Gymnastics Canada Request for Proposals

Gymnastics Canada is looking for a CanGym Technical Contractor, familiar with recreational gymnastics, to develop the CanGym program.

The size of this project is large and requires a wide knowledge base of multiple gymnastics disciplines.  Recognizing this, the contractor does not have to be one individual.  A team may wish to put forward a bid instead.
