WAG, MAG & TG Funding

See each discipline's operating manual for more info.

Travel Subsidy

Many athletes that participate in the WAG Optional, MAG, TG Gymnastics BC Championships, Compulsory Gymnastics BC Championships, or the GymBC Xcel Challenge are eligible for funding to offset expenses incurred while travelling to and from the events.  For more information regarding who is eligible and the application process, please click the link below. 

BC Athlete Assistance Program

The BC Athlete Assistance Program (BC AAP) is a program funded by the BC Government which provides grants to provincial sport organizations and post-secondary institutions to help athletes train and compete. By recognizing high performance athletes (selected by provincial sport organizations and post-secondary institutions) who compete in recognized national or international competitions, the BC AAP relieves some of the financial pressures associated with training and competition needs. Gymnastics BC focuses on supporting athletes who are in the position to compete for Team BC at the Canada Games and who are ranked just below athletes receiving Sport Canada Athlete Assistance Program funding (S1/S2 carding levels).

External Funding Opportunities

Aside from Gymnastics BC’s diverse internal funding opportunities, there are many external funding opportunities which can provide financial assistance to BC athletes. Some available external funding opportunities are detailed below.
