Things to Know

General Info

What type of training do the coaches have?


Salta has a professional roster of qualified coaches who are trained through Gymnastics Canada and the National Coaches Certification Program (Levels 1-4). Not only are our coaches professionally trained but they all hold a Respect in Sport certificate. All staff are also required to undergo police and child welfare screening. We also have a team of Junior Coaches who are under the mentorship of our certified coaches. They assist with the classes and are learning valuable skills so they too can move up the ranks to one day coach on their own!
