History

Sovereign Calisthenic College was established in Ballarat in 1978.  The College commenced its classes at the API hall in Moyle Street, with a total of 68 students. Originally graded in “D” Grade, the College quickly established itself as a competitive force at the various competitions attended.

Today, Sovereign is an ever-growing, proud and successful club.  The longest established club in Ballarat, Sovereign prides itself on the many team and individual achievements that they have made over the years.
