AGF Members Invited to Attend Open Houses on April 13 & May 10

The Alberta Gymnastics Federation (AGF) recognizes that the past year has been particularly challenging for the gymnastics community. These challenges have ranged from; high profile coaching misconduct cases in Canada and the United States, to growing demands on sporting organizations to undergo reforms that ensure systems are in place to prioritize athlete safety and wellbeing, to rising insurance costs and trampoline restrictions that have directly impacted club operations. The ripple effects of this shifting environment have impacted the gymnastics community nationally.

The AGF Board of Directors is hosting two Open Houses during the upcoming Provincial Championship competitions in Calgary and Edmonton to provide more information, hear from our members, and facilitate discussion. Topics to be covered will include insurance and risk management, Safe Sport initiatives, discipline, and finances.
