TERM 2 - Welcome Back!

Term 2 commenced today. Term dates are Tuesday 22nd April to Saturday 28th June. Due to public holidays this may be a short term for some.

Holiday's;

  • Anzac Day - Friday 25th April
  • Queen's Birthday Day - Monday 9th June

Also, don't forget the Royal Children's Hospital Appeal KinderGym Festival, which wil be held on Sunday 4th May to help support those kids in need.

Don't forget to support the club!
Next time your at Rebel Sport, don't forget to mention the club name (Knox Gymnastics Club) at point of sale, as 5% of the Sale comes back to the club, which assists in the purchase of new equipment.

Also using your free Community Benefit at Ritchies Supermarket and Liquor Store a small portion of the money you spend comes back to the club.

Safety
As it is now getting darker in the evenings, please take care when moving through the carpark, as it is quite busy.

For children's safety we ask all parents to come into the gym to collect or drop-off your children. Also when moving through the carpark, please take special care to keep your children close.

In order to keep the gym as safe and clean as possible, please make sure to enter and exit through the top door.

New Coaches.
We welcome onboard two new coaches; Rebecca Tilley and Kimberley Woon.
They have many years of gymnastics experience between them. Until recently they have been coaching under Mandy, one of our senior coaches and as of this term they will be taking their own Level 1 Girls classes.

We can't wait to see the enthusiasm and new ideas they bring to the gym.

News
We also have a big news update this week, with results from the last 3 State Trials and Team selections, continue reading to find out more....
