Through interactive displays, activities, demonstrations and educational materials, the club engages persons of all abilities and ages to learn, explore and experience the sport of gymnastics. Some of the annual events include:
- City of Burlington Children’s Festival
- Terry Fox Run
- City of Burlington Kite Festival
- Waterdown and Burlington Christmas Parade
The club created, organized, promoted, and executed “Because I’m Me”, a special day of engaging, empowering activities and discussions, promoting well-being for girls. This interactive day featured guest speakers and activities centered around empowering girls physically, mentally, and spiritually. Over 40 girls attended the event which was promoted through social media and included community partners such as The Gift of Giving Back. This initiative was sponsored by the Canada Summer Jobs program.
Burlington Gymnastics Club partners with the Oakville Butterflies Rhythmic Special Olympic Team, offering free access to our facilities for training.
The club is also partnered with The Gift of Giving Back the largest food drive of its kind in Canada that supports, educates and empowers thousands of youth to compassionately give back to their community. The club is actively involved in the summer and late fall initiatives, and this past year hosted their own drive raising over 650 pounds of food for the local food bank.
This past year, the club opened their doors to welcome members of the Boys and Girls Club of Hamilton. Complimentary classes were offered to allow them to experience firsthand the sport of gymnastics.
Burlington Gymnastics has hosted the Burlington Spring Cup Invitational Artistic Meet for over 32 years, one of the largest invitational gymnastics meets in Canada. This year there were 65 clubs (1,596 participants) registered to attend the event before the pandemic forced its cancellation. This was the first time the event was “sold out”. This meet has been recognized by Tourism Burlington as a key economic driver for the City.
For the past three years, Burlington has hosted the Spring Cup Invitational Rhythmic Meet. This year over 250 gymnasts registered for the event, the largest ever.
Members also hosted the Women’s Artistic Burlington Dash through the Snow event in December for Level 6-9, 10, Aspire and High Performance athletes.
Congratulations Burlington Gymnastics Club!
