Get to Know Our Fun-loving Recreational Coaches
Our recreational coaches are the heart and soul of our program, and they bring boundless enthusiasm to every practice. Their primary goal is to make learning fun and inspire a lifelong love for sports. Our friendly and supportive coaches create an inclusive and nurturing environment, ensuring every child can enjoy the exciting world of gymnastics.
Flicka Gymnastics Club was founded in 1962 by 1960 Olympian, Louise Hemingway and her husband John and has been providing superior gymnastics instruction to athletes of all ages since. Since then the club has grown from 2 gymnasts to almost 2,000 and in 2012 – the same year that our own Brittany Rogers, along with her Olympic team members, achieved the best results for Canadian women in the history of gymnastics. – Flicka celebrated its 50th anniversary.
Currently located in the Harry Jerome Recreation Centre, we offer Kindergym, Recreational, Special Needs and Competitive programs and has given gymnastics a high profile in the local community, BC and Canada.
Our goal is to enable every gymnast to attain a realistic and achievable level of personal success in order to promote self confidence and a lasting enjoyment of the sport of gymnastics.
We inspire its gymnasts to be the best that they can be and to meet their personal goals and commitments.
At Flicka Gymnastics Club, we consider the child as a whole first and foremost. Our goal is for each athlete to learn confidence, discipline, strength, and perseverance and most of all, to be proud of their accomplishments.
