February Club of the Month - FCGC Gymnastics
Gymnastics Victoria are proud of having so many fantastic clubs across the State. We will be featuring Club of the Month profiles – you can nominate a Club to be featured by clicking here.
Footscray City Gymnastics Club (FCGC) are the February Club of the Month! FCGC is a leader in providing quality gymnastics programs for all ages and abilities.
Currently, FCGC is busily preparing for the opening of their brand new venue at Williams Landing; a testament to the relentless demand for their programs. To top off their list of recent achievements, FCGC’s B.I.G coaches were recently awarded the ‘Recreational Coaching Team of the Year’ at the 2018 Gymnastics Victoria Awards Night.
Offering a diverse range of classes, from 6 months of age in their Bilbies program through to adults in their popular B.I.G (Building Independent Gymnasts) program, FCGC promote a strong ethos of building both confidence and character and of developing each participant as a whole person.
The B.I.G program sees any gymnast over the age of 13 train together regardless of their stream or ability. Gymnasts have access to their own lesson plan before coming to class, which gives them the opportunity to prepare for what they want to work on before coming to the class.
Notably, in the past 6 months, FCGC have promoted gymnastics and inclusion by:
• Delivering gymnastics to adults with a disability at the All-abilities Sports Day hosted by the Annecto Disability Service
• Introducing mix-gender training to promote inclusion of participants who identify as gender-diverse
• Introducing the ‘Fitter for Life program’ for adults aged 50+
• Engaging the local community through outreach at the Point Cook shopping centre
Congratulations on all of the achievements FCGC – we can’t wait to see what is to come in 2019!
