Gymnastics Insurance Landscape Changing Nation-Wide


A Message from Gymnastics BC:

Gymnastics BC is Adapting to New Insurance Requirements

Due to changes in national insurance coverage for gymnastics activities, effective July 1, 2019, Gymnastics BC will no longer permit the use of trampolines (see definition) in unstructured recreational programs, such as birthday parties and drop-ins.

Please review the Trampoline Insurance Limitations web page for full details.


Message from Chimo Gymnastics Club:

What Do these Changes Mean for You?

On behalf of Chimo Gymnastics Club we would like to thank you for your ongoing support.

As you may have already heard, insurance changes are coming into effect that will limit the activities in which trampoline usage is permitted.

Effective July 1, 2019, trampoline usage will no longer be permitted during unstructured programs, such as birthday parties, and drop-in activities. The use of trampolines will be permitted in structured programs, providing all policy requirements are met.

 We are confident that these changes will bring increased safety and awareness to our sport.

Our coaches and staff are working to develop new and exciting ways to continue offering fun and challenging activities during birthday parties and other unstructured programs, without using the trampoline (see definition).

For more information, please visit the Trampoline Insurance Limitations web page.

If you have any questions, please contact  chimoed@shaw.ca  We value your thoughts and feedback.

Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated as we navigate through the changes together.


Kind regards,

Chimo Gymnastics Club
