Together we are Stronger!

Due to COVID-19 we sadly had to cancel our in-person Provincial Gymnaestrada. While we are being socially distant, we are also bound together through a love of gymnastics. Thank you to the gymnasts who participated in our first virtual Gymnaestrada – we hope we can be together soon!

Thank you to Carly, Samantha, Tracy and Tanya from Manitoba Fusion for their help with organizing, editing and choreography of this routine.

Rhythmic Gymnastics Returns June 1

Rhythmic Gymnastics Manitoba has received notification from Sport Manitoba that the Province of Manitoba has approved our Return to Sport plan. As part of Restoring Safe Services Phase Two, rhythmic gymnastics clubs are able to return to practice if can maintain the social distancing and sanitary measures.

Although clubs are permitted to reopen, only those who can do so safely are able to resume. The reopening has happened quickly and clubs will need time to prepare a safe environment, register participants, meet the protocol requirements, and give families information about returning to sport in the new environment.

Update: AGM and Elections to the Board of Directors

The 2020 Rhythmic Gymnastics Manitoba Annual General Meeting has been changed to a virtual meeting at 7:00PM on Monday June 15th to allow for social distancing. Please RSVP to Nominations have been extended to May 19. Please see the updated documents below:
