Gymnastics Canada launches Values-Based Coaching Module

The module, which takes about 45 minutes to complete, will help coaches learn about the True Sport Principles, and how to implement values-based programming in real-life situations. True Sport defines Canada’s commitment to values-based and principle-driven sport and is based on the values of fairness, excellence, inclusion and fun; and is driven by the seven True Sport Principles: Go For It, Play Fair, Respect Others, Keep It Fun, Stay Healthy, Include Everyone and Give Back. These values and principles were developed in consultation with Canadians who identified the potential of sport to instill character, strengthen community, and increase opportunities for excellence, but who felt the sport system was falling short. True Sport, an initiative of the CCES, is designed to give people, communities, and organizations the means by which to leverage the benefits of good sport from a platform of shared values and principles.

The module is available HERE. Coaches will also be able to claim three professional development points by successfully completing the module. The module is available to everyone, free of charge. To claim their professional development points, coaches will need to send a PDF of the certificate they receive at the end and email it to coaching@gymcan.org.

We are working to secure some prizes to say #ThanksCoach so please nominate someone special today!

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 rgm.ed@sportmanitoba.ca. Nominations have been extended to May 19. Please see the updated documents below:
