Close to 500 participants from around BC, Alberta and Washington took part in the 19th annual BC Gymnaestrada in Whistler this past weekend.
With workshops on Saturday featuring skipping, parkour, movie stunts and the Groove method, the participants had a great time learning new skills. On Sunday, the participants took to the floor to perform their group Gymnaestrada routines to a packed house and lots of cheering. Joining in the fun was the Gymnastics BC’s PLAY mascot, Sammy!
Thanks to Whistler Gymnastics for hosting this annual celebration of recreational gymnastics, to all of the volunteers for their hard work and to the participants, coaches and families and friends for their support!
Photos of the event are starting to be posted to the album on the Gymnastics BC Facebook page. If you have some great shots from the weekend, please send them to email@example.com to have them included in the photo album!

Gymnastics BC has released its 2011/12 Interclub guidelines and is pleased to announce the introduction of a new category – Performance Plus. This new category is designed to provide older recreational athletes with a bit more of a challenge, while maintaining the same ‘performance-based’ focus. This information, along with a listing of 2012 GBC-sanctioned Interclub meets, is also available for download on the Interclub section of the GBC website
As this is the pilot year for the category, we will review the content of the program at the end of the season and welcome your thoughts and suggestions throughout the year. You can send them to either Aimee Kapil at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Mary Morice at email@example.com.
The Gymnastics BC Interclub program expands the opportunities for athletes at the recreational level. Introduced in 2002, the program provides gymnastics aged 6 and up with the chance to to be part of a team, learn and master routines and have the chance to perform. Interclub promotes a creative environment that does not follow traditional competitive gymnastics (i.e. the FIG code of points). In addition it provides a performance opportunity in a meet-type setting for recreational athletes of all abilities.
