Who is Ed Vincent?
AGC is proud to be the Home of life time Coach and member Ed Vincent. For almost 50 years Ed has been contributing his talents to our facility and has touched and inspired many of us today! Ed is the founder of the Men’s Competitive Program at Altadore. The AGC Men’s Program, bench-marked Canadian Gymnastics History, as 2004 Olympic Champion Kyle Shewfelt, flipped his way into our hearts. Ed trains multiple times a week, and performs at our Home Show, at 78 years of age! He continues to be an inspiration to all our athletes and Coaches.
This will be our 12th Annual Ed Vincent Invitational. The first Ed Vincent Invitational was March 2-4, 2007 to commemorate Altadore Gymnastic Club’s 40th Anniversary.
The Altadore Gymnastic Club started modestly in 1967 as an after school activity in the Altadore Elementary School. Steady increases in registrations created the need for larger facilities. In 1977 the club moved to a converted warehouse and became the second club in Canada to have an in-ground pit and one of the first to have full-time salaried professional coaches. This move allowed Altadore to offer recreational gymnastics to thousands of Calgary children and pushed the club into a premier competitive position in Alberta and Canada.
We are proud to announce that in July we moved to an even bigger location to help us continue to grow into our next 50 years. We invite you to come and take part in 2018’s Ed Vincent Invitational, where we will celebrate our current gymnasts!
The 2018 EVI will be held at our NEW facility: 128, 10905 48th Street SE.
The closest hotel is the Deerfoot Inn & Casino.
