Canada has a National Training Centre

Gymnastics Canada and the Institut national du sport du Québec (INS Québec) are pleased to announce a partnership confirming the establishment of a national training centre at the INS Québec Complex for artistic gymnastics and trampoline gymnastics.

The INS Québec also becomes the primary site for Olympic preparation for Tokyo (2020) and Paris (2024) Olympic Games for artistic gymnastics.

“We are so excited to have the INS Québec as our national training centre,” said two-time Olympian Ellie Black from the women’s artistic gymnastics national team. …

The facility has so much to offer other than a great gymnastics area. They have a workout gym downstairs and many recovery tools such as the hot/cold tubs that will be so beneficial at keeping our bodies healthy. All of this will help keep our team motivated, excited, and supported on our journey to Tokyo 2020 and beyond.”
