Prince Rupert Gymnastics seeks BC Gymnastics’ legitimacy

President Will Spat is still seeking a Gymnastics B.C. registration as a member club.

The Prince Rupert Gymnastics Association (PRG) has officially registered with the province to get the club up and running, but there are still a few hurdles to clear before they can operate.

For starters, president Will Spat is still seeking a Gymnastics B.C. registration as a member club and, in order to do so, he’ll need to lay out the club’s plans for coaching, board members, facilities and procedures. If approved, Prince Rupert would join the likes of Fort St. John, Kitimat, Prince George, Quesnel, Smithers, Terrace and Williams Lake as Northern B.C. clubs.

Spat and the other board members are currently gathering equipment needs and looking to raise funds for newer equipment. The team must then inventory their stock for reference.

“All elements must be in place before we can allow our athletes to hit the mats. We are working hard and can always use more help,” said Spat.

The club will use the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre as its start-up location due to its high ceilings and further dimensions that fit the needs of an official Gymnastics BC location.
