No matter the weather, don’t just hibernate this winter! Kids need a place to stay active, keep moving, and tire themselves out for bedtime, right? Gymnastics is a fun and fabulous sport for developing basic physical literacy. Strength, coordination, flexibility, and body awareness are all central to the sport of gymnastics, making it a great all-around activity. Participants leave each class ready to conquer the playground, the next gym class, or participate in additional sports. Calgary Gymnastics Centre is the largest gymnastics facility in Calgary and has a multitude of programs for your family. 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.
With preschool, recreational, and adult programs, as well as three competitive programs, it’s easy to find a gymnastics program to suit your family! Whether you have a recreational athlete looking for a little fun and fitness, or an international athlete “Going for the Gold,” the Calgary Gymnastics Centre has it all!
Even if you’ve never done classes, you can still sign up for gymnastics in the winter session. Anyone ages 6 months and up can jump, roll, and have fun challenging their bodies in interesting ways! You’ll even find gymnastics classes through the winter break, helping you and your kids stay active and learn new skills.
Calgary Gymnastics Centre has a number of parented classes for the youngest crowd, with Babynastics for infants from 6 – 20 months, Gym Mites for toddlers ages 18 months to 2.5 years, and Gym-A-Tot for kids from 2 years to 3.5 years. Unparented classes include Hot Shots, ages 3 – 4 years, and KinderGym, ages 5 – 6.5 years.
CanGym (starting at age 5), CanJump (starting at age 6), and Acro are all classes within the Recreational program for participants up to 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.
The Calgary Gymnastics Centre has made registration so easy, with monthly ‘rollover registration’ that will allow you and your family the flexibility to personalize your gymnastics experience. You can join ANYTIME — there are no specific deadlines! Plus, you only need to register ONCE to secure your spot and your registration will automatically ‘rollover’ each month until the end of June 2023! Need to withdraw earlier? No problem! Just notify them by the 20th of the month prior and they will stop your next monthly payment. (Please note that fees will vary from month to month as they will be based on the number of classes within that specific month.)
So, keep jumping, flipping, and improving this winter! Let your kids discover the joy of movement and the wonder of what their amazing little bodies can accomplish at the Calgary Gymnastics Centre.
