Gymnastics isn’t just for kids. It’s a lifelong way to stay strong, flexible and have fun – just ask our gym full of adults who come out to learn gymnastics for the first time, practice old skills, or turn their acrobatic skills into tricks, stunts and parkour moves!
Whether you join a class because you never had a chance to try gymnastics as a kid, or because you want to get in shape, rest assured that the atmosphere during Adult Gym is warm and welcoming with lots of laughter and teamwork – no matter what your level. We are never too old to increase our physical literacy.
Our Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) Program is one of the biggest in Canada, and it trains boys for three levels of competition: Provincial, National and Elite. Each athlete is encouraged to compete at the level that’s a fit for their ability, commitment and age.
Our youngest members are in a 10-month, non-competitive program. They ease into the training routine with 2-hour sessions, twice a week.
Once our gymnasts get to Grade 2 and up, they train with us 3 or more times per week in a year-round program. They devote 9 to 24 hours to training each week, depending on their degree of commitment and competition goals. Indeed, once our gymnasts become interested in succeeding in competition, we suggest a minimum of 3 to 4 days training per week.
We place our athletes in training groups according to their age, ability, number of days committed to training per week, and their competitive goals. These goals are set in consultation with their coaches and the options open to them at their age.
Provincial level competitions are governed by Gymnastics BC. These competitions are a good fit for new competitors and gymnasts who want to train for fewer hours.
National and Elite competitions are governed by Gymnastics Canada and they provide opportunities for interprovincial and international competition. Gymnasts who compete at this level train for many hours and have a high skill level. Their goals may include joining Team Canada!
