Why do we have to pay the Gymnastics Ontario fee every year? Why is Pickering Athletic Centre part of Gymnastics Ontario?
These are a few of the frequently asked questions regarding Gymnastics Ontario membership. Pickering Athletic Centre is proud to be a Gymnastics Ontario member club. As an individual, you automatically become a member of Gymnastics Ontario when you join Pickering Athletic Centre (and this fee is transferable to any other G.O. member club). As a club, becoming a member provides us with the following benefits.
Every member club is covered by liability insurance, as well as accident medical coverage. No other sport association in North America provides such extensive coverage at this price.
As a Gymnastics Ontario member, our coaches must complete practical and theory National Coaching Certification Program courses. Our coaches also have online access to the NCCP coaching courses, Respect in Sport courses, and Risk Management courses. Gymnastics Ontario holds an annual Coaching Congress that features top Canadian and international clinicians. This event allows for educational, strategic, and business growth, and Pickering Athletic Centre is proud to send coaches and staff each year.
As a member of Gymnastics Ontario, we join a community of 195 clubs, 85,000 athletes, 3,500 coaches, and 250 judges from across the province. Our members provide the highest quality programs in recreational, rhythmic, acrobatics, men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics, tumbling, and trampoline.
All gymnastics clubs using music in any form in their programs must, by copyright law, obtain a SOCAN license.
