Historical information

Athletics was an important activity for boys to be involved in. The Y.M.C.A. encouraged and supported communities to become members and gave them encouragement and support by providing programmes and activities.


The Mt Beauty community established in the 1950s an athletics club which belonged to the YMCA before becoming involved with the Gra-Y and
Hy-Y organisation.
