Sport and recreational activities at PCYC Nerang


Youth Basketball

Learn Basketball fundamentals in a structured and fun environment. Skills consist of ball handling, dribbling, passing, defence and footwork.

Celtics Basketball

Our mini-ball program for children aged between 5 and 12 years of age is run by the great team at Celtics Basketball Club. At mini-ball we teach the children hand‑eye coordination through dribbling, passing, catching and shooting. They are also introduced to body movement fundamentals such as running, stopping, jumping and changing direction and use all these skills in a game situation.

Masters Basketball

Each week our group of masters get together for their social basketball session. The session includes warm up, drills and skills to get everyone going and a game to finish off. There are no maximum or minimum age requirements just the desire to get involved and have fun, use it or lose it as some say.

Boxing Tyro

Children are able to learn the skills and techniques of boxing, and work on improving their fitness levels. When ready they have the opportunity to compete in amateur bouts (only available to children 10 years and over). Boxing is not just about competing. Individuals develop skills, technique, improve fitness and self confidence. Equipment (boxing mitts) is provided for first timers, but regular attendees will need to purchase their own equipment.

Boxing Novice

Perhaps you did boxing as a kid, or you just want to take up the personal challenge to get fit or get in the ring. There is plenty to learn footwork, hand and body movements, defence and the mental side of the sport. All you need is mitts and wraps and you can start classes at any time.

Boxing Competition

This is for the competitive boxer and entry to this class is by invitation only through our head instructor.

Gym Fun

Gym Fun is back at PCYC Nerang – PCYC Gym Fun club’s primary objective is to provide high quality recreational gymnastics programs and events for children. Our classes are designed to improve each
student’s motor skills, coordination, physical confidence and self-esteem. In order to achieve this goal our instructors balance their classes with fun yet challenging exercises. We encourage our gymnasts to excel under all circumstances.
