The Centre prides its self in promoting an active lifestyle for people of all ages. We have a membership of over 700 from 0-70+.
We offer a range of recreational activities, seven days a week, to the wider demographic of the Alice Springs community. The Centre has successfully operated from a group of old buildings (some dating back to 1947). Our members reflect the population of Alice Springs, everyone is welcome. Some activities attract a fee to cover operational costs, but only survive because they are facilitated by volunteer instructors. If these core activities, and others from hiring the facilities, did not exist the ASYCC would not be able to remain functional, and provide the many vital public access opportunities for sport and Youth social interaction.
The Centre has the following areas: a large dance studio, which is now the home of the Greatorex Public Service Gym; Agnes East Gymnasium (gymnastics and circus space); boxing shed; martial arts dojo; and recreational hall in addition to its outside facilities. Individuals and groups are catered for with a range of classes; including gymnastics, boxing, 5 disciplines of martial arts – all taught by qualified instructors. The recreational hall provides pool tables, TV, DVD player and also caters for refreshments from a canteen area.
