Do you want to give your little ones an active start? Then this fall, it’s time to play, roll and bounce into classes at the Calgary Gymnastics Centre!
The Calgary Gymnastics Centre is the largest gymnastics facility in Calgary and has tons of programs available for every age and ability. With two locations to choose from, in Canada Olympic Park and on Country Hills Blvd, the Calgary Gymnastics Centre is fun for kids and convenient for parents. From babies to adults, the Calgary Gymnastics Centre offers options for everyone to check out the sport of gymnastics!
Did you know that gymnastics is a foundation sport?
Gymnastics provides important building blocks for physical literacy by teaching important fundamental movement skills that ALL kids need! The foundation for movement developed here is easily transferred to the playground and to so many other sports and activities.
Classes at the Calgary Gymnastics Centre take a fun and interactive approach to developing the ABC’s of physical literacy: agility, balance, coordination, and speed. Through a wide variety of coach-led activities and games, your child will develop the confidence to move in a fun, supportive, and safe environment.
The Calgary Gymnastics Centre wants all children to get an ACTIVE START, no matter their age or ability! Their excellent programming begins at 6 months, with parented classes for the youngest crowd and independent classes for kids starting at age three.
The parented classes at Calgary Gym Centre start with Babynastics for infants from 6 – 20 months. This class encourages infants and toddlers to learn new skills and activities in a stimulating and fun environment. Gym Mites, for toddlers 18 months to 2.5 years, will lead you and your child through the basics of gymnastics in a variety of activities and circuits. Children ages 2 to 3.5 years can join Gym-A-Tot, for a chance to experience a variety of gymnastics equipment and accomplish age-appropriate skills. The Country Hills North location also runs Tiny Tumblers which is a combined program of Gym Mites and Gym-A-Tot for ages 18 months – 3.5 years.
Once your child is 3 and ready for unparented classes, be sure to check out Hot Shots, for kids ages 3 – 4.5 years. Kids will learn independence as they progress through theme-oriented circuits. KinderGym is for children from 4 – 6.5 years and offers an advanced learning experience based on individual skill sets, incorporating elements from the CanGym program and featuring kindergarten readiness skills.
Do you have older kids? CanGym, CanJump, and Acro Skills for Dance are all classes available for participants ages 6 – 17 years. In these classes, athletes progress through a series of levels or badges as they complete their goals. Kids love to watch their progression as they advance to new levels! There are even teen and adult-specific classes, so everyone can play.
Instead of specific ‘sessions’, the Calgary Gymnastics Centre has introduced monthly ‘rollover registration’ that will allow you and your family the flexibility to personalize your gymnastics experience.
Register ONCE to secure your spot and your registration will automatically ‘rollover’ until the end of June 2024! With three withdrawal deadlines (September 1, 2023; December 1, 2023, and March 1, 2024) you can customize your gymnastics experience without the hassle of having to re-register! Please note that fees will vary from month to month as they will be based on the number of classes within that specific month.
Registration for the Calgary Gymnastics Centre’s 2023-24 season opens at 7 pm on June 13, 2023, for current members and June 15, 2023, for new participants.
Gymnastics is a wonderful way to stay active and get fit while having fun! So be sure to mark your calendar and register early, as classes fill up quickly!
