12 Athletes Set to Compete at Western Canada Cup in Grande Prairie this Weekend

The 2019 Trampoline & Tumbling (T&T) Western Canada Cup competition will take place at Grande Prairie Gymnastics in Grande Prairie, Alberta this Friday, July 14 through Sunday, July 16. 12 Alberta athletes will compete in Provincial levels 1 through 4 in synchronized trampoline, individual trampoline, double mini-trampoline and tumbling.

The competition will see about 175 athletes in total, with representation from the Western Canadian Provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. On Sunday, July 16th the provinces will go head to head as part of Team Finals which will be set to a superhero theme with various prizes to be won. Check out the Alberta Gymnastics Federation Flickr album for photos from Team Finals at this year’s Provincial Championships to see what makes T&T Team Finals so unique and why bringing a pair of ear plugs, in addition to dressing up, might be a good idea.

Congratulations and best of luck to all the athletes, coaches, judges and team managers taking part!
