YOG International Gymnastics “teams”

Grace Chui found the document which details which Youth Olympic Games athletes have been placed into what combined teams.

A bit of fun. A LOT of confusion, in my opinion.

Hopefully it will help bring a little more attention to the non-Olympic disciplines.

Here’s team Oksana CHUSOVITINA for example:

Alberta trampoline park insurance increases

News from Alberta, Canada.

Insurance costs may drive the pay for play warehouses out of business.

Red Deer’s indoor trampoline park has closed its doors.

… owners of Jump 360 say insurance rates “quadruple what we were paying” and higher employee wages have made it too costly for them to continue operating. …

Jump 360 had been open since May 2016 …

I’d love to see those dangerous parks close.

The downside for Alberta clubs with qualified, certified Trampoline coaches is a new limitation which states that only competitive gymnasts and trampolinists are insured to use tramps, tumbling trampolines, mini-trampolines, etc.

Recreational kids, birthday party kids, Parkour and drop-in participants are not covered for negligence. … I feel this goes too far. Alberta clubs should look for a new insurance agency.
