our story

With the cancellation of the University of Calgary Competitive Gymnastics programs, the opportunity arose for the start of a new Gymnastics and Spatial awareness curriculum designed as both an introduction for children and the further development of high-performance athletes.

The University program was directed by our executive director Tony Smith for the past 30 years, Tony produced 19 National Team members, coached in 3 Olympics, 11 World Championships and was the CanadianNational Team Director for 5 years. Tony will be playing a crucial part in the development and implementation of the new program, bringing with him the best qualities of the U of C program without. Heading up our coaching staff will be 2x Olympian Nathan Gafuik of Calgary and former
U of C Women’s Head coach Joel Cornelius. 

It is important to continue with this program in the North West Calgary area, as we have been servicing the surrounding communities for almost 40 years.
