Programs Offered

Director: Emily Dancy

Our recreational program consists of a variety of different classes, each offering a different perspective to the sport of gymnastics. Gymnasts registered for this program are required to pay their annual $25 Gymnastics Ontario insurance fee (valid July 2016– June 2017) if they have not already done so during this season. As BGA is non-profit, we do fundraise. These monies go towards buying new equipment to enhance our gym.

Kindergym (1-3)
Our You & Me program enables you to learn, laugh and play with your child in a unique and safe environment. One parent or caregiver must participate with the child. This program is designed to improve physical and social development. We also have a Movers and Shakers Playschool class available.

Drop-in Program (7 months-3)
A non-commitment program where you and your child(ren) learn, laugh and play in a unique and safe environment.
