About PCYC Maitland

The formation of the Police Boys Club came about by initiative of the then Commissioner of Police Mr. W J Mackay (who gained  notoriety in 1932, as arresting officer of Francis de Groot, the guy who slashed the ribbon at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Harbour Bridge) and the Rotary Club of Sydney, who called their venture the Police-Rotary Boys Club.

In 1937, the movement started with 400 boys and ran activities such as wrestling, physical culture classes, debating and enter teams in the local Rugby League competition.

Established in Maitland since 1952, the club was established on the original site, what is now the Carpark adjoining the Maitland Art Gallery (this site is currently free parking for the Maitland PCYC members), then moving across the road to our current site in 1967 with extensions in 2001, 2007 and 2018.
