Gymnasts get new room at PCYC
GYMNASTS at the PCYC will finally have room to move when their home base is relocated to a facility in Lester Street in mid February.
Where previously they had to open fire doors to get a full run-up at the vault, or scale down their floor routine to fit in the tiny PCYC space, they will now have ample room to develop their talent.
Bundaberg PCYC branch manager Sergeant Robert Smith said it was a wonderful move for the Coral Isle Gymnastics Club, which uses the complex.
“It was just too small before; they were held back in what they could do,” Sgt Smith said.
“Everyone’s pretty excited about the move and hopefully it’s all done by the second week in February.”
Before training starts at Lester Street, a disabled toilet needs to be built and the apparatus transported to the new location, which has been used as a futsal complex.
Sgt Smith said the plan was to build a weights and cardio gym in the space left at the PCYC.
“Speaking to previous branch manager David Batt, getting a gym was always the goal,” he said.
“We also have major plans for future developments too.”
The gymnasts have enjoyed some time off during the Christmas break, but will return to their new stomping grounds with a little more breathing space in 2010.
