Update on Current and Upcoming Programs
Good Afternoon MSGC Athletes and Families,
Thank you to everyone who has been in touch with us to offer their support and kind words in this uncertain time. We are grateful for our gymnastics family and sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this fluid situation. We have been watching the updates and following the recommendations of our provincial and federal government and health authorities as we make decisions pertaining to our current and future program plans. We recognize that our families have many questions about cancellation policies, the reimbursement of fees and timelines around when/how participants will be allowed to resume gymnastics. We will continue to update our families as we make decisions for our future Spring, Summer and Fall Programs.
We want to assure you that we are taking a thoughtful and responsive approach to our planning. At this time, all Spring Session #1 Active Start, Homeschool, CanGym and Recreational/T&T Programs will receive a credit for the remainder of the session and including the week of March 16th-21st which they will be able to use for any future program. All Spring Session #2 Registrations have the option for a refund or credit to use towards a future program.
We recognize that this is a challenging time for our families and community as we adapt to the changing environment around us. We are optimistic that together, we will persevere and move forward. Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding and we look forward to seeing everyone back in the gym in the future.
We will continue to keep you informed. Please email email@example.com with any questions you may have.

MSRC Management and Staff
Mountain Shadows Gymnastics Club (MSGC) opened its doors in Okotoks, Alberta on October 15, 1996. As one of the few privately owned gymnastic clubs in Alberta, MSGC offers an 8000 square meter facility equipped for recreational programs and a girls’ competitive program for gymnasts in JO Level 2 to 10. Equipped with 3 floor-level trampolines and a large 6 foot deep loose foam pit, MSGC is an excellent location for all types of recreational gymnastics for boys and girls as well as recreational trampolining and tumbling and all types of group outings and birthdays.
Located in the fast-growing town of Okotoks, MSGC not only serves the many gymnasts and groups of its home town, but is also within a 15 minute drive of Calgary, High River, Black Diamond, and Turner Valley areas.
MSGC is owned by Jim McLuskey, who has over 50 years’ experience coaching competitive and recreational gymnastics. He is a Level 3 certified coach in the National Coaching Certification Program and also has a degree in Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education. Jim was also founder and head coach of the Altadore Gymnastics Club of Calgary. All of the Mountain Shadows staff are certified in the National Coaching Certification Program and are members of the Alberta Gymnastics Federation. Coaches are here to support and encourage children of all ages and abilities in the sport of gymnastics. Michelle Bahr is the manager and has been with Mountain Shadows in this capacity almost since its opening. Nicole Pearse is the Recreational Program Coordinator and takes pride in the fact that MSGC offers well organized and quality programs for all the gymnasts of the area.
