gymnastics competition facility set-up

Is there any sport that takes more time, money and effort than gymnastics? We’ve been at it for two days preparing for the Canadian Gymnastics Championships.


Gym looks good. Our biggest problem was laying out the Rhythmic floors. They need a flat, smooth base below the carpet. But not concrete. We tried a number of different base layers before deciding on an interlocking plastic grid material.

Keith Russell had a brilliant idea. Instead of using concrete blocks for anchor weight on the apparatus, he suggested we use concrete parking barriers. These are possibly twice as heavy as the typical 800 – 1000lbs normally used. These bars won’t be rocking.


FIG girls begin training tomorrow. I will have regular updates from Regina, Saskatchewan.
