Vaulting and tumbling at new centre

  • Print

Young gymnasts will soon have more space to bounce, balance and jump as the
Winnipeg Gymnastics Centre recently got the green light to move into a larger leased space in the RM of Macdonald.

The Macdonald council granted a conditional use permit to the owners of the building at 171 Samborski Dr., just west of the City of Winnipeg and municipal boundary on McGillvray Boulevard.
Project manager and centre board member Peregrin Maksimovich said the new 10,800-square-foot space will allow the centre’s approximately 300 members more room in which to learn gymnastic skills and to practise for competitions.

The centre, a non-profit organization that has operated for 30 years, is currently located in a 6,000-square-foot facility on Clarence Avenue.

"This is the perfect fit in terms of floor space, and our kids are really looking forward to it," Maksimovich said. "We’re hoping to be operational in September."

Flooring must be installed and office space constructed within the new location.

Because the new location isn’t too far from their current one, Maksimovich said, he doesn’t think anyone will mind the move.
