Why do we do this program?

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.

Delta Gymnastics is a not-for-profit society that is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors.  There is a priority to keep training fees as low as possible and for the past 30 years, the society has maintained two budgets: an Operating Budget and a Non Operating Budget.

The Operating Budget receives revenues from training fees plus some grants and staff initiatives that generate revenues (TAG Challenge, Boutique, Trivia Night, etc.).  The expenditures are utilized to cover staffing expenses (around 90%) and general operating expenses (credit card fees, utilities, supplies, etc.)  We have a revenue neutral goal, meaning all revenues are spent in a balanced way.

To keep our programs as affordable as possible, we offer our Advanced Programs (Competitive and Superstar) a discount on training fees. To offset our Advanced Program discounts, the expectation is that parents participate in fundraising initiatives that can contribute to the Non Operating Budget.

The Non Operating Budget  receives revenue from three main initiatives: Chocolate Drive ($15,000), Spring Fever ($15,000) and Delta Invitational ($60,000).  The funds from these initiatives allow the gym to utilize this revenue for the following expenditures that do not have to come from training fees:

  • Equipment purchases
  • Facility improvements
  • Electronic and Office Equipment
  • Elite Program Fund (in support of the WAG and MAG programs)
  • Coach Scholarships
  • Special Projects
Please note that your participation is the most important thing you can give these events cannot happen without help! The Delta Invitational cannot take place without helpers in place at the event.

MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, GYMNASTICS IS FUN!
