All YMCA Brisbane Gymnastics Clubs are affiliated with Gymnastics Queensland & Gymnastics Australia.

The YMCA is very proud to have achieved accreditation as a child safe organisation through the Australian Childhood Foundation, following an independent and comprehensive review of our organisational policies and procedures. The program is a unique voluntary accreditation scheme for organisations who have a duty of care to children and young people whilst delivering a service or activity to them and/or their families. The program systematically builds the capacity of organisations to keep children and young people safe from abuse.
