“ASYCC creates opportunities for everyone to build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities. Provide affordable sport & recreational activities in a safe, clean, and inviting environment for people of all ages through sound business and management practices”
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. There is a boxing shed with boxing bags, weights and even a ring where Alice Springs boxing champions James Swan, Jason Lord and Henry Collins have inspired local children.
Kids as young as five can get involved in the gymnastics and some Martial Arts, while adults can take advantage of a choice of martial arts, and boxing and gain 24hr access to our Weights Gym. Higgins Hall is available for private functions, recent upgrades to our Skateway have created a safe and usable space for Skate Boarding, Street Soccer, Skating, and Bikes.
The Alice Springs Youth Community Centre (Inc.) is located at the base of ANZAC Hill, next to the rugby grounds.
