Gym­nas­tics club to host su­per sports

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

GYM­NASTS from the Moss­man and District Gym­nas­tics Club are wel­com­ing new stu­dents at the Su­per Sports Day pro­mo­tion event next month.

The gym­nasts will be putting on a dis­play along with a “come and try” ac­tiv­ity at the Moss­man Indoor Sports Cen­tre on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 6.

The Moss­man and District Gym­nasts Club are a grow­ing, not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion who plays an ac­tive role in the com­mu­nity in its ef­forts to pro­mote a healthy en­vi­ron­ment to chil­dren.

Spokes­woman Erin Frizelle en­cour­ages both boys and girls to sign up for 2011.

“Fit­ness, flex­i­bil­ity, strength, en­durance and self es­teem are the re­wards to be ob­tained by be­com­ing a mem­ber of this club,” she said.

“Gym­nasts are also given reg­u­lar op­por­tu­ni­ties to com­pete at var­i­ous com­pe­ti­tions through­out the re­gion, whilst also be­ing trained to per­form at com­mu­nity events.”

Chil­dren can en­rol as young as one to four years in the pop­u­lar ’Kin­der­gym’ pro­gram be­fore reach­ing gen­eral gym com­pet­ing lev­els in the Men’s and Women’s Artis­tic Gym­nas­tic com­pe­ti­tions.

Last year the club par­tic­i­pated in four com­pe­ti­tions in Ather­ton and Ma­reeba along with the Queens­land State Cham­pi­onship in Bris­bane.

“In Bris­bane one of our gym­nasts placed fifth over­all with the re­gional team, an in­tr­a­club com­pe­ti­tion,” she said.

Gym­nasts also had a cart­wheel-athon fundraiser, dis­plays at the Port Dou­glas Pri­mary School and per­formed at the Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre’s 21st birth­day cel­e­bra­tions.

“Their fi­nal Christ­mas Dis­play and Pre­sen­ta­tion Night was spec­tac­u­lar, with ac­ro­bat­ics, cos­tume, dance, mu­sic, and ap­pa­ra­tus demon­stra­tions,” Mrs Frizelle said.

“It was an en­tire, one hour pro­duc­tion, of non-stop en­ter­tain­ment for the whole com­mu­nity to en­joy.”

Par­ents should be quick to en­rol their chil­dren early to se­cure a place in the classes and will be able to reg­is­ter on Satur­day, Jan­uary 29, from 9:00am to 11:00am at the Moss­man Indoor Sports Cen­tre, Front Street, op­po­site Wool­worths.

Boys are par­tic­u­larly en­cour­aged to en­rol this year as the club will be ex­tend­ing their boys pro­gram, giv­ing the MAG Lev­els 1 to 3 stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in our con­di­tion­ing pro­gram on Tues­days.
