Benefits of Gymnastics

Gymnastics offers many physical, emotional and intellectual advantages, which benefit growing children. Through the progressive development of skills, young people learn dedication and the value of perseverance. Gym activities promote strength, flexibility, balance, co-ordination and are an excellent grounding for many other sports.

The training environment also introduces goal setting, time management skills, promotes concentration and discipline, cooperation, teamwork, listening, and comprehension skills, taking instruction and criticism, and also for the competitive stream, performing for an audience.

Coaching Staff

Most of our coaches were/are gymnasts themselves and many have grown up at Knox Gymnastics Club.   All coaching staff employed by the club are registered with Gymnastics Victoria. and hold either a minimum coaching qualification of Intermediate; or are in training and under the direction of our senior coaches. Our senior coaches hold an Advanced qualification or higher.

The Club

Knox Gymnastics Club Inc. commenced back in 1972.

Previously based at both Carrington Park, Scoresby and Mossfield Avenue, Ferntree Gully. An extension was carried out allowing us to move into our sole venue (Mossfield Avenue) in 1992.

Originally operated by the Knox Council; since the end of 1999 it has been facilitated by a Committee of Management, made up of parents of gymnasts from the club. The day-to-day administration and program are managed by paid staff. It is a non-profit community based organisation. The building we use is owned and occupied by Licensed Agreement from Knox Council.

Old Knox Carrington Park LogoOur club is one of the biggest in Victoria with around 800 members registered each year.
