Since October 30, 1969, Club Gymnacentre has been proudly fulfilling its primary mission of offering its customers the opportunity to get moving, while developing their gymnastics skills, in a safe and accessible way. 


The gymnastics center brings together over 1,000 athletes, from 18 months to adulthood, from the Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve and Rivière-des-Prairies-Pointe-aux-Trembles neighborhoods. 


Programs offered

The non-profit organization has two programs: the recreational sector and the competitive sector. The recreational sector is aimed at those from babies to 17 years of age who want to learn the basics of the basics of gymnastics, while still enjoying the thrill of participating in a sporting discipline.

The competitive program encompasses four levels: junior, regional, provincial and national. Club Gymnacentre also offers Sport-études and student-athletes the opportunity to train at their center.

It's important to note that Club Gymnacentre trains only female gymnasts in the competitive program.
