Gymnastics BC Membership

Membership Fees.

2023-24 Membership Fees

The fees below were approved at the 2022 GymBC AGM. 

All members receive member services associated with joining Gymnastics BC either as a club or individual member.

Membership fees are valid from September 1 to August 31 of each year.

Members who are involved in multiple roles are registered in all categories and pay only the highest membership fee (i.e. a competitive athlete who is also a recreational coach will only pay the competitive athlete fee, but they will be registered in two roles; competitive athlete and recreational coach).

Gymnastics BC membership fees include insurance as well as an $8 (per individual) Gymnastics Canada membership fee, where applicable.

2023-24 Fees By Membership Category

*Beginning with the 2023-24 membership year the Casual participant membership category increased the number of visits permitted from five (5) to eight (8) visits (between Sep 1 and Jun 30) and will also permit unlimited Jul/Aug summer programming visits (effective July 2024).

Casual membership is non-transferrable between clubs, so if an individual participates as a casual participant at more than one club, they will be required to pay the Casual membership fee at each club. This is due to difficulty in coordinating and tracking the number of visits between multiple clubs.

Please contact GymBC's Member Services Manager if you have any questions.

Zone Fees

Zone fees are set by the individual zones for regional development and to offset costs of regional activities. 

Zone fees are in addition to the Gymnastics BC membership fees. Zone fees are applied per athlete except for trampoline program participants and casual participants. For more details on specific zone fees, please contact your zone chair.
