Calgary Gymnastics Centre is the largest gymnastics facility in Calgary. With two locations to choose from, in Canada Olympic Park and on Country Hills Blvd, it’s fun and convenient for kids to try out a wonderful all-around sport. Gymnastics is a great sport for teaching your child basic physical literacy. The strength, coordination, flexibility, and body awareness that is central to gymnastics is a must for many other sports. Of course, children love to move, jump, and challenge their bodies in interesting ways anyway, making gymnastics a wonderful active choice!
Calgary Gymnastics Centre offers classes for any age and any level at both their North and West locations. Everyone from babies to adults can enjoy the facilities and have fun challenging their bodies.
