Gymnastics Ontario also sets operating standards and practices, from coaching certification and athlete preparation, to ensuring optimal safety and ethics in the sport. We develop training programs and oversee the organization and running of competitions which help elevate the skill levels of everyone involved including athletes, coaches, the club owners, club administrators, directors, volunteers and parents.
Gymnastics Ontario is responsible for all six gymnastics disciplines: Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Trampoline, Tumbling, Sports Aerobics and General Gymnastics. The first three disciplines are all Olympic sports.
Our mandate is to ensure that everyone can enjoy the sport as safely as possible. That means we address issues such as insurance and risk management. We have also developed ethical standards to ensure everyone feels welcome and empowered.
In this sport, the gymnast comes first.
