As a reputable child-serving organization, the Bluewater Gymnastics Club (BWG) has developed the following policies and procedures for employees/volunteers as well as our participants, members, parents and Board Members.
While every individual is valued and unique, we come together as an organization in the best interests of children and their families. The safety, rights, and well-being of children we serve are at the core of our daily operations. We nurture supportive relationships with children while balancing and encouraging appropriate boundaries. We support the Coaching Association of Canada Responsible Coaching Movement and have taken the pledge. We are trained by the Canadian Center for Child Protection and have coaches participate in relevant modules of the Commit to Kids Program based on coaching level. Both programs are aligned with Gymnastics Ontario and Gymnastics Canada.
We pride ourselves on having a strong brand in the community, we have a standard of excellence to uphold as we are a not-for-profit organization led by a volunteer Board with over 35 years locally supporting athletes and families.
