Stellenbosch Gymnastics was established in 2014 as a Men’s Artistic Gymnastics club by Gerhard Swiegers, ex-Protea gymnast. In the first year of operation, the club produced five National champions in their age groups at the 2014 National Championships. Since then, Stellenbosch Gymnastics have grown from strength to strength. In 2019 the club moved into their new facility at The Shed (Spier Wine Farm, Annandale Road). The new facility is equipped with FIG standard apparatus that includes a full floor and “Ressie Type” safety pit which makes training at a higher level possible and safer. We also expanded in 2019 to include Women’s Artistic Gymnastics classes for all ages. We continuously strive to maintain a professional coaching staff with a high level of integrity, knowledge and experience, helping our gymnast to achieve their personal best.
Our Vision is to bring gymnastics to all members of the community in a well-organized gymnastics facility with state-of-the-art gymnastics equipment. We support gymnasts in aspiring to and becoming the best they can be, physically, mentally and emotionally. We use gymnastics as a medium for physical fitness and strive to create an environment where they are shown respect, feel safe, are challenged physically and develop ownership of physical skills. This approach is empowering and enables our gymnasts to explore beyond their normal comfort level, resulting in independent, confident and self-assured young people.
