As a non-profit organisation, Deanne Calisthenics understandably relies heavily on volunteers. Family members are required to help at competitions and fundraising events during the year as allocated to your child's team. In addition each family is required to assist with costuming in some way, for example, sewing, sequining, props construction.

We are always looking for helpers throughout the Calisthenics year and invite you to register for your "Working with Vulnerable People Card" with our Committee (we need to see the card please).

It is free for our volunteers who apply, you can apply online through Access Canberra.


Our fees cover around 80% of our expenses each year and we have a number of social events and activities throughout the year where we all pitch in to help raise additional funds for the club and teams.

We ask you to help by:

  • Joining us at our annual Trivia Night or assisting with our major raffle.
  • Performing a duty or 2 at our own Deanne Physicals Team Competition and at ACT competition.
  • Helping to create and maintain our costumes and stage props, and
  • Assisting with other activities such as fundraising BBQs. This may include team organised BBQ or BBQs for the club.
