Our Mission

 “To give every child the opportunity to develop sound, lifelong habits in physical activity through Gymnastics in an environment designed to create a powerful and positive self image.”

Eclipse Gymnastics was established in December 1991, to provide high quality gymnastics programs for children in Ringwood and surrounding suburbs.

The Club started with 17 enrolments and by the end of the first year it had swelled to some 250 gymnasts ranging from Pre-schoolers to Level 5 gymnasts. The Clubs original venue was a 371 square metre facility located on Maroondah Highway near Oban Rd. In 1994, the Club expanded to a 576 square metre facility a little closer to Ringwood on Maroondah Highway opposite Dublin Rd.

In 2008, Eclipse Gymnastics moved to a 1365 square metre facility near Oban Rd. The new facility has an in-ground trampoline and foam pit, air-conditioned offices and spectator facilities and great car parking. But we realise that facility is only one part of the equation. Great people running great programs is critical to your child’s success.

We aim to excel in our commitment to continuously improve our professional coaching practices to help your child eclipse their best. Eclipse Gymnastics is affiliated with Gymnastics Victoria and all coaches are accredited and registered with Gymnastics Australia, or are currently involved in coach education and accreditation programs.
