Safeguarding Children and Young People - Policy Statement
"Mankind owes to the child the best it has to give." - United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989.
The YMCA of Queanbeyan recognises that all children and young people have the right to develop and reach their potential in environments that are caring, nurturing and safe.
The YMCA of Queanbeyan considers any form of child/young person abuse, inclusive of emotional, physical, sexual abuse or neglect, as intolerable under any circumstances.
The YMCA of Queanbeyan has a legal, moral and Mission-driven responsibility to protect children and young people from harm and to ensure that any incidents of suspected child abuse are promptly and appropriately managed.
Staff have a police check along with the state legislated Working with Children screening requirements conducted by the YMCA of Queanbeyan. Staff are also required to regularly access training in Child Protection and related matters.
Rhythmic Gymnastics is a sport that combines elements of ballet, gymnastics, theatrical dance and apparatus manipulation. The use of ropes, hoops, balls, ribbons and clubs makes this a very enjoyable sport.
Classes begin at a recreation level and then progress into our competitive groups. Competitions are run on a level stream with Levels 1 through to 10 as well as a International High Performance Stream.
All coaches are NSW Gymnastics Association Accredited.
