Our club was set up in 1974 and was originally located in the CBS, Athy. The club initially started out as an acrobatic club and achieved great success and also hosted the 1983 All-Ireland Sports Acrobatic Championships.

During the 90’s the club grew from strength to strength and developed new gymnastics programmes in the disciplines of Acrobatics, Trampolining and Tumbling. This development would lead to the clubs gymnasts reaching great success on the national and international stage at both competitive events and special olympic events.
