Collie PCYC has recently revamped its parkour-style StreetGym Program with new equipment built by Bunbury Regional Prison through WA Police Community Crime Prevention Funding.
The WA Police Community Crime Prevention Fund supports local community crime prevention initiatives, involving or supported by the police and the community working together on projects to address identified crime prevention priorities.
Through this program, Collie PCYC has received grant funding of $25,000, which Collie PCYC will use to provide activities to engage at-risk youth in positive and challenging pursuits.
“The youth absolutely love this program, as it promotes ‘free thinking’ and is far less structured than Gymnastics,” said Centre Manager Linda Gallagher.
“There is no right or wrong way to complete the course, just the ‘safe’ way. Our instructors are FreeG trained intermediate coaches.”
Along with their StreetGym program, Collie PCYC has also been given the opportunity to host the West Australian launch of Gymnastic Australia’s new FreeG (freestyle gymnastics) kids program.
