Sport and recreational activities at PCYC Redlands

Gymnastics

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 instructors are fully accredited and blue card holders. Our syllabus includes traditional and modern techniques including some Brazilian Jujitsu.

You will learn how to control conflict situations, how to defend yourself from any type of attack and how to defend from weapon attacks.

Tae Kwon Do
Tae Kwon Do is a free-fighting combat sport where an individual uses their hands and feet to repel an opponent. Tae kwon do literally means the “way of kicking and punching”. It consists of sharp, strong angular movements with free flowing circular movements to produce a balance of beauty and power. Teakwood’s trademark is the kicking techniques, which are both spectacular and difficult. All the moves are based on the defensive attitude, which was originally developed for self-protection.

Equally important to Tae Kwon Do in being a superior art of self-defence, it is also a mental discipline.

Children must be 8 years and above.

Tai Chi
Tai Ch’i (also known as Taiji) is a Martial Art. All Martial Arts are characterised by their degree of hardness or softness. In this sense Tai Ch’i is soft. When practising the Tai Ch’i forms, each position cultivates and flows energy into the vital organs of the body. These movements are often described as “swimming on dry land”.

Most people are drawn to Tai Ch’i after watching a group practising. Without any particular explanation, we somehow accept that this beautiful and serene set of movements brings a feeling of personal harmony. It is a well known fact that the benefits of Tai Ch’i are considerable.

Biddy Ball

Biddy Ball will return on Wednesday the 6th of February 2019 at 4pm.

Biddy Ball is all about having fun and getting active all year round. The program is specifically designed to build hand and eye coordination skills relative to basketball for young children aged 3 to 8 years old. New members are welcome at any time and we look forward to seeing your child develop their love for team sports.

Our Biddy ballers are divided into into approximate age groups, however children develop at different stages and allocation to groups may vary so as to enhance the progress of each individual.

  • BOUNCERS             3.5 to 4 year olds
  • HOOPSTERS           4 to 5 year olds
  • SHOOTERS             5 to 8 year olds
  • BOOMERS               Introduction to under 11’s

Biddy Ball is conducted over two days per week and runs alongside each school term. Wednesday afternoons are for training/development sessions while Saturday mornings is game day! It is recommended that new and early-stage developing players just focus on the Wednesday sessions initially to ensure they build up basic skills and confidence before heading into a game environment on Saturday.

Our awesome coordinators for Biddy Ball are Ann, Casey, Mark, Niki & Wardah. They are happy to help you out wherever they can; the best time to speak to our coordinators about your child is before or after training and after game times. You are also welcome to leave them a message any time by contacting the Basketball Coordinator on [email protected] or 3245 4639.

Biddy Ball Membership

$45 per calendar year (includes free basketball for new members!)

Why is training important?
Children learn the basics of basketball by participating in drills and games specifically designed to develop in-game skills and strategy. It is important for children to attend training regularly so that they reap the benefits of skill development, learning the importance of dedication and improving their ability to concentrate. Just bring a water bottle and wear pants without pockets (Redlands PCYC Basketball short are also available to purchase at reception) and you’re ready to join in the fun!

What can I do to maximise my child’s experience?

  • Arriving ten minutes before game time on Saturday will help the Coordinators allocate children to teams and ensure that games run on time.
  • Redlands PCYC provides playing singlets for your child’s use during games. These are handed out just prior to play commencing and will be collected by the Coordinators immediately after games finish.
  • Please ensure that your child’s shorts don’t have any pockets (for safety reasons). PCYC basketball shorts are available for purchase from reception for $27.00, alternatively your child can wear any shorts without pockets. Please note that Boomers-level players must own black PCYC shorts.
  • Don’t forget to bring a water bottle!
  • Biddy Ball is all about FUN, and encouragement is the key.
  • You can help us to teach your child about good sportsmanship by clapping every player and displaying positive supporter behaviour. The focus is not on scoring or winning, but about having a positive team experience.
  • Please refrain from running with, or alongside, your child during games as this can be a safety issue.

Junior Basketball

Junior Information

Redlands is proud to have the largest basketball program in the PCYC network, with consistent growth seeing us now cater to over 450 junior players! Junior basketball is played here almost every Friday evening (U17 Boys & Girls) and Saturday (U11B, U11G, U13B, U14G, U15B) during each school term.

All players in our junior competitions register individually and are then drafted into teams by the Association management. This helps us to form a balanced competition to create as much enjoyment and competitiveness as possible, however we may sometimes structure teams with the intention of splitting them into divisions later in the year. We cater for all levels from beginners to those more experienced and are able to consider requests for players to play with particular friends, however it is important to note that such requests cannot be guaranteed.

Group training sessions are held for all age groups each week and are open to all registered players. Teams can also organise their own additional training session at a time that suits if they wish (dependant on venue availability).

The emphasis of our junior basketball program is on a low cost & fun family activity with parents encouraged to attend and get involved. We also have a thriving representative program for those aspiring to advance their skills via Basketball Queensland competitions.

If you have any questions would like to know more about basketball here at PCYC Redlands please email [email protected]  or phone 3245 4639. Don’t forget to also follow us on Facebook!

Representative Basketball

Southern Basketball League (SBL)

The Southern Basketball League (SBL) provides an avenue for high-level senior competition for developing elite youth players, players at their pinnacle, and players who have stepped down from higher competition. SBL runs from May to September each year and is open to senior representative teams of Basketball Queensland affiliated associations in south-east Queensland.

Redlands Pride is the youngest of all associations currently competing in SBL, with our best result coming in 2014 when our men’s team made a historic semi-final appearance.

SBL 2019 COACHING ANNOUNCEMENT!

Congratulations to Ian Bones Hibberd and Aaron White who have been named as our head coaches of our men’s and women’s SBL teams respectively.

Bones has done a tremendous job as head coach of our men’s team over the last few seasons and we are looking forward to another great season.

Aaron has moved from assistant coach of the men’s team in 2018 to taking over as head coach of the women’s team next year.

We are looking forward to a big year of SBL and are excited to once again cheer on our teams next year.

If you are interested in playing keep your eyes on our page and website for trial dates early in the new year.

If you are interested in an assistant coach or manager position please email [email protected] with an expression of interest.

Basketball Queensland Junior Basketball Competition (BQJBC)

Redlands Pride participate in the Basketball Queensland Junior Basketball Competition (BQJBC) which is a representative competition conducted in South-East Queensland. Age groups for this competition for both boys & girls are U12, U14, U16 & U21 with each consisting of multiple divisions (excl. U21). Each BQJBC season generally runs from October to March.

All teams nominated by Redlands to compete in BQJBC will also participate in the BQ Junior State Championships which is a 4-5 day tournament involving representative teams state-wide. These tournaments can be held anywhere in Queensland.

Redlands PCYC Pride will soon be holding trials for our 2018-19 representative teams in all age groups – see below ‘2018-19 Season’ section for full details. Consistent with previous season’s involvement we expect to field a team in every boys & girls age group from Under 12 through to Under 21.

2nd team nominations for boys age groups will be dependent on player numbers & skill depth, coaching & official resources available, and the association meeting BQ criteria for nominating additional teams. The association will not confirm the nomination/selection of a 2nd team in any boys age group until after trials have completed and all factors have been considered by management.

2018-19 Season
