Splitz Community and Team Spirit
Splitz Gym hosts several competitions each year as well as fun events aimed at fostering team spirit within the Splitz community and recognising the achievements of all gymnasts.
We have club events both competitive and recreational and a few times a year we open our club to the public.
2nd to 8th March 2019
Our next major event is our China training trip in March 2019. This week-long trip to a gymnastics academy in Nanjing is open to our senior WAG and MAG gymnasts only. It is hoped an international trip will become an bi-annual event and it presents an amazing opportunity for our junior gymnasts to aim for.
Gymnasts going on that trip are currently raising funds through the Queensland Government's Container Refund Scheme, which starts on November 1 this year. We are already collecting suitable containers so that we can cash them in for 10 cents per item when the scheme kicks off. These funds will be directed to our China trip initially, but all proceeds will flow to the Splitz Fundraising Committee after the trip.
The list of suitable containers can be found here. Please note all containers need to be washed and lids need to be removed. They can then be left in the large metal storage cage at the gym. The best thing is we are also helping to protect the environment!
Splitz Gym 2019 Colour Day and Sleepover

Individual Physio Assessments with Alex Mackay
February 3, 2019 9.00am to 4pm
Senior Physiotherapist Alex Mackay will visit Splitz Gym to conduct individual assessments for interested competitive gymnasts to ensure their training is pain free. Alex will work with our gymnasts to determine the source of any pain or niggles and any interventions that may be required. He will look at warm ups and the technique used while training specific skills to ensure its correctness. An individual report will then be emailed to the gymnast and the club to ensure our gymnasts are training at their best. Alex will attend the gym again in the second half of the year for a similar session to ensure our gymnasts are in top form for State Championships.
Alex has a Masters in Physiotherapy and a Bachelor of Exercise Science. He puts great importance on patient education and understanding of symptoms. He is currently developing an adolescent sports management program for gymnasts.
Each half-hour session will cost $45 and these can be booked at the front desk when training resumes on January 14. Payment can be made via cash on the day or Alex will provide an invoice for payment via direct deposit. All sessions are claimable on private health and receipts will be emailed once payment is received.
Date: Sunday, February 3, 2019
Time: 9.00am - 4.00pm
