Our Club

Strathpine Physical Culture Club was opened in 1982 by founder and current Head Instructress Rae Travers and has been running for 30 years! Our member’s range from 3 to 65 years of age and our classes are held in Petrie.

Beginners of all ages are more than welcome to join and with classes at just $7 a lesson plus annual registration and insurance fees our classes are fun and affordable!

Ladies Teams

Over our many years of practice we have been highly successful with numerous state champions and place-getters as well as national finalists and place-getters! We have also been extremely successful in national teams competitions with our Over 40’s Ladies Team taking out the National
A-grade Championship in 2010.

Above all our club is friendly and welcoming to all members, old and new and will welcome you or your daughter with open arms. We ensure classes are fun, new and exciting as well as giving the girls the opportunity to make new friends. We also encourage inter-age group “buddying” so the younger girls will have lots of older friends to look after them at competitions!

At Strathpine we strive for the best results of all – a big smile and knowing we performed to the best of our ability!
