Lance Chaloner has taken over as the new manager with a vision to transform the Shalvey venue into a complex of excellence for indoor and outdoor sports.

“I’ve worked on major complexes around Australia,” he said.

“My goal is to improve the image of the PCYC.

“It will involve a major development program of getting active in the community and bringing the facilities up to the standard they should be.”

Existing activities such as boxing, wrestling, dance, gymnastics and the traffic offenders program will be enhanced while new ones such as indoor netball, basketball and soccer competitions will be introduced.

The junior rugby league club has also been revamped, where players are already using the weight room to

train for the upcoming season.

“We want young people to have the advantages as professional sportsmen and women do and provide the highest standard of competition,” Mr Chaloner said.

He hopes to make the PCYC an affordable and inviting place for young people, but conceded initial reaction from the Shalvey community has been cautious.

“We need to break down those barriers between the community and the police and the PCYC,” Mr Chaloner said.

“We want to engage with the community and different sporting organisations as we need to create a new network of people so they have a better understanding of what the PCYC is all about.

“This is a massive sporting community where there is a vast amount of talent.”

He had this message for the community.

“Engage with us and we’ll provide a facility that works. All we need is the community’s time and support.”

Your Stars – 27.01.2015

ARIES: Your values are tested today — but that’s not so bad for someone like you! As long as you believe in yourself, you should be able to get through almost any kind of appraisal.
南京夜网

TAURUS: Your affection for a friend or family member is leading you in some interesting new directions — so keep heading down that way! Your amazing personal energy is working on your behalf.

GEMINI: Someone needs to hear from you today — so draw deep from your well of wisdom and serve up the best possible advice. It may sound weird, but it’s sure to be what they need to hear from you.

CANCER: Original thinking is one of your many gifts, and today you need to push past everyone else’s groupthink to get to the bottom of some new issue. It’s sure to help your cause at work or school.

LEO: A legal issue becomes more important — though it may not be negative. It could be that the law is definitely on your side, or simply that a hobby has acquired greater significance.

VIRGO: You need to dig into something new — maybe a job prospect, or a new way of thinking about your spiritual side. Whatever it is, try to get started as early as possible, while your energy is strong.

LIBRA: Take a second look at that problem that has been bugging you lately — you may need to rethink everything once you’ve seen that one clue you’ve been missing. Life gets a little sweeter after that.

SCORPIO: Your inclination towards doing your own thing may be problematic today — try to take others’ feelings into consideration first and foremost. That actually is what works out best for you.

SAGITTARIUS:: Though you may not be all that interested in the small stuff, that’s where the action is today — so make sure that you’re really paying attention! You are sure to dig up something good.

CAPRICORN: Can you stick with the program? It’s harder than it looks, but you’ve got the right kind of energy to focus and keep on track despite many distractions. Things should pick up in a few days.

AQUARIUS: Are you reliving your past more than you’d like? Now is the time to dive deeply into it and get it over with. Just roll around in old mistakes or traumas until they lose their power over you.

PISCES: You need to take it easy today — thongs are going your way already, so there’s no need to rush or force them. Just tread lightly and see where the day takes you. Things should start picking up soon.
