Our Team

 

Kaygees Gymnastics Club was established in 1960 and has run out of various locations in Melbourne's inner north. Now running from a permanently set up gymnastics facility located in Northcote, Kaygees Gymnastics Club offers Pre-school Gymnastics, Recreational Gymnastics, Trampolining classes, Adults Gymnastics, and Birthday Parties.

We focus on our commitment to helping you become the gymnast you want to be.

Kaygees Gymnastics is a community focused, not for profit organisation. A volunteer committee of management runs the club for the benefit of its gymnasts. As no profits are ever taken away from the club, we have invested in quality equipment, highly trained staff, and a great atmosphere to make sure you get the absolute best experience possible. All our coaches are accredited with Gymnastics Australia.
