Varsity Gymnastics, Calgary

I visited Calgary’s newest Gymnastics Facility.

Former Canadian National Team Head Coach Tony Smith was installing an ancient Pommel Horse above the entrance. Mason climbed up for some photos.

When the University of Calgary cancelled competitive Gymnastics programs, the club moved across the street into a Gym shared with Volleyball and Wrestling.

Double Olympian Nathan Gafuik is Head Coach. Joel Cornelius the Ninja Program Director. Mason Smith General Manager.

As inflatable buildings go, this one is excellent.

It’s a work in progress. I saw the plans for the above ground pit system.

Tony Smith is also a sales rep for AAI and Spalding so is well connected with facility design.

The Parkour / Ninja area will soon be completed. Certain to be very popular, located so close to Calgary’s biggest University.
