Whistler Gymnastics asks community for patience 

Strong interest in Whistler Gymnastics programs for the fall has created longer than usual wait lists for some programs. The club is asking parents to be patient, and they will be called if any spots open up.

"Thanks for the interest, and we apologize," said Program Director Tami Ross. Due to the large number of returning gymnasts very few spots opened up this year, and the last spots were snapped up less than 10 minutes into Strut Your Stuff. The club would like to offer more programs and accommodate everybody, but can’t book any more time at Myrtle Philip Community Centre. In addition, the club also has a shortage of coaches for this season, and is attempting to hire an administrator and recreational head coach.

"We’re dong our best to get a permanent facility in Whistler, as well as more coaches, and if any parent wants to help they would be welcome on our facility committee," said Ross.

"We need a permanent facility to accommodate the interest we’ve been seeing, as well as to attract staff – right now we have set up our equipment before and after every day of classes, and that’s hard on our coaches and the equipment."

Spaces are still available for Whistler Gymnastics winter and spring sessions. Check the website, www.whistlergymnatics.com , in October for more information.
