About Us


Gymnastics Waitara has great members. It is our goal to see every member reach their full potential within a family friendly environment. We value all of our members and realise that they are the most important part of our club. A dedicated and dynamic committee ensures that the club is well run.

Formerly the Waitara Gymnastic Club, in 2017 the club changed its name to Gymnastics Waitara. This change relects the growing number of individual sports governed by the sports national body, Gymnastics New Zealand.

We are a progressive club that wishes to meet the needs of our community and members.    Waitara Gymnastics has been around for about 30 years and we still have some people involved in the club as coaches that were gymnasts all those years ago.
