We at Salta are very excited to be expanding once again. We will be expanding to the end of the building adding an additional 552 square meters to meet the growing demand for our classes. The expansion of the facility will accommodate growth in the recreational and competitive programs for our families in Medicine Hat and surrounding area.
In 2000 Salta was operating at maximum capacity and the Board of Directors started looking into a new facility or the possibility of expanding their current location. On December 6, 2001 a motion was made to form a building committee. Over the next year the committee met with the City of Medicine Hat securing an interest free loan. The committee was also successful in receiving a CIP (Community Initiatives Program) grant and two CFEP (Community Facility Enhancement Program) grants.
With the majority of funding in place Salta purchased the adjacent bays next door. Over the summer months of 2004 a contractor was hired to expand the current gym area by another 4400 square feet for a total gym space of 8000 square feet.
The expanded gym has a new state of the art inground pit. As well, the trampolines were moved to the main gym. The problem of overlapping gymnastics equipment no longer exists. Today, Salta Gymnastics Club boasts one of the finest gymnastics training facilities around.
