Calgary Gymnastics Centre is the largest gymnastics facility in Calgary. With two locations to choose from, one in Canada Olympic Park and one on Country Hills Blvd, it’s fun and convenient for kids to try out a wonderful all-around sport! Gymnastics is a terrific sport for promoting 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, so they love gymnastics!
Calgary Gymnastics Centre offers classes for any age and any level (starting with babies!) at both their North and West locations. Everyone from babies to adults can enjoy the facilities and have fun challenging their bodies. From three competitive disciplines, as well as adult, recreational and preschool programs, you’ll find something to suit your family. Is your child (or you!) a recreational athlete looking for a little fun and fitness? There’s a class for you. Are you raising an international athlete with a gold medal in their dreams? There’s a class for you, too! The Calgary Gymnastics Centre has it all!
Do you have a busy baby? Crawlers and walkers will love exploring the age-appropriate obstacles during a parented Tiny Tykes class. Toddlers and young preschoolers can also enjoy parented classes and achieve accomplishments of age-appropriate skills like balance, forward rolls, mini-handstands, and more. With the use of balls, ribbons, hoops, and beanbags, your child will begin to develop their rhythm, fine motor skills, and listening skills. If you have a 3 or 4-year-old who’s ready to roll (literally!), enroll them in an action-packed, unparented class with exciting, theme-oriented circuits.
If your child is age 4 to 6.5 years, the KinderGym programs offer a variety of activities designed to develop a love for the varied events in gymnastics. Your child can work on all gymnastics events including vault, bars, beam, floor, and trampoline while developing social skills, self-esteem, commitment, and a sense of achievement in a fun, friendly, and safe environment. Cardiovascular and muscular endurance, flexibility and strength are incorporated.
Once a child is 6 (ages 6 – 17), they can join the CanGym program, allowing them to work at their own level, mastering skills and earning badges from the progressional CanGym program set out by Gymnastics Canada. As they progress through the badges, boys and girls will begin training in separate groups, helping them progress to new heights!
Older kids (ages 12 – 17), whether they’ve done gymnastics before or just want to try something new, will find a place to have fun and challenge themselves in the Teen Gymnastics Class.
Of course, we haven’t even mentioned the CanJump program for trampoline lovers, Acro Skills for Dance, Skills and Drills, or the Drop and Gym program! Calgary Gymnastics Centre has something for every child and schedule. Once you see how much fun it is, maybe you’ll want to register for the Adult Gymnastics, suitable for everyone. (Kids don’t get all the fun!)
The spring session at Calgary Gymnastics Centre begins on March 31, 2019, but be sure to register early. (Open registration begins March 13, 2019.) You can also give your kids a taste of the fun to come and register them for a spring break camp from March 25 to 29, 2019! Let your kids discover the joy of movement and the wonder of what their amazing little bodies can accomplish at the Calgary Gymnastics Centre.
