Sport and recreational activities at PCYC Gold Coast

Tiny Tots

The goal of our classes is to help with the growth and development of each and every child, ages 1 -5yrs.  Each class will be structured to include parent supervision and participation at all times, in a way best to benefit your child through active dance and movement. We look forward to seeing the smiles and the laughter from your little ones faces as they have fun using different sized balls, boxes, streamers, hoops, musical toys and other equipment all necessary skills in early childhood.  This will help to encourage reaching, stretching, crawling and moving, allowing the children to develop their gross and fine motor skills and body awareness.

It is our aim to offer a memorable experience every time a child attends our facility, as well as continue a quality of service.  Active play is the best way for kids to be physically active.

Boxing

Boxing demonstrates assurance in addition to developing physical fitness; training instils confidence, motivation and especially self-discipline. First boxing guides risk, that actions do have outcomes. This all takes place in an administered, designed environment with rigorous protection checks in place. Compare that to the unconfined roughness of some streets on a Saturday night. And boxing reaches out to the places that other sports don’t reach. Why? Boxing engages with young people on their own terms and understands that aggravation and aggressiveness that is so often the characteristic of teenage years.

PCYC Gold Coast Boxing team is a family orientated team building champions in and out of the ring. We compete regularly both amateur and professionally. We have produced state and national champions and both Coach Jay and Connie are very passionate about the sport and giving all athletes the chance to reach their goals. If you want to start your journey head on in!

Boxing – Novice (13yrs to Adult)

Savate

Savate, also known as boxe française or French boxing is a French combat sport that uses the hands and feet as weapons combining elements of English boxing with graceful and tactical base kicking techniques, which makes it popular with men, women and teenagers. Savate is a French word for “old shoe or boot” and Savate practitioners always wear specially designed boots when training or competing, in fact only the boot can be used to touch your partner (and not the shin) when engaging in Savate.

Savate encompasses not only the competition sport but also a self-defence module called Savate- defense along with Savate weaponry which includes La canne (French cane fencing/fighting) and Savate Forme (a type of Savate boxercise). Today Savate is practised all over the world from Australia to the US and from Finland to Britain, with well over 32 countries actively practicing Savate. The International Savate Federation (FIS) is the official worldwide ruling body of the art.

Savate has been taught at the Gold Coast PCYC since 1988 by Savate Silver Glove coach Craig Gemeiner. Craig currently acts as the Australian representative for the International Savate Federation (FIS). The PCYC Savate club has produced champions at state, national and international level Savate competitions.

Gymnastics/KinderGym

KinderGym

Our KinderGym program is a movement-based learning experience for children under five years and their parents or caregivers.  Educational research tells us that children learn best through exploring and discovering their abilities via targeted physical activity.

KinderGym classes are structured sessions, which introduce basic skills and strength building activities.  Our program is designed to inspire motor milestone development, boost confidence and cognitive development and provides a platform for social interaction.

KinderGym provides a safe environment for children to develop physical literacy in a fun playful way
