The Grande Prairie Gymnastics Society was founded in 1973 by a group of parents including Dr. Bob Waldenberger and Diana (Kuhlman) Tissington, who shared the same passion for gymnastics. Bethe Goldie, a retired Physical Education instructor at the Grande Prairie Regional College, pioneered a tradition of coaching excellence the Grande Prairie Gymnastics Society can be proud of. In 1980 the club became a registered society.
The Gymnastics Club initially trained in “set up, take down” multipurpose facilities. The GPRC gymnasium served as the Society's first training center. Many years later, the Club moved to a Richmond Industrial Park 3000 sq. foot multipurpose center located next to Tartan Auto Body. The first “dedicated space” facility was acquired through the purchase of a 10,000 sq. foot warehouse located behind the Quality Hotel in the industrial park.
In September of 2005, the Grande Prairie Gymnastics Society moved to its new world-class 50,000 sq. foot gymnastics training center, it is considered one of the biggest, state-of-the-art gymnastic training centre’s in the country.
