Heffron Centre, the eagerly anticipated world-class facility in Maroubra, is now officially open to the public, offering an array of sports, dance, and gymnastic programs for people of all ages and abilities. 

The indoor multipurpose facility boasts a two-court sports hall capable of accommodating various sports such as netball, basketball, badminton, volleyball, and indoor futsal. The site includes a dedicated gymnastics area featuring high-quality equipment, ensuring a safe and progressive environment for gymnasts to develop their skills.

BK’s Gymnastics Heffron Centre, a prominent program offered at the facility, has carefully curated classes to cater to various age groups and skill levels. The programs follow a two-week plan focused on skill competencies relevant to each developmental milestone, ensuring a safe and progressive approach for gymnasts. 

From the Stepping Stars program for children as young as walking age up to 2 years, to the Gym Fundamentals, Club Gym, Ninja Stars, and All Stars Academy programs for older children and competitive gymnasts, there is something for everyone.

BK’s Gymnastics coaches incorporate elements such as strength, coordination, flexibility, mobility, support, and balance to help gymnasts progress to more advanced levels. Special events like Check-In Week and BK Carnival provide opportunities for participants to showcase their progress and celebrate their achievements.

Heffron Centre also introduces the Dance Society, a program aiming to bring dance to life within the Maroubra, Hillsdale, and surrounding communities. The Dance Society offers classes for preschoolers (3-5 years), Junior Hip Hop (6-14 years), and Open Dance classes.

The Open Dance class offers adults an opportunity to explore dance for the first time or relive their former dance glory days. These classes combine Jazz, Classical Ballet, and musical theatre, delivering a well-rounded and enjoyable experience for beginners and dance enthusiasts alike.

Not only does the Heffron Centre offer sports and gymnastics programs, but it’s now the new home and the high-performance centre of the South Sydney Rabbitohs. This facility also supports Souths Cares’ educational and community initiatives.

Moreover, visitors can enjoy various publicly accessible areas, including a café, a hall of fame, a merchandise shop, and a fan area with a view of the NRL standard showcase field, where training sessions can be observed.
