City Lease Agreement

The City is moving the Club from our old License to Occupy agreement to a formal Lease Agreement.

In keeping with policy (City-Owned Property Lease/Rental Fees) the lease agreement makes the Club responsible for:

  • Taxes: ? we’re not sure…  $360 000.00 is our estimate – but we received a permissive tax exemption for 2017/18.
  • Rent: $18000.00 based on 5% of the above (a decrease from current $19845.00)
  • Operational & Maintenance Fees: $14700.00 (variable amount that will fluctuate with actual costs).
  • Water & Sewer: $8466.00

As water and electrical services are not metered; costs are an estimate based on the square footage we use.

This represents an increase of approximately $20-$23,000.00
This represents a net-zero policy, whereby the operational costs of the facility assigned to our footprint are passed on – at full cost to the Club and its membership.

Volunteers Needed – February 18th

If you and your gymnast are able to help sell Save-On Foods grocery cards at the mall, we would love to have you join us! Please fill in your info on this form to sign up for a shift. Selling shifts are 3 hours long and we would like to have gymnasts present to represent the club along with their parent.

This is a simple way to support the club and fulfil your volunteer hours. Also, we have sales incentives again – the more grocery cards you sell, either at Save On or door to door, the more opportunities you have to win prizes such as passes to Ainsworth and the Civic Theatre, gift cards to the Hume Hotel and Ardene, gymnastics parties or reduced gymnastics fees.

We hope to see you on the 18th!

Volunteer to Make a Difference!

Volunteers do a lot more than move equipment, run events & clean the gym. The very existence of the club relies on a dedicated group of volunteer Board Members who maintain the long term viability of the Club.

Last year the club voted to increase the size of the board to include 12 directors. This decision was made specifically to address the administrative challenges we currently face. Building a larger and more diversified Board is a key component of managing the Club’s growth. A skilled Board can work to ensure the long term sustainability of our management team.

Do you have the skills or vision to help the Club navigate these changes while ensuring it remains a strong, vibrant community asset for years to come?

Contact Club Manager, Steve Long or any Director. to find out how you can get involved.

Glacier Gymnastics Club Society

Thanks to all the Volunteers who make Glacier Gymnastics a special place!

Glacier Gymnastics Club – Building Healthy Humans
Glacier Gymnastics is a member based, not-for-profit society operated by a volunteer board of directors. The Society came about through the hard work and dedication of volunteer parents. We have well over 700 participants each season (over 1000 if we count drop in and birthdays). The commitment of volunteers and staff has made GGC an essential organization in Nelson and area. Continued dedication from all of our members is vital to assure we will continue to have a great facility, with excellent equipment and qualified staff.

At Glacier we consider gymnastics the ultimate foundation for all sports. Gymnastics helps develop body awareness, strength, flexibility, balance and coordination, just to name a few. Glacier Gymnastics Club believes in enhancing confidence, physical and mental development, and providing an overall great experience.
