The Calisthenics Association of WA enlisted parent help after head coach and president Andrea Phillips moved to Sydney to take up a new opportunity.

Lillian Kluge, whose daughter Tarryn (20) coaches, is the new president of the club that is now based at the Quintilian School in Mt Claremont.

‘I’ve been involved since it started five years ago in Floreat,’ Mrs Kluge said.

‘A friend started the club originally and Tarryn came in to help coach.

‘When the parents decided they wanted the club to continue’
