Britannia Gymnastics Club – Looking for Recreational Coaches!
Britannia Gymnastics is located at Britannia Community Centre in the heart of East Van, just off Commercial Drive. We are a non-for profit, fun first, recreational gymnastics program. We are looking for gymnastics coaches who can help provide a safe and enjoyable learning environment for athletes of all ages and skill levels. We have an adaptable, inclusive program that focuses on meeting the needs of all athletes.

We have classes for ages 18 months to 15 years of age, all recreational levels. Due to the inclusive and recreational nature of our program, we do not have report cards rather encourage engagement, safety and fun.
