With strength

Matamata Chronicle - - Welcome To Matamata -

Most of the coaches at Mata­mata Gym Club are ‘‘just mums and dads’’.

‘‘Some of our coaches have a vast gym ex­pe­ri­ence and some don’t, so we of­fer coach­ing nights so we’re fur­ther­ing their skills and mak­ing sure ev­ery­thing is safe,’’ Emma says.

The club is sim­ply a group of peo­ple get­ting to­gether to run some­thing for the chil­dren – they all do it vol­un­tar­ily.

Chil­dren are split up into age and abil­ity groups, and take part in var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing each of the ses­sions.

Mata­mata Gym Club pres­i­dent is Karen Ni­cholls.

Club nights are held on Tues­days 5.30pm-7pm dur­ing term time at Headon Sta­dium on West­ern St.

Those tak­ing part must be aged 5 from May 1.

Cost is $65 for two terms.
