The Manly Warringah Gymnastic Club (MWGC) is a community based, non-profit sporting organisation. It is run by a Management Committee of parents and interested parties who offer a broad spectrum of skills and focus on the benefit of the gymnasts. Any surplus funds are re-invested in the Club.
Our Committee is motivated by our Mission Statement.
Our venue in Frenchs Forest is fully equipped with Olympic standard gymnastic equipment and is set up specifically for the purposes of our various gymnastic programs. It is one of the best equipped gymnastic training facilities in the state.
We have served the youth of our community for over 30 years and have many achievements to our credit a small number of which are listed below:
Many of our Club members achieve 1st, 2nd or 3rd in State and National Championships.
In 2001 the NSW Gymnastic Association awarded our Club the title of NSW Gymnastic Club of the Year.
In 2006 we were awarded the title of NSW WAG Club of the year
In 2008 we were runners up in the MAG National Clubs competition
Monique Allen progressed through our Club to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra and became our first Olympian and the first Australian female gymnast to achieve a Gold Medal in Gymnastics, at the Commonwealth Games in Auckland.
A number of our past members have used their extensive grounding in gymnastics to take them to the top in other sporting endeavours, April Adams in diving and Rosanna Ditton in the Pole Vault.
Over the 30 years the Club has played an integral part in the development of many thousands of the youth of our community. They have grown in physique, skill and character and have passed through the Club significantly better equipped to address the many challenges of life than when they joined us.
A number of ex Gymnasts have returned to the Club as Coaches and Judges and made a significant contribution towards the development of their successors.
