About logo

Alberta Gymnastics Federation is the governing body for gymnastics in Alberta. We provide a range of information & resources to recreational gymnasts, athletes, coaches, and judges. We are a not-for-profit organization.

We support you

The Federation’s primary role is to provide administrative support in the development and delivery of programs and competitions in Artistic, Trampoline & Tumbling, Recreational Gymnastics and Acrobatic Gymnastics, as well as in National Coaching Certification programs and events.

The Federation has two areas of responsibility

  • Coordinating provincial gymnastics activities
  • Providing membership and support services to Alberta club members

We keep you updated and provide you with the tools you need to be successful.

Our purpose

The Alberta Gymnastics Federation values the growth and development of gymnastics and the opportunity to encourage and support the clubs, gymnasts, coaches, and judges who bring gymnastics to life. We work hard to strengthen the relationship between the National Gymnastics Organization and our provincial and local associations to ensure consistency and cohesiveness in gymnastics. We also strive to inspire gymnasts, coaches, and judges to meet their own potential through athlete and leadership development courses.

As a not for profit agency, the Alberta Gymnastics Federation believes in supporting the passion of these athletes to promote and strengthen gymnastics as both a recreational activity and a competitive sport in Alberta.

Our Team

Meet the people who make the difference.
