Club Person of the Month – Fiona Hearn


If you have been involved in PCYC at any stage of your life you will know our Club Person of the Month….Fiona Hearn.

Fiona started at Fremantle PCYC as a gymnast 43 years ago, and has come around full circle to now be the one who gives back to the community in the form of Head Coach at the same Fremantle PCYC. Impressively, Fiona holds a FIG 2 WAG Coaching Accreditation and has coached a state representative (Jaynie who was in the 2017/2018 State Team), Border Challenge Team Member (Georgia) and also taking teams of gymnasts to Prime in Singapore. Fremantle PCYC Gymnastics also have excelled in WA PCYC’s regionals with the Fremantle centre taking out the top club prize on countless occasions.

Whilst the successes are nice it isn’t what Fiona purely focuses on. Fiona loves that WA PCYC strive to provide a fun gymnastics program for all abilities, recreational through to National Levels. It means that anyone who thought they wouldn’t or couldn’t participate in gymnastics now has a home within Fremantle PCYC. The program caters for those gymnasts who want to do limited hours to those wanting to train multiple hours and to those who thought they wouldn’t be able to afford the program. Fiona has been a pinnacle member for gymnastics in not only the southern suburbs but also the WA PCYC community.
