COVID-19 UPDATE

Since March 23, 2020, we have switched to training online! Each competitive stream receives two full virtual practices a week with their coaches. We are so impressed with our athletes and coaches and the growth and connection they have gained over this challenging time!

As a Club, we believe it is of utmost importance to continue supporting our gymnasts, not only for their physical health and well-being, but also to support them as part of our gymnastics family in this radically different time.  We will do what we can to ensure that gymnasts maintain good physical form, keep moving, and prevent re-injury once we can resume training, as well as offer support and motivation, celebrate their successes and offer a continued sense of community.

Program Description

For those gymnasts who are want to pursue rhythmic gymnastics as a competitive sport, we offer high caliber Interclub and Western Regional/Provincial stream competitive gymnastics with regional and national travel opportunities. The gymnasts are driven to excel and grow within the sport. All competitive steams train 2-4 times per week including a Vaganova Ballet class with a ballet instructor  - the strongest foundation for rhythmic gymnastics. All levels in the competitive stream are by audition only and all new gymnasts are under a 6-week trial period at the start of the season.
