Recreational Programs

As you are aware, the Provincial Government has mandated a 28 day lockdown that starts on December 26th 2020.  While we are not surprised by this action, we are sad that once again we are not going to be able to see all our athlete’s training in our facility during this lockdown. 

Our Winter Recreational Session was scheduled to start January 4th 2021.  As a result of the lockdown there will be no classes starting until after the 28 days has elapsed.

It is our intention to defer the start of the session for three weeks, to the week of January 25th 2021.  It is anticipated that the schedule will remain the same.  We will continue to be in touch with any updates or changes as they arise.

Thank you for your support of Gymnastics Energy.  As a not-for-profit organization we rely on the loyalty of our gymnastics families and we appreciate your choosing us for your child’s recreational needs.  We hope to see you back in the gym as planned on January 25th 2021.

In the meantime, please stay safe and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

From a young age our energy tots and kinder-gym athletes learn to move & rotate safely, jump and land safely. It is a perfect start to confidence building. We offer programs for all ages including mixed, men’s, women’s, adult and parent and tot.  Our gym practices safety protocols that help create a comfortable environment for our athletes.  Extra cleaning, mandatory screening and handwashing and much more.  Come check us out!
