New committee members & Helpers required

The club desperately needs parents or guardians to join the club committee. In a club with over 90 gymnasts there are currently only 2 parents on the committee.

One of the head coaches, Claire McLauchlan also fills the position of club secretary however this position takes up a lot of her time out with her normal coaching. Ideally we need a new club secretary however if we can’t get anyone to take on this role it would be good if we had a few helpers who would be willing to help out when required to create letters and some other admin tasks like keep the website and emails up-to-date.

We also desperately need a fundraising committee who would take on the fundraising for the club. The club is a not for profit organisation and fundraising is essential to keep the club running.

If you are attending the registration day tomorrow and may be interested in any of the positions there will be a sheet to put your name on. We will then get in contact with you to discuss further. If you are not attending tomorrow but are interested you can email the club at

We really appreciate any help we can get so please help support the club!
