Five years on and still go­ing strong

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE | LOCAL LIFE -

YMCA Caloun­dra has cel­e­brated their fifth an­niver­sary at their reg­u­lar Term One event.

The YMCA cen­tre started in March 2014 as a shared ac­tiv­ity in 80sqm of a com­mu­nity hall for five hours per week.

Now the full-time cen­tre has ex­panded to two build­ings, with a world-class gym­nas­tics hall of 800sqm.

The Y Cen­tre caters for fit­ness and gym­nas­tics for one-year-old through to 90 years old, and has classes for adults, se­niors, masters and other recre­ations (mar­tial arts, skat­ing, dance).

“YMCA Caloun­dra grew from a lo­cal col­lab­o­ra­tion of found­ing staff, the Sun­shine Coast Re­gional Coun­cil and the Bris­bane YMCA. The Y’s ac­tiv­i­ties were a much-de­manded ad­di­tion to the wider Caloun­dra com­mu­nity, and the club grew to one of the largest mem­ber par­tic­i­pant sport and re­cre­ation clubs on the Coast,” YMCA pro­gram man­ager Trevor Dowdell said.

YMCA Caloun­dra foun­da­tion mem­bers Madisyn Top­ping, Olivia Ho­lak and Grace Koch were on hand to cut the cake for the 150 guests.
