Our Pitch to You
As QTGC has continued to grow and enjoy success, it has reached capacity in terms of its present facility. The Club has relocated 5 times in the past 40 years, we need a permanent home! As we continue to grow in members and extend our programs, as we strive to build on the Club’s successes, a new and permanent facility is essential. As our members increase, we find ourselves needing more and more equipment to serve larger classes and in order to allow more classes running at once. Due to our lack of space, some of our equipment has had to be installed close together and therefore not allowing an ideal amount of safely clearance. Without the proper amount of safety clearance, many apparatus’ can not be used by athletes at the same time as others. We need a larger gym!
How is this going to happen? We need YOUR help! The Club is in the process of actively seeking financial support for this project. We are looking at opportunities for municipal and corporate partnerships. The support of the membership, parents and the wider community of Quesnel will be an integral part of the process of raising funds to make a new facility possible.
What are we looking for? We are not looking for any operational fees but for funding for capital expenditures. At current membership levels and with responsible financial management, the Club has been able to sustain itself. With a new facility and the potential this will present in terms of growth, we believe that the Club will remain financially sustainable as regards operational costs.
Facility Development Plan
QTGC cultivates and fosters a growing group of gymnastics enthusiasts in the Quesnel community. The Club provides access and opportunity for year ’round sport and recreation for all age groups, from walking age to youth, from teen to adult and even for more senior members of our community!
A new facility will increase Quesnel’s capacity to host multi-disciplinary sport events involving the attendance and participation of regional and provincial athletes. The economic benefits of such events will not only help the Club to prosper but will also create economic activity that will profit business in the wider community of Quesnel.
As our plans progress, we will keep you informed with updates on our website and Facebook page.
With YOUR help and YOUR support, we look forward to the day when we can announce the location of our new facility!
