Twisters Gymnastics Club is a non-profit society incorporated in
June 1977, due to the inspiration of its principal founder Liz
Carter, who remained the club administrator for 25 years. The club
worked out of school gymnasiums, initially running a recreational
program and after 2 years formed a competitive girl’s team. A
daytime program for preschoolers was started at a local community
centre. The numbers grew to approximately 250 gymnasts with a
number of boys showing an interest in competing.
In order to grow as a club, and meet the demand of the community, a building committee was formed and government funding sought, as well as various fund raising projects undertaken. After working out of school gyms for ten years, the club moved to its existing building. The gym was built with the aid of a BC Government grant, club fundraising, and an interest-free loan from the District of Matsqui. Parents volunteered many hours to assist with painting and digging the trenches. The facility is one of the best equipped in the province.
“To provide a high quality gymnastics program which enhances
the participants’ mental and physical development and
Twisters Gymnastics strives to inspire the “spirit of sport” in every athlete. Every athlete’s involvement in the sport is important to the Club.
Twisters Gymnastics encourages athletes who do display a high level of skill to enlarge upon this talent through our competitive program. However, the Club ensures that gymnastics is available to the maximum number of athletes in the area and not just those of a high skill level through our recreational program.
Sportsmanship, team spirit and co-operation are all vital to our athletes. We strive to reflect these qualities at Twisters Gymnastics.
Twisters Gymnastics seeks to provide a high quality
program that encourages every athlete to work to his or
her potential at every level of development and ability
ranging from recreational to elite. All athletes are
encouraged to develop their skills in balance,
coordination, flexibility, and strength of body and mind
in a safe and nurturing environment that encourages the
enjoyment of physical activity, self-confidence, and
excellence in sport.
The Twisters community is expected to model sportsmanship, team spirit, and cooperation in all aspects of participation and celebration of sport and competition.
