A NEW indoor activity space at Bathurst PCYC is ready for the school holidays.
In recent weeks staff, workers and volunteers have been busy constructing the new functional fitness area.
Bathurst PCYC manager David Hitchick said there is still a little bit of work to do, but the major construction has been completed.
“We’ve just about finished construction. We’ve got paint to put on and carpet to go, but it will be ready for our classes next term,” he said.
The space is planned to be used for gym and workout access during the day, along with parkour classes, which have been a popular addition to the PCYC program in recent years.
Parkour is a movement activity developed from military obstacle course training, where participants can run, swing, climb and jump to get from start to finish.
Children will now have access to a number of obstacles, largely inspired by the Ninja Warrior concept.
The club has re-purposed the indoor back court at the Morrisset Street facility, adding a warped wall, climbing equipment, salmon ladder, monkey bars and some weights-related equipment.
The functional fitness area will get its first major workout with Youth Week activities. For more information about Youth Week or other programs, phone the PCYC on 6331 2191.
