The club’s goal is for children to enjoy the sport of gymnastics in a safe and friendly environment, with skill and fun working hand in hand. Mitchell Gymnastics Club offers fun filled programs geared to teaching children the fundamentals and advanced skills of gymnastics while providing a child friendly atmosphere.
Various programming offered at the club include: Parents and Tots, KinderGym, Beginners, Junior, Intermediate and Advanced programs.
The club ensures that the “Gym Team” gets out into the community at every opportunity. The gymnasts participate in the Santa Clause Parade, street demos, the annual Ploughing Match and demonstrations at the local seniors’ home.
The club also supports various fundraisers in Mitchell and surrounding communities. These include a yearly food drive, coat drive and support for other charities. The club has participated in three Ontario Gymnaestrada, as well as events in Ajax and North Bay where they regularly win awards for team spirit and “wow factor”.
The club has many success stories, from the little boy who worked for five years to be able to do a cartwheel, to the girl with diabetes who was able to attend her first sleepover at the gym.
