Prahran Rhythmic Gymnastics Specialist Centre (PRG) is a leading Rhythmic Gymnastics (RG) club in Victoria, catering for gymnasts of all levels, in both National and International streams. Our club was incorporated as a non-profit, parent-run club in February 2007, after the closure of the RG High Performance Centre (run by Gymnastics Victoria). We continue to maintain the prestige and support from our close relationship with Gymnastics Victoria (GV).
Our training venue is one of the best in Australia, with a newly installed and dedicated RG floor. Our RG floor is Olympic standard and internationally approved. This provides a consistent, professional quality training area used in the highest level of competitions. The spring wooden base of our floor allows for safe landing during jumps. Our 35m (exceeds minimum world standards) ceiling allows our gymnasts to consistently practice their apparatus skills to the heights required at senior competitions. Our facilities also include storage “cage” and permanent office space.
PRG has priority access to the venue 6 days/week – before and after school and all day Saturday. This makes us the only club in Victoria to have this level of the venue availability, which allows us to offer a high number of training days.
High Performance Centre
The Gymnastics Victoria High Performance Centre, located in Prahran is one of the best gymnastics training facilities in the country.
The purpose-built centre has three gymnastics areas, one for each program: mens artistic gymnastics, womens artistic gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics, complete with all the necessary training equipment.
