Becoming a member of Gymnastics Ontario provides you with the following club benefits:
Be Part of a Great Community
As a member of Gymnastics Ontario, you join a community of nearly 200 clubs, 85,000 athletes, 3,500 coaches and 250 judges from across the province. Our members provide the highest quality programs in recreational, rhythmic, aerobics, acrobatics, men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics, tumbling and trampoline.
Optimum Insurance Coverage
Every member and club is covered by liability insurance as well as accident medical coverage. No other sport association in North America provides such extensive coverage at this price. The insurance coverage details are listed in the Club Member Services.
Athlete Development Programs
As a member of Gymnastics Ontario, your athletes will have access to training camps and competitions at the invitational, provincial and national levels. Events are posted on the Events Calendar.
As a Gymnastics Ontario member, your coaches have access to the NCCP coaching courses. You will also have access to Respect in Sport online courses and our Risk Management Courses. Registration for coaching courses is available online.
Employee Group Benefits
Gymnastics Ontario clubs are eligible to become part of a group benefits package offering medical and dental coverage to your employees. We are able to provide you access to this service because we represent so many clubs.
Minimum SOCAN License Cost
All gymnastic clubs using music in any form in their programs must, by copyright law, obtain a SOCAN license. For an independent club with 500 members, this license would cost over $1,000 annually. As part of your Gymnastics Ontario club membership, you will be licensed for $64 per year – a huge savings!!!
Business Success Courses
As a Gymnastics Ontario member club you receive the benefits of 3rd Level Consulting to help fine-tune your business systems and get your leadership team on the same “business page.” Services include online management and leadership courses, monthly business education articles and access to the Success Solutions Dashboard.
Online Registration Management System
As a Gymnastics Ontario member club, you have free access to the registration management system that allows you to easily register your members online with Gymnastics Ontario.
Note: It is important to have your club name approved by Gymnastics Ontario prior to registering with the Government of Ontario.
