Coaches welcome new gym

The Mossman & District Gymnastics Club’s fully equipped gymnasium is all set up and ready to go, just waiting for the new year’s gymnasts to walk through the doors.

The club is keen to welcome gymnasts, both new and old, into their 2012 program which is set to commence on Monday 30 January.

Sign On day will be held at the Mossman Indoor Sports Centre on Saturday 28 January between 9am and 11am where the gym facility will be open for inspection, and aspiring gymnasts will be allowed to check out the equipment and meet some of the coaches.

In celebration of the gym’s opening, The Newsport will run a series of profiles where we asked some of the coaches to share with us the amazing employment opportunities and experiences offered by the club.
