Who is Gymnastics BC

Gymnastics BC is the provincial sport organization responsible for the governance, promotion and development of gymnastics in British Columbia.  Established in 1969 as a non-profit association, GBC provides support and services to its member clubs.

Gymnastics BC is the fourth largest provincial sport organization (PSO) in B.C. and the third largest gymnastics PSO in Canada.

The association is membership based with a Board of Directors led by a membership elected president and vice-president.  It has three standing committees and four technical committees.

How is Gymnastics BC funded?

Gymnastics BC is primarily funded through member fees and grants from the Government of BC. Additional funding comes from sponsorship, donations and other private and public sector grants.

Member fees are received by gymnastics clubs as part of their annual registration as full member clubs. Each club then submits individual member fees for all of their participants. Other fees are collected for participation in GBC events and competitions and sanctioning of club invitationals.

Gymnastics BC is fortunate to receive funding through a number of Provincial Government Grants which it applies for annually. Grants are applied to various Gymnastics BC programs and focus on generating increased participation, coach development, high performance athlete support and the supporting of communities hosting events.
