In 1989 a group of mums’ were interested in their toddlers being involved in an educational fun gym program to develop their children’s physical and social skills. After a long year of organising and fundraising those initial ideas became a reality. A competition was organised to name the Club and “Birralee” was chosen which is aboriginal for children.
The first classes were held in 1990 and Birralee was affiliated with the Y.M.C.A. In January 1996 Birralee affiliated with Gymnastics Australia which was more specific to our Club and offered valuable resources.
To provide educational based fitness program for children from crawling through to adulthood which will encourage, develop and promote Gymnastics as the basics of all sports and to nurture each member’s motor skills and to broaden, develop and explore each member’s potential.
