About Ingleburn RSL Physical Culture Club
At Ingleburn RSL Physical Culture Club (Ingleburn RSL Physie for short), we proudly teach the BJP Physical Culture curriculum. BJP Physie is the oldest running and most prestigious Physical Culture establishment in Australia. For over 125 years, BJP has provided a national platform for Physie clubs to come together to engage in competitions and camaraderie.
“Physie is an elegant way of developing not only fitness but also grace, strength and focus in our girls and women. At BJP, what we are most proud of is how Physie weaves its way throughout the lives of Australian families. Generations of women have discovered lifelong friendships, a true sense of community and a sport for life in Physie.” – Jackie Rawlings, BJP Physical Culture
Empowering Girls for Life
There is an aura of confidence around Physie girls of all ages. Taught to stand tall, with strength and pride, they are team players committed to achieving their goals.
Unlike some ballet and dance studios, Ingleburn RSL Physical Culture Club focuses on developing the self-esteem of its students. By teaching them to have a positive relationship with their bodies, we help students blossom with confidence and self-assurance.
BJP Physie is passionate about nurturing students’ total wellbeing, in both mind and body. Physie is an accepting and encouraging team sport, where every member is supported and motivated to be the best they can be.
Meet the Teachers at Ingleburn RSL Physie!
Sharon Wilson – Tiny Tots, Juniors, Ladies
Sharon started physie at age 9 with Balmain Congregational Club, and instantly fell in love with all things physie. Her mother and two of her three sisters also joined and it truly was a family affair – meaning that her dad and two brothers became part of the physie family too! Sharon competed at Zone during her Junior physie years and was a part of many successful teams throughout her teens. She returned to physie as a Lady, winning places at Zone and achieving National Finalist (top 15) status many times. Sharon continues to compete at a national level in the Open Ladies Masters section – and still loves every minute of it!
Sharon has been Head Teacher at Ingleburn RSL Physie since 2009 and finds the most exciting part is watching her students master the challenges that each year’s new syllabus brings. An aim for precision, team work, and a love of competition for its own sake are the qualities she values highly and most wants her “girls” to embrace.
“Confidence, empowerment, team-mates, friendship are just some of the benefits I’ve received from physie. I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to share these as a teacher and am very proud to be the head of our Club.”
Emily Blackburn – Senior Girls
Emily has been involved with physie her whole life, commencing classes at the age of 3! From an early start where she would only put her heels together if she felt like it, Emily now competes at the highest level as an Open Senior in both teams and champion girl, representing Figtree club. She has been in many winning teams through the years and has been a National semi-finalist at senior champion girl. Emily has also performed in the BJP 125 year Spectacular celebrations in 2017, assisted “back stage” at Junior Nationals for the last ten years and has loved every minute of every performance!
Her passion for physie is something that Emily loves to share and teaching was a natural progression that has allowed her to influence, empower and build confidence in girls and women of all ages. Emily joined Ingleburn RSL Physie as a teacher in 2018 and currently teaches 13 Years through to Open Seniors.
