New home for gymnastics in Golden

The Kicking Horse Gymnastics Club will be making a move to a new home.

The Kicking Horse Gymnastics Club has found a new space to call home.

The club’s Board of Directors met and voted to go forward with signing a lease which will lead the group to moving out of the Rec Plex. The Kicking Horse Gymnastics Club is relocating 907 10th St. N., the building behind Kal Tire.

“This is an exciting time for us as a club. We will be able to offer more programming, a more consistent schedule and we will no longer need to strain the equipment with set-up and take-down,” said Christine Muise, the club’s head coach.

Muise said the group will go through a three-phase action plan that they would appreciate community assistance with.

First they will be removing shelving, a wooden overhang and a non-structural wall in the main shop area, which they think could be done in a couple of days with about 10 people, but they would need a B.C. licensed electrician who can uninstall several unnecessary light units.

This work needs to be done as soon as possible (Aug. 18 to 25), so if you feel like you can offer help please email or phone Muise at 344-0682, and

Then they need a painting and cleaning crew to prepare the space for moving in (they predict this will take another 10 people during the week of Aug. 26 to 31).

And finally they will need help moving in their heavy and challenging equipment. Lots of people and vehicles will be needed  for this phase (Aug. 31 to Sept. 6).

The club is currently working on organizing for the September session, and is working with the intention forms that were given back in the spring. Muise is optimistic that they will be able to start their first week of gymnastics on Sept. 10.
