KGTC is a member-based, not-for-profit athletic facility that inspires enthusiasm for and lifelong involvement in gymnastics | trampoline | diving by providing positive and diverse programming. With an exemplary record of over 43 years of service to the athletic community, KGTC is a proud recipient of the 2012 Ed Brougham Club of the Year Award by Gymnastics Canada. KGTC is a well-equipped 15,000 square foot facility and is part of a multi-sport Tournament Capital Centre that neighbours Thompson Rivers University (TRU).
KGTC – Kamloops Gymnastics | Trampoline Centre was established in 1979 as a registered not-for-profit society and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The society currently has an office and a coach team of approximately 35 people. The administration of the society recommends fee and policy implementation and changes to the Board of Directors for amendments, development and approval in a timely manner or on an annual basis.
The members of the society are the parents of the children registered in all of our gymnastics | trampoline | diving programs (regular members) and anyone who is of service to the society and that the board of directors votes to include as an honorary member. Each September, at the Annual General Meeting, the members elect the Board of Directors of the society from among the regular and honorary membership.
Because KGTC is a not-for-profit society, we rely heavily on the support of our membership. To keep our fees as low as we can, we ask our members to volunteer their time within various aspects of the club, and we ask our members to complete certain requirements. Please see the Family Participation Program (FPP).
The purposes of KGTC are:
- To provide quality gymnastics, sport and physical development programs that enhances participants’ mental and physical development and self-confidence.
- To ensure that gymnastics is available to a maximum number of children in the area and not just to those of high skill.
- To encourage long-term participation and involvement in KGTC program opportunities.
