holidays and this will be reflected in your term fees.

It is very important that you pay your fees on time. You must pay your Term Fee and Annual Registration Fee by the second week of term or your position in the class will be forfeited. If you have any issues meeting this requirement, please speak with Mr Bull so we can assist you.

We have also added a 2018 Events Calendar to our Activities pages. Located at the bottom of the page, these schedules list all upcoming events for your relevant activity. You can view our 2018 Karate events list here and our 2018 Trampoline events list here.

We look forward to having you back for another great year at Miranda RSL Youth Club.
