About Altona Calisthenics
Calisthenics is a unique Australian sport that involves a team of pupils learning routines choreographed to music and presenting those routines at competitions. Pupils learn approximately six routines concurrently throughout a year and this is where the diversity of the sport is seen. Calisthenics is both a sport and an art – it encourages physical development, coordination, self-discipline and team spirit.
Altona Calisthenics was first established in 1967 with 17 pupils under the direction of Mrs. Joan Craggs OAM. It has continued to grow and is now a very successful club, winning many competitions.
Altona Calisthenics is a competitive club located in Altona, in the western suburbs of Melbourne. We compete at competitions across the metropolitan area in tinies, sub-juniors and juniors sections and compete at Ballarat, Geelong and Frankston with the inters and seniors.
We are a family-friendly club that offers an all-inclusive fee structure that is affordable for all families. We offer classes for all pupils whether experienced or new to the sport under the guidance of qualified Level 1 coaches.
Classes are held at the Altona Youth Club Hall located on the corner of Sugargum Drive and Civic Parade Altona, commencing in February and continuing weekly, culminating in our annual display in November.
