Thank you for the AMAZING SUPPORT from the Community Grocery Card programs run by:
Save On Foods and Kootenay Coop
Many families like to increase their orders and use the cards as gifts around the office. We’re running a Christmas promotion – purchase by Monday, Nov 25th – delivery in early December makes this the ideal gift.
Grocery cards are also a great way to buy your Christmas groceries.
The cash you’re already planning to spend, still buys you the same amount of groceries.
The Club earns 7- 8% of free $$$ due to the generous Gift Card programs of our Community Supporters
Then Later add your child(ren) as new participants.
Once your new account is set up, Hold Your Spot registration works exactly the same as it always has.
How Hold Your Spot Works
Members with a child currently attending Recreational Classes are invited to Re-Register and Hold Your Spot for the next session (same class, day & time). This option is available to participants who are currently attending an active class in the current session (siblings must wait for general registration).
After the deadline, registration will only be accepted during the general registration period when spots are open to new participants and available first come first served.
How To Change Classes?
Simply register for the new class & time you wish to attend. So long as there’s enough space we will move you to the new spot. If we don’t have space to make the change; your old spot will be reserved. During your registration, if you find your first choice class is full, be sure to register to the Wait List.

A lot of work has been accomplished with the renovation project. We’ve sure learned that working in a 100 year old building is easier said than done. But the end is in sight and we expect to be using the new space this fall.
The locker rooms and bathrooms have be redesigned and consolidated to the North end by the entrance.
The old boys change room has been demoed and opened up. The stairway has been removed and all walls have come down.
Much “behind the scenes” work has been completed; including HAZMAT remediation, new plumbing, and new fire suppressant sprinklers.
Flooring has been purchased with delivery expected before Fall classes.
Details for the retractable wall will soon be finalized. We’re hoping to see installation before the start of classes.
Our estimated $50,000.00 budget fell a little short of what the project needed; so we won’t be able to take on much in the way of finishes or painting right away. This won’t stop us getting the space into use.
Stay tuned for more details and future plans to finish the space with a bright new paint job!
Trampoline Use & Insurance Rates for gymnastics clubs across Canada have undergone some big changes this past year. We hope to minimize the impact these changes will have on our classes and our users. Here’s what to expect:
Membership Fees are increasing for all programs. The increase to insurance rates have resulted in GymBC increasing their membership fees for all users. We have no choice but pass these costs on. Learn more about your membership fees here.
Regular gymnastics and trampoline classes require supervising coaches to have a minimum level of certification. Nearly all Glacier coaches meet this requirement. There will be no changes to how we use trampoline in our regular classes.
Birthday Parties & Drop In – Insurance requirements will no longer permit trampoline use during unstructured programs, including Birthday Parties, Drop-In session, and Parkour classes. When attending these programs you can expect portions of the gym to be closed and unavailable for use.
This fall we are launching a new online registration system.
With the huge workload that Fall registration entails (not to mention the stress than many parents feel); we have decided this is not a good time to change our registration systems.
This will probably happen in December.
Registration will work exactly the same way it has for the past few years. Everything you’re already used to will be exactly the same. We expect all information to be available on the website before Aug 27.
Please take a few minutes to ensure you have access to your account before registration starts. Double check your email is up to date and that your children are all entered as students. Instructions can be found here.
Fundraising is just one of the ways the club is working to meet increased financial pressures. We hope to get into the community and show some team spirit.
Everyone needs to buy groceries, and purchasing gift cards through the club doesn’t cost parents anything extra. The target of $30K in sales will result in about $2500 going towards the Club’s fundraising budget of $10K. These funds will go towards developing the multipurpose room and purchasing equipment (new beam!).
