To provide a full-service gymnastics program to the greater Gladstone community so that each member can maximize their potential and sporting personal goals through gymnastic sports.
In doing so:
Provide safe, high quality skilled movement experiences for all participants.
Provide members with a learning environment that is challenging, rewarding and enjoyable.
Produce a high standard of gymnastics in all competitive disciplines of gymnastics.
Gymnastic sports programs offer new movement experiences, challenges, improved skills and fitness, a sense of achievement and a lot of fun.
That positive movement experience through gymnastics can influence a child’s outlook on physical activity for life.
That success can be measured in many different ways through setting realistic expectations for successful performance and achievement.
That by providing opportunities for male and female, young and old, talented and less skilled, an organised gymnastic sport has special significance in the lives of our members.
Anna Turetschek established the Gladstone Gymnastic Club in 1977. The club headquarters was a shed in Auckland Street. The Club had very little equipment and a concrete floor. With just 12 budding female gymnasts, the club had a humble beginning.
For 26 years the Club’s home was that run down shed on Auckland Street. Over the years equipment was bought and more gymnasts signed on. The club has continued to grow from strength to strength and is a testament to the hard work and dedication, which was put into it from the beginning and over the many years.
In 2004 Gladstone Gymnastic Club moved to new premises. It is now part of the 3.6 million dollar PCYC Multi Purpose Centre. The Mayor Mr. Peter Corones officially opened the new gym hall at a function held on April 3rd 2004. At this function he also announced that the gym hall would be named the “Anna Turetschek Gymnastic Arena” after Mrs T who has dedicated more than 41 years of her life to the club.
Mrs T is still an integral part of the club and rightly so. Many others over the clubs history have also played such a large part in the success of the Gladstone Gymnastics Club. Life membership has been awarded to some of these dedicated people.
Life members include:-
