WIDE BAY GYMNASTICS CLASSES
Reach for the Stars
Wide Bay Gymnastics Club is located in Hervey Bay and has been operating for 30 years moving into its own building in Walkers Road, Urangan in January 1996. Prior to this, the club had operated out of the Great Hall in Beach Road, Pialba. Classes offered at the Great Hall were restricted to beginners classes, minor levels and a fledging competitive program.
With the opening of its own purpose-built centre, the support of volunteers and the guidance of Master Coach Heinrich Gogoll, the club developed a program which now caters for participants of all abilities including:
Preschool Gymmnastics (Tiny Tots)
Recreational Gymnastics for boys and girls
Competitive Gymnastics for boys and girls
High performance gymnastics
Wide Bay Gymnastics Club aims to:
Provide an opportunity for all people to participate in the sport of gymnastics, thereby enabling them to achieve their own level of excellence in a safe and healthy environment.
