It’s been quite the year for the Key City Gymnastics Club, which has sent many of their athletes to competitions locally and abroad, often with with results to show.
The club sent over 22 athletes to Kamloops for the B.C. provincial championship, which can be an intimidating event with up to 40 gymnasts in each category. However, even though a few Key City athletes were there experiencing the provincial stage for the first time, everyone did really well.
In addition to sending a number of athletes to provincials, the Key City Club was represented in the B.C. Winter Games in Mission, with Taylor Johnstone and a sister duo—Emma and Kayley Lim—competing for the Kootenay zone.
Heading to an even bigger stage was Madysen Sandberg, Jaylee Lim and Catherin Spencer, who qualified and competed in the Western Canadian Championship in Saskatchewan.
Though Key City gymnasts have competed in large competitions far from home, they’ve also headed out to local and regional meets in Kimberley and the Okanagan.
The club congratulates Leanne Perrich, Mackenzie Carlstrom, Sabrina Martini, Taylor Potter, Janae Yoshinaka, Cole Vanhooren and Haley Casselman as they greaduate this year and head off to future endeavors.
The club will be having their year-end show—with the theme of Art in Motion—at Western Financial Place on Saturday, June 14th, starting at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the Key City Gymnastics Club or at the door on the night of the event.
Though the competition season is wrapping up, the club will be offering half- and full-day camps during July and August. There will also be special weekly activities and drop-in classes for children, teens and adults.
