BC Diving and the Academy will also host Sport Science seminars at least once per month that will be open to all coaches and athletes in the province.
The goal of the Academy is to offer the very best gymnastics and dryland diving training experience possible. We know the value of gymnastics and core movement training to young children. We have seen kids develop strength, flexibility, agility, courage, discipline, and many other traits that will help these kids with any other sport they may try in their lifetimes. Gymnastics is a great “base sport” and is recognized by many sport educators as a key activity in learning to master your body.
We also know that sport is FUN! And the long term athlete development model (LTAD) for Gymnastics and Diving puts emphasis on skill development through PLAY. All of our coaches are certified by Gymnastics Canada and Diving Canada and are registered with the NCCP. We adhere to the philosophy of teaching FUN, FITNESS and FUNDAMENTALS!
