About Us

Mission Statement 

Our mission is to continue to provide Cambridge and the Waipa community with a safe, inclusive and supportive environment where individuals of all ages and abilities can develop their physical, mental, and social skills through the sport of gymnastics. We are committed to promoting health, wellness, and personal growth, while fostering a sense of community and belonging among our members. As a non-profit organisation run by a committee of passionate volunteers, we strive to make gymnastics accessible to everyone regardless of their financial or socio-economic background, and to empower our members to achieve their full potential both in and outside of the gym.

History & Background

Cambridge Gymnastics Club has been in operation since 1979. In term 4 2018, we moved into a new venue at 187 Shakespeare Street, Leamington, Cambridge (between BP and  Community House). After this successful move in 2020 we increased our occupancy to double our floor area.

In recent years our club has grown its numbers significantly. In the 2023 season we now have over 250 members, along with coaches and volunteers. 

We have a dedicated management committee that consists of 5 members and 4 friends of the committee.  We currently have a number of qualified coaches and student coaches-in-training for whom we cover the training costs to become qualified. 

Several years ago our club implemented a uniform for all our members to wear on training nights. This has been very successful and makes our children look smart as well as giving them a sense of pride and belonging in the Club. It also ensures that appropriate attire is worn for safety purposes. This year we have updated our uniform to be smarter and more versitile. A club hoodie is also available for purchase. Details of our uniform can be found on the Uniform Orders page.

Volunteers and Coaches

Cambridge Gymnastic Club has grown thanks to a strong group of volunteers behind it and we are always on the lookout for volunteer helpers and coaches. 

The Clubs' present and future is in your hands – the club is here to serve its members of which you become one once enrolled. Please consider whether it is time for you to step up to ensure it has a bright future for next generations.
