This year we have decided to start Gymnastics in term 2 as we know everyone is busy and outside enjoying this beautiful weather.

However, if your child would like to participate this year we need more COACHES AND ADMIN HELP so that we can at least maintain our current numbers and hopefully even accept more gymnasts from our HUGE waiting list.  

We are holding our AGM/COACHES/ADMIN Meeting in the MBAS Hall next Monday, March 6th from 5pm.  

If you are able to help our club this year in any way please come to this meeting to discuss this with us or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
