Who We Are?

Since 2003, the Yellowknife Gymnastics Club (YKGC) has been operating out of a gymnastics facility within the Multiplex Arena - the only dedicated gymnastics facility within the NWT.

The facility was created when the community rallied together with many companies, organizations and

individuals stepping up to raise and/or donate funds. So, you could say that our foundation was built

on the commitment, support and generosity of our community.

The YKGC is a non-profit organization run by a volunteer Board of Directors and relies on parents, athletes and the community-at-large who support the YKGC through volunteering and fundraising.

Our Mission

It is the goal of the YKGC to provide recreational and competitive gymnastics in a safe, supportive and fun environment that promotes overall fitness, skill development and self-esteem.
