Ballenas, Kwalikum gymnasts to compete at provincials
Ten members of Parksville’s Flipside Gymnastics shine at zone qualifier
Ten high school members of Parksville’s Flipside Gymnastics will be representing North Vancouver Island at the B.C. championships next month.
The local club competed at the trials and zone championships in Comox, where 54 high school gymnasts from levels 1-5 vied for spots on the North Island team that will compete at the 2018 BC Secondary School Gymastics Championships at Moscrop Secondary in Burnaby, March 8-10.
Stephanie Palichuk, who is one of the high school team coaches at Flipside Gymnastics, said she is proud of their members, who are made up of students from both Ballenas Secondary and Kwalikum Secondary. Qualifying gymnasts will represent their respective schools at the provincial competition, though they practice together as a single club.
Parkour (freerunning) has become a very popular activity these days. Flipside is responding to this demand by offering Gymnastics Foundations for Parkour. This program is now available at both our Nanaimo and Oceanside locations. As there are some classes already filling up, please call for details about date and time availability.
There is limited availability as space is booking up quickly. We will try our very best to accomodate each registration as they are received. Please do accept that these classes will result in wait lists. We will add classes as soon as possible.
