News from the Centre – January 2019

Seacliff Recreation Centre offers various programs being Calisthenics, Girls Gym, Boys Gym, Aerobic, Judo, KinderGym and Ju-Jitsu. We have currently around 1500 members who attend their sport at the Centre on a regular basis and the Centre is used every weekday and weeknight as well as weekends for 47 weeks of the year.

Most groups compete successfully on a local and interstate level, but we also ensure that we have programs that are for fun and keeping fit. We realise that competing is not essential to enjoy a sport. If you have anybody in your family interested in sport, you might find what you want right here in your neighbourhood.

Our coaches and leaders are up to date with their qualifications in their respective sports as well as in their First Aid and Asthma training. All coaches are required to have a Police Clearance Check to ensure the safety of our young athletes.

Two of our Life Members, being Annette Simpson and Beverley Manns have received a Premier’s Certificate of outstanding volunteer service for their outstanding work they are doing for the Centre. We are very proud of their achievement.

The Board of Management ensures that the Centre is well maintained inside and out, you can see how well our indigenous garden is doing.

The Centre is always looking for ways to reduce our ecological footprint and thanks to our successful City of Holdfast Bay Greening our Community grant application we installed hand dryers in our rest rooms to reduce the waste of paper towels.

Our largest project in 2018 was our Fund my Neighbourhood ‘No More Leaks’ project. We were successful in receiving $150,000.00 from the State Government to fix our leaky roof over our North Hall and Storeroom. The majority of work has been completed and we are pleased to report we have ‘no more leaks’!

We also installed a new large fascia sign on the front of the building so everyone knows exactly who we are.

Your are probably well aware that parking can be an issue at times and we appreciate the help of the Seacliff Uniting Church by letting participants of the KinderGym program park in their car park to ease congestion. Thank you to our neighbours who avoid parking in our car park during the times when the Centre is in use so we can maximise our car park usage. Please be aware that parking is at your own risk and the Centre will not take any responsibility for damage occurred whilst parking on their premises.

Please be assured that we are not hiring the hall out for any parties or other events that might cause any disturbance to our neighbours.
