Gymnastics is one of the three foundational sports (along with swimming and athletics), and can build a child’s potential for ANY sport. By teaching kids to move in a variety of ways, we are building their physical literacy. Gymnastics is also FUN, which teaches kids to enjoy exercise and physical activity, which will have a lasting impact on their attitudes towards movement as they become adults.
Why Rhythmic Gymnastics?
Rhythmic Gymnastics is fundamental for developing basic hand-eye coordination, that can be transferred to any sport or activity. RG also allows gymnasts to perform, and to get creative with movement, encouraging them to shine with the skills they are strong with, and still work on those that challenge them. Competitively, RG offers both individual and group categories, so the gymnast can choose what is most enjoyable for him/her. There are also more relaxed competitive opportunities, that don’t involve giving up other sports and activities.
FVRG is dedicated to follows and exceed all safety standards/policies, and has approved memberships with Rhythmic Gymnastics BC and Gymnastics Canada. Our coaches engage in formal coach training, and are held to the highest standards in the country. We provide a safe environment where you can watch your children while they are in programs. FVRG strives to offer programs for athletes in all stages of the Long Term Athlete Development model, respecting that not all bodies are built for competitive RG, but all can benefit from RG training.
Fraser Valley Rhythmic Gymnastics is led by two Moms (Kate and Tasha) who are passionate about child development, physical literacy, community and sport development. We offer classes for ages 2+ in our home gym in Chilliwack, up to six community schools in Chilliwack, and are now expanding programs into Agassiz and Hope.
We want to see children develop healthy habits, challenge themselves through sport and movement and have fun doing it, so that a lifetime of active participation is not only achievable but habitual. (You can read up more about the importance of physical literacy here.
We see each participant and their family as part of the FVRG Family and want to foster long term relationships.
