Expressions of Interest - Gymnastics classes, Castle Hill, NSW

Jane Cooke at Castle Hill RSL Club's Gymsports program wants to hear from families interested in gymnastic classes for people with special needs:

Castle Hill RSL Gymnastics Club in conjunction with Gymnastics NSW has been working towards the education and training essential to developing an ongoing Special Needs Program during the Term as well as the already established Holiday Clinics.

With our responsibility as a 5 star club within the Association and commitment to support Coaching Courses and State based Competitions, time limitations have proven to challenge our desired plans to this end until now…...

Castle Hill RSL Gymnastics is seeking your Interest in consideration of programming a weekly Special Needs class during the School Term for Children within our community in 2010.

We would like to run a 6 week block program each school term from week 3 to week 8 on a Sunday. Sunday was chosen as it is the most valuable quiet time in the facility. This class would be specifically designed for Special Needs Children, not including siblings. Parent/ carer involvement is desired, although we are hoping to establish a network of Volunteer helpers to support each class program to give respite to families who have need, otherwise.

There would be 2 classes of 90 minutes duration, the cost for the program inclusive of Gymnastics NSW Affiliations and RSL Junior Sports Membership would be $70.00 per term

(Click here for) an Expression of Interest Questionnaire that should only take a few minutes to complete. If you are involved in a Network Group in Special Needs, it would be helpful if you could pass this questionnaire onto others who may be interested.

Please return to the address given so that we can move forward to make this program a reality. If you would rather complete the questionnaire by Email attachment, please email me on so that I can send the questionnaire directly.

We would like to gather this information by the start of October.

Kind regards,
Jane Cooke
Gymsports Coordinator
