OUR JOURNEY SO FAR

1969

VANCOUVER PHOENIX GYMNASTICS IS FOUNDED

Vancouver Phoenix Gymnastics was founded in 1969, by Sev Heiberg, a PhD Nuclear Physicist, who held a lifelong love for gymnastics, first as a competitor and then as a high level coach.  Having founded the Ottawa Gymnastics Club in 1960, Sev traded Ottawa in for Vancouver, where he built the Phoenix Gymnastics Club on traditions and values of generosity, sportsmanship, work ethic, honour and his love of gymnastics.

1990 - 1997

BREAKING GROUND

In the early years the Club bounced around, calling home the old Boys & Girls Club located in Kitsilano, St. James Community Square in 1990, the Jericho Hill Centre in 1997, followed by the Heather Street gym, with 5600 sq. ft. to house the competitive program.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY

“I thoroughly enjoyed their special needs program with Leigh as well as their adult gymnastics group during my time with them. They really are an all-around gym, with the staff, coaches and gym equipment for all levels of training/instructions you might be looking for!”
