Sports and Recreation

Sport and recreational activities at PCYC Hervey Bay

Gymnastics/KinderGym

We believe that gymnastics is amongst the best Physical Education a person can receive.  We know that gymnastics is the foundation for all human movement; and by extension; for other sports.  Programs are progressive allowing for advancement through the skill syllabus at the students own pace.  Our program is a seamless pathway through to any level of gymnastic participation.

Our Recreational program follows a state-wide delivered syllabus, so gymnasts can change class and location if required, while continuing to receive a consistent quality teaching program.  All our coaches are accredited, and our syllabus has been specially developed to provide a structured learning program in a non-competitive environment. At every level our classes are designed to be fun, educational and improve movement skills for life.

Our KinderPlay 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.

KinderPlay 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.

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

Boxing

Boxing continues to hold an important place in PCYC Queensland’s history as our foundation offering at PCYC Lang Park, our first official club in 1948. 70 years on, boxing remains one of our most popular activities, with many of our Gym+Fitness centres now also offering boxercise and boxfit classes.
